Bootleggers bar in Milwaukee is Closed

October 24, 2010

Yes- It’s official.
Walking around downtown last night, I saw that Bootleggers Bar in Milwaukee is official closed. It looks like they already have logos out on the windows for their new bar: Whiskey River. This is the only news I can find about the transition.

I have not heard anything official, but it sounds like we will not be having Wing N Sing on Oct 18th. I would expect that Wing N sing will return on November 8th (perhaps?) under the new name “Whiskey River Saloon”.

This is all thats left of the website.

Facebook has some posts about its closing

Perhaps Whiskey River is trying to latch on to the country bar theme that seems to be transforming another bar on Water St.

We’ll miss you Bootleggers. I got to hang out with Joe the Plumber there.
