Events at MOTOR®

Every visit to MOTOR® is an event, but some visits are more eventful. Especially when you take advantage of our regular – but far from ordinary – events like Bike Nights, Brew Master Dinners, Mother’s Day Brunch, and more.

    In addition to all the smoking BBQ, MOTOR will sizzle with the best in true American blues music from nationally known musicians – with no cover charge! Call (414) 287-2778 to make your reservation.

    It’s a time for making resolutions, and in 2017, your friends at the Harley-Davidson Museum are making it easier to resolve to ride more! Join us at MOTOR® Bar & Restaurant for a chance to reconnect with friends and fellow riders as we all pledge to log more miles in the saddle. Live music by the Matt “MF” Tyner Duo, from The Carpetbaggers, covering songs from the Delta blues, rockabilly, honky tonk and roots rock.  In addition to MOTOR food and drink specials you’ve come to love (did someone say $2 brews with your MOTOR Bike Night koozie?), we’ll have special prizes for those iron butts who keep the odometer spinning. And it wouldn’t be Bike Night without raffles for unique Harley-Davidson merchandise.

Live music by the Zach Pietrini band; nominated two years running for Best Band in Milwaukee (2014-2015, 88Nine Radio Milwaukee).  Zach Pietrini is rooted in brutally honest americana, and delivers instantly familiar tavern tunes while connecting with people through the beauty of story and song.
