This is a really cool place. Very old building. Cigar smoke is awful. I would have stayed longer if the smoke wasn’t so bad. Ghost tour was interesting. Our guide Noah was great.

Beautiful building with historic furnishings and a haunted history adding to the atmosphere makes Shakers a great place to enjoy a cigar and have a cocktail (Death in the Afternoon pairs well). The owner gave us more background on the place and even helped us...More

They sell cigars and alcohol and you can consume both within this business. Need I say more? We had an awesome waitress and I wish I could remember her name. April or something like that, but she was fun and attentive, as well as attractive....More

With all due respect, you are misrepresenting the facts and maligning a business which has been in business for over three decades as the only Cigar Bar in Milwaukee, and the only Cigar Bar with an award-winning Food and Wine program in the Midwest. We...More

I have been a patron at Shakers for many years because I enjoy the atmosphere, smoking cigarettes indoors, and the food is great. However, last night my friend was kicked out of the bar by the owner, Bob, for making jokes about ghosts. My friend...More

I love ghosts. I have been on many ghost tours. Unfortunately, this one might have been better but we had a tour guide who couldn't control one of the tourists. She wouldn't stop asking questions, interjecting, making inane comments, etc. She ruined the tour for...More
