      DON'T LIKE - A waste of time and space
      Rude bitter staff. No customers (other than me) in leather. Have had their share of recent deaths among staff - gone to a 'cash only' payment system. Hope they close- the sooner the better

      What a waste of time this place is!
      This was our first trip to Wisconsin; while in Milwaukee we looked up the local gay bars on-line. As the Harbor Room received many stars and good reviews we went this past Saturday. The bar is in an old building - one of the few left on the East end of this street. As we wondered how safe it was to park our rental car we saw some older guys depart the bar. As we walked in we felt like stepping back in times assuming that leather bars in the 1970s had this kind of decor. Everything felt old and in serious need of some updating. Almost all chairs at the bar were taken by older gentlemen who seem to frequent this place all the time. We found two seats at the end of the bar and after finally receiving "attention" from the barkeep we ordered two drinks. The bartender quickly turned out to be unfriendly, disinterested to serve us and unskilled to deal with new customers. We asked him if we could start a tab and pay with credit card only to be informed that the minimum on credit cards is $20.00. Are you kidding me? We then asked if they had an ATM and he replied: "We are the ATM" explaining that the transaction fee would be $4.00 and the minimum charge would be $50.00. What a scam! Looking around at other patrons I wondered how many of them even had $50.00 available on their bank account and that this scheme was clearly aimed at tourists/ new people. After our one and only round of drinks we paid up (in cash of course). This place nor the bartenders deserve even one star on any rating. This place must have seen better times many many moons ago. If you are looking for a place to go in Milwaukee we suggest you keep up your Google search for a better alternative to spend your money when visiting Milwaukee.

      used to be bartender
      this bar was filled with the best group of men from opening till 2005 when I was terminated for following rules , this bar was the premier bar during that time I sincerely hope for the community that it remains the same, we were well respected and always full to the rafters , we were heavily involved in the community my husband who passed in jan ,permitted me to work as a bartender due to the caliber of people involved I hope they have retained it, please update your website,i am proud of HR I hope they are also

      This is a nice little local bar with typical Milwaukee cream city arcitecture. The patrons are friendly and there are always drink specials. Bring back the pool table!

      Harbor Room revisited
      I hope the Harbor Room is brought back to its wonderful days when it was the place to be. I think they got away from the good old days when everybody had fun. Bartenders were the greatest and the patrons were just as much fun. Come on Fitz put it together, I know you can.
