Walker’s Point Venue South Second Announces Expansion Plan

A popular Milwaukee venue is adding an extensive outdoor patio space, complete with an upper balcony, outdoor bar, parking, and more.

Milwaukee, WI June 27 – Saz’s Hospitality Group is excited to announce their plans of expanding their exclusive venue, South Second, in the heart of Walker’s Point. Currently a modern and industrial venue, Saz’s plans to add a new outdoor patio with an outdoor bar and balcony overlooking the space. There will also be an additional reserved parking lot for event guests.

“We’re very excited to start this project,” partner Casey Sazama-Schneck shares. “We have seen so much potential in this space and are ready to transform it with these additions. It’s going to really elevate the event experience for our future clients and guests.”

South Second is a venue that offers flexibility based off the client’s vision, and this new addition will be no exception. The recently released renderings paint a new picture of the venue that opened in 2016 with new life and possibilities. One specific highlight is the outdoor patio can be used year-round with the ability for tenting and heaters, an attractive attribute for Wisconsin winter events. After the renovations are complete, the Walker’s Point venue will have an outdoor seated capacity of 225, and collectively for an indoor/outdoor event, the capacity increases to 300 for a cocktail reception.

South Second’s venue offers a great experience for:

• Wedding ceremonies and receptions

• Corporate gatherings, including cocktail receptions, award ceremonies, team building, RNC events, holiday parties, and more.

• Social celebrations, including birthday parties, family reunions, bridal or baby showers, celebrations of life, and more.

“We’re very committed to investing in the Walker’s Point neighborhood and look forward to transforming the current vacant lot into something special and unique. We believe in nothing but ‘The Finest’ for our guests, and 2024 holds a lot of excitement around what we have in store,” Saz’s Hospitality Group founder, Steve Sazama shares.

Groundbreaking for the project will begin late summer of 2023 with plans to be completed by 2024. The rental rates remain current, however the Saz’s team is encouraging people to book now while current rental rates remain in effect. South Second holds open tours on the following dates, June 28, July 19 and August 2, from 5-7pm, no appointment necessary.
