    Milwaukee's Finest

     
    FROM THE Spring 2018 ISSUE
     

Rent your space at the Kimpton Journeyman Hotel and get so much more than a place to meet. 

The Kimpton Journeyman, located in Milwaukee’s Third Ward district, has 158 guest rooms, a rooftop bar and craftsman details for groups to enjoy. The crowning finish is the selection of team-building offerings the hotel helps coordinate. Since the Third Ward is within walking distance of so many outstanding attractions, the hotel has compiled activities building off local specialties like the Milwaukee Public Market. One popular team-building activity sends teams to the market with instructions to prepare a onecourse meal, giving participants 20 minutes to shop and 40 minutes to create a dish to share. 

“Other popular nonfood activities include building bird houses with a variety of obscure materials; scavenger hunts that take teams through the Historic Third Ward neighborhoods; and decorating piñatas followed by a Mexican dinner, complete with a mariachi band,” says Mary Kruse, director of sales and marketing at the hotel.  

Chicago hospitality collective 16” on Center partners with local businesses to turn everything from bars to theaters into serviceable event venues. Founding partners Bruce Finkelman and Craig Golden have transformed 14 businesses (like Bite Café, Dusek’s Board & Beer, MONEYGUN, The Promontory, Thalia Hall and more) and have provided a single point of contact for event planners interested in utilizing these spaces as venues.
