Last month, we told you about Promises, a new live music venue and neighborhood tavern opening at the corner of 6th Street and National Avenue. The new Walker’s Point bar (located at 538 W. National Ave.) that’s owned and operated by longtime friends and Platinum Boys bandmates Casey Hughes and Joey Turbo quietly had its soft opening this past Friday and Saturday.

Prior to Promises’ first concert—scheduled to take place on Monday, July 25—and its official opening day on Thursday, July 28, Milwaukee Record was graciously invited to come in and check out the place. It doesn’t disappoint! There are two stages, pull tabs and a pool table, pinball and a TMNT arcade cabinet, a nice patio, a fully-stocked bar, sports on TV, and a great blend of yard sale finds and commissioned art that combine to make up its interior decor. There are good vibes aplenty and there’s no bullshit allowed.

Once it officially opens for business this Thursday, hours will be 4 p.m. to close Monday through Friday and noon to close on Saturday and Sunday. Be sure to check out Promises soon. As you wait for it to open, check out 19 photos we took of Promises.
