Swig's earthy tones offer a warm and cozy environment that makes for the perfect place to spend your evening and experience a unique, big-city atmosphere.

In 2005 Swig became Milwaukee's first and only small plate dining restaurant, and our menu now includes lunch, entrees, salads, sandwiches, fireside dining, and a large outdoor patio. It's meant to be a fun, shared experience where guests can choose from a variety of flavors and sample several menu items each visit. We also proudly feature more than 20 martinis, an eclectic array of wines and champagnes as well as award-winning desserts. We'd love to serve you soon.
