German beer halls, at one time, were a staple of Milwaukee’s social life. Von Trier’s is such an establishment. News spread that it was going to remodel into a mid-century cocktail lounge and forego its German image. Immediately a collection of images was taken for a painting. After they were done and the painting drawn to canvas, the bar decided to remain a beer hall, remodeling the German interior and keeping the atmosphere. Pictured is a rendering of the original Von Trier’s, before the recent remodel. Many of the background items are now gone but the German beer hall spirit remains. They also have a great new menu!
