9th Floor | Kimpton The Journeyman

Our Downtown Milwaukee Restaurant + Bar

Welcome to The Outsider, the kind of place where you’ll want to become an insider real quick. The indoor/outdoor rooftop restaurant and bar always has something going on, from backyard barbecues on Sundays to shuffleboard tournaments. Glass walls make it a great destination Spring, Summer and Fall. A trellis keep things comfortable in the warmer months, while cold temps brings fire pits and blankets that make being outside just as cozy as in.

Rooftop Bar

Rooftop Takeover

Plan a private event at The Outsider and you’ll have exclusive access to the amazing features and amenities — fire pits, cabana-style seating, large-scale games, and sunset views, to name a few — that make the rooftop one of the most coveted spots in the city.


Drinks to Clink

You’ll never go without something to sip. Try one of the festive cocktails or regional small-batch spirits. For something sudsy, beer is available in bottles and on tap, the latter of which is exclusively dedicated to Milwaukee-based craft beer. With wine, we’ve got the whole spectrum from approachable to hard-to-find covered.
