Much like Willy Street in Madison, Brady is a fun street to stroll, graze on delicious food and people watch. Some musts -- Gloriosos Italian Grocery, Mima's, the bakery on the corner (can't remember the name).

From the Italian market, to the bars, and even just walking around, Brady street is a fun part of Milwaukee.

We love Thainamite in Brady Street for sushi and Thai. Great Sake selection, too. My eyes are far bigger than my stomach here!

So many good places to eat and drink with a more mature crowd. My husband and I "bar hop" Brady Street often :-)

There is always something going on on or around Brady Street. Glorioso's Italian grocery is my favorite. Plenty of good bistros, bars and cafes to stop at for a coffee or bite to eat.

This is a great area to hang out in, it appears to be about 1/2 mile of bars restaurants and small shops. There is a lot of pedestrian traffic and the people were generally friendly. The place kind of has a hipster vibe in the downtown area without a great deal of panhandling. No matter what kind of bar or... More

First off, parking on the street is free after 6pm, but it was difficult to find a spot around 5pm-6pm. The street has lots of little shops and restaurants. The shops vary from boutiques to barber shops and restaurants varied from corner bars to sit down gourmet. This is a very LGBT friendly neighborhood as well. Overall it's a cute... More

Abundant bars and restaurants, as well as shopping, in a 4-5 block stretch. Something for everybody. Very few chain establishments. Best Italian deli in Milwaukee. 2 thai restaurants. Balzac bar and restaurant very unique. Fun drinks at Hi-Hat
