Sunday Bloody Mary Bar

Sundays 11AM-2PM

Sundays just got better with MOTOR’s new build-your-own Bloody Mary bar. We provide you a pint full of vodka and our signature Bloody Mary mix and you pile on all of your favorite toppings for only ten bucks.

Hungry? Chow down on a few brunch classics, like a Bacon, Egg and Cheese Sandwich or Breakfast Skillet, in addition to our full MOTOR menu.

Summer on the MOTOR Patio

Nestled right along the Hank Aaron Trail, MOTOR offers some of the best views of downtown Milwaukee and the Menomonee River from our riverside patio. Enjoy our comfortable lounge seating and fire pits to keep you warm on those chilly nights, while sipping on a tasty summer cocktail.
