About Best Place at Pabst

Best Place's history & tradition offer a venue unparalleled in Milwaukee. With both indoor & outdoor spaces at the former Pabst Brewery we will help to create a magical & memorable event! There are two venues available, Blue Ribbon Hall & The Great Hall, both beautiful & historic, each with their own unique charm. Recipient of numerous “best of ” awards and one of Milwaukee’s most desirable and iconic event spaces, Best Place is the ideal venue.

Blue Ribbon Hall along with it's associated outdoor courtyard are actually located within a school built in 1858. The buildings reflect the architecture of the early Renaissance of Germany of the 15th & 16th centuries. Remodeled in 1940, the room is adorned with colorful fresco murals, ornate architecture and period furniture & artifacts. In the warmer months the outdoor courtyard is a ideal spot for weddings.

The Great Hall, the original corporate headquarters of Pabst Brewing built in 1880 and includes the former office of Captain Frederick Pabst. Renovated in 2014, "Great" is an understatement, as the original stained glass windows allow natural light to flood the room. You can see the wonderful Milwaukeean history in the wood flooring repurposed from the old brew house along with the ornate woodwork throughout the room. Below The Great Hall, in what was formerly the infirmary, is the Speakeasy, remodeled to resemble a pre-Prohibition taproom.

We could not have been happier! Hosting our wedding and reception in the Great Hall was perfect for how we envisioned our wedding. And the Event Coordinator, Kimberly, is phenomenal to work with. We've only beend married 3 weeks, but have already talked about throwing a big anniversary party there for year 5 or 10. :)

Kim and all the staff at Best Place are AMAZING. Everything went perfectly and they are so accommodating! Kim brings calm to the chaos of setting up, answered all my million emails super quickly, and she is a very kind and caring person. Our wedding was in the Blue Ribbon Hall and with the courtyard, it made for beautiful ambiance. I can't get over how nice the staff is, and everyone really does love their job. They even kept the gift shop open late so our guests could buy PBR merchandise! Best Place is the perfect venue for your big day!
