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.

  • Cooking & Cocktail Class

    Wednesday, October 14, 2015
    6:00 p.m. (Doors open at 5:30 p.m.)

    One of the best things about autumn in Wisconsin is cozying up to some hot dishes and cool drinks. Why not head down to MOTOR® Bar & Restaurant for an opportunity to fold both into your kitchen repertoire? At the next Cooking & Cocktail Class, Chef Josh will demonstrate how to prepare tasty dishes like butternut squash ravioli and stout beer pecan pie that will be served with refreshing, hand-crafted cocktails. All participants will receive Chef Josh’s recipes to take home and share with friends and family. $40 for members, $45 for non-members. Reservations are required. No refunds. Call MOTOR at (414) 287-2778 to make your reservation.

    Nobody does orange and black better than Harley-Davidson. And for our Halloween celebration, the Harley-Davidson Museum is inviting all bikers to come down to one of Milwaukee’s most popular haunts, MOTOR® Bar & Restaurant. Rock out to live music on the spooktacular Museum campus as MOTOR pairs food and drink specials that celebrate the season.
