Neighborhood - Historic Third Ward

Welcome to the Historic Third Ward!


Just three blocks south of downtown  Milwaukee, the Historic Third Ward is known as “Milwaukee’s Arts and  Fashion District” and offers the city’s most dynamic array of  restaurants, spas, theaters, galleries and unique shopping, all in a  historic warehouse setting. The neighborhood is also the home to the  award-winning Third Ward Riverwalk and the Milwaukee Public Market.


From its early beginnings to today's community, enhanced by  its historic ambiance and significant architecture, the Historic Third Ward has  experienced a renaissance as a revitalized mixed-use neighborhood.  Here you will find the highest concentration  of art galleries in Milwaukee, award-winning  restaurants, unique specialty stores, architects, advertising agencies, graphic  designers, artists, the Broadway  Theatre Center,  the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design as well as condominiums, office  buildings, and industrial space.
