Milwaukee Elite Event: Beer and Bites at 414 Bar + Kitchen

On Thursday, February 13th, Yelp Elites were invited to check out new local spot, 414 Bar + Kitchen! The restaurant is located inside of the beautiful Cambria Hotel Milwaukee Downtown. Beers and bites were had, hotel rooms were toured, and DJ’d music was enjoyed.

Upon arrival, guests checked in and had their pick of Yelp swag. Better yet, they filled out a raffle ticket entering the giveaway for a future staycation and dinner for two at the hotel! The raffle box was packed full, that’s for sure. Cambria Hotel beer steins for all too – how cool! Elites took their drink tickets to the bar to enjoy craft beers on tap and renowned wines poured by the friendly staff. 

Bring on the eats! A buffet sprawled the food station and was stacked with all the deliciousness that 414 Bar + Kitchen has to offer. Head Chef, Chaislyn, spoiled guests with smothered angus beer sliders (hello short rib!), fresh turkey avocado sandwiches, sea salt pretzels with caramelized onion and IPA cheddar fondue, and even a build-your-own poutine bar. Attendees went wild stacking beer battered fries, local cheese curds, sautéed crimini mushroom, duck confit gravy, and applewood bacon. Oh, and let’s not forget dessert. The display of chocolate chip bread pudding bites quickly emptied. Warm croissant bites, with vanilla custard, chocolate chips, and creamy whiskey sauce for the win!

As everyone was enjoying their bites and sips, DJ Josh was on deck with beats for the night. Not only did Complete Weddings + Events provide the music, but a fun photo booth as well. Plenty of little costume options to throw on and snap some pics. Printable images were fun take home items for all.

The lovely Cambria hotel staff also offered tours of their rooms to guests mid-evening. Though this was an optional portion of the night, many were more than excited to explore. One Elite calling the hotel rooms “amazing,” and others highly impressed with the BlueTooth mirrors!

A big thank you to Cambria Hotel Milwaukee, 414 Bar + Kitchen, and their incredible teams for the amazing service and phenomenal food. The night was fabulous from start to finish and Yelpers cannot wait to come back. Relive the experience by reading what Yelp Elites had to say and viewing the professional photos by Devan Shepherd
