About Us

Located in Milwaukee’s historic and critically-acclaimed Walker’s Point neighborhood, Shaker’s Cigar Bar has offered patrons an unique and unforgettable savoir-fare for decades. Sitting atop what was once a cemetery, this former cooperage operated as a speakeasy and brothel during Prohibition under the ownership of the legendary Capone brothers. In the 1990's, It was an occasional haunt of infamous serial killer, Jeffrey Dahmer. 


Proudly serving a myriad of local, national and international guests since 1986, our mission has always been to provide high-quality fare, libations, and cigars for those that wish to combine a fun and enjoyable ambiance with authentic worldly cooking, exquisite service, and an unparalleled list of vintage spirits and wine into one extraordinary experience. 

Whether it be our live band performances, one of our 5 quirky, guided historic and ghost tours, or an overnight stay in our brothel-turned-Airbnb, we strive to be so much more than just a “bar”, and see to it that each of our guests is captivated and enthralled the moment they walk through our doors.

Welcome home.
