Kochanski’s Concertina Beer Hall is located in Milwaukee’s Southside neighborhood, Burnham Park. Milwaukee was once home to dozens of polka bars and dance halls, but very few remain. Kochanski’s stands among the last of these. In 2007, owner Andy Kochanski purchased the 1900 building which housed, “The Concertina Bar” for a few decades prior. Kochanski’s intentions have always been to keep the polka roots and the 1900 character of the building preserved.


Over the past decade “The Concertina Bar” has evolved into more than just a polka bar. It is one of Milwaukee’s most beloved music venues. Hosting international, national and local acts. In addition, it is home to Milwaukee’s largest beer garden and offers a selection of Polish beers that can’t be found anywhere in the state. You won’t find a pool table here, but you will find a one of a kind Bonzini foosball table.


We hope you visit us soon. We’re proud to have been serving Milwaukee for over a decade and look forward to many more to come!
