Milwaukee Pritzlaff Building Event Venue


Constructed in 1875 and recently renovated, the Pritzlaff has been transformed into a breath taking example of not only what was, but what can be.

Here, 26,000 square feet of floor space is surrounded by Victorian era arched windows and gritty cream city brick. Above, you’ll find industrial age beamed ceilings curiously supported by carved wood beams.

Seating: 800 guests

At the Pritzlaff, we don’t just embrace contradictions, we give them a big hug.

Events can range from formal to funky. Ice sculptures peacefully coexist with candle flame, flowers emerge from concrete and steel while echoes of electronica sound just as at home here as a Bach sonata.

Parties. Weddings. Business meetings. Fashion shows. Galas. If these walls could talk… well, let’s just say, there would be some good stories.


The Pritzlaff property is conveniently divided into four separate spaces. Address 325 can host or seat up to 315 guests while address 333 can accommodate up to 600. New opened, the 143 address can accommodate 150 seated. Combined, the Pritzlaff can welcome up to 1200 while showing off her cream city brick. Depending on the size or function of your event, you may choose to utilize one room or move your guests between the spaces. Say dinner in one and dancing in the other. Or a ceremony in the Galleria and reception in address 325. 

In the end it’s all about creating a memorable experience. And your Pritzlaff event will be one they won’t soon forget.
