Tom & Jerries

Every weekend in Dec.

Join us this holiday season to enjoy a Tom & Jerry, a warming and bracing cocktail perfect for cold weather and high spirits. As usual, our mix is made from scratch and served hot, featuring Korbel brandy and Bacardi 8 rum. This year we are offering collectable mugs, created just for Bryant's by local artist Pete Klockau!

To enjoy a Tom & Jerry, purchase a drink ticket from your bartender or server after you have been seated. We'll save your seat while you visit our special room upstairs and trade your ticket for a delicious Tom and Jerry. 

See Bryant's Facebook page for dates and times.

Thank you for considering a trip to Bryant’s Cocktail Lounge, Milwaukee’s Classic Cocktail Lounge.  Please keep in mind that we are not a bar or a club, we are a cocktail lounge and we make each of your drinks to order from scratch- in order to keep things moving smoothly, we follow a traditional method of seating that some people are unfamiliar with.  We want you to be able to relax and enjoy your time at Bryant’s, but there are a few policies that need to be understood.  


  • Seating is on a first come, first served basis.

  • You must have a seat to be served a cocktail at Bryant’s.

  • We are unable to push tables together in the Velvet Lounge.

  • You will not be seated until a majority of your party arrives.
