“Entertain something different.” That’s the goal—and the catch-phrase—of Denizen MKE, a new Milwaukee venue slated to start hosting events in October.

Denizen MKE will “give couples an authentic, stress-free day,” says co-owner Amber Bricco. This unique indoor/outdoor venue is women- and LGBTQ-owned and has a capacity of up to 150 guests. Denizen will offer full planning options as well as day-of setup and cleanup. Couples can choose décor items, tableware, ceremony installations and more from one of Denizen’s five collections: the Nightingale, the Creative, the Timeless, the Free Spirit and the Woodland.

From black, wooden-beaded chandeliers to a woodland accent wall, this venue will “give a bold statement while giving a neutral backdrop for couples to customize,” Bricco says. The space will have a patio and lounge with an outdoor setting large enough to host ceremonies and cocktail hours.

Located across the street from Washington Park in the Martin Drive neighborhood and eight minutes from downtown, photo ops abound. The park has a wildflower garden, lagoon, bridges and a bandshell that, according to Bricco, “mimics the art deco architecture found in the venue.”

Denizen has a list of preferred vendors and will allow outside vendors starting in 2024. @denizenmke
