With longer days, a steady wave of festival announcements, and the Brewers season starting in just a few days, it’s beginning to feel a lot like spring in Milwaukee…even if the weather is crummy. The season technically started a week ago, but something was missing. That’s no longer the case: Nite Owl (830 E. Layton Ave., 414-483-2524) officially opened for the 2024 season starting at 11 a.m. today.

Today, the beloved drive-in and timeless airport-adjacent haunt ended its hiatus that spanned much of fall and the entirety of winter. We drove by the business this morning and confirmed today was indeed the opening day for the South Side mainstay that’s been in business for 75-plus years. Rejoice, Milwaukee. Spring is really here now that Nite Owl is back in business!
