The Pabst Theater is the centerpiece of Milwaukee’s downtown theater district; able to accommodate virtually all performing art forms with the stunningly beautiful backdrop of a European opera house.
Named for its location along the Milwaukee River, The Riverside Theater is one of the most opulent of Milwaukee’s theaters, welcoming high caliber artists ranging from Kevin Hart and Neil Young to Norah Jones and Aretha Franklin.
Located within Turner Hall, a National Historic Landmark, Turner Hall Ballroom is the perfect backdrop to an eclectic mix of shows that welcomes all ideas, ages and cultures.
Adorned with string lights, hanging plants, and the smell of freshly brewed coffee, the intimate atmosphere of The Back Room @ Colectivo is a perfect space for an up close and personal evening with any artist, whether you’re enjoying a craft cocktail at a jazz show, or standing right against the stage listening to the next big thing in indie.
Pabst Theater Group is a founding member of the National Independent Venue Association (NIVA). NIVA is securing financial support to preserve the national ecosystem of independent venues and promoters.
These entertainment hubs are critical to their local economies and tax bases as employers, tourism destinations, and revenue generators for neighboring businesses such as restaurants, hotels, and retail. Independent venues exist in every state across the country; they were the first to be closed, they will be the last to open. The economic recovery process will extend past just reopening the front doors, requiring solutions unique to the industry.
