Although the south Milwaukee neighborhood of Bay View has one of the city's stronger representations of GLBT residents, it doesn't actually have any gay bars - most of those are located just a short drive north in Walker's Point. However, Bay View does have its share of quirky, offbeat, and very gay-friendly cafes, restaurants, and lounges, with a particular retro-inviting highlight being At Random (2501 S. Delaware Ave., 414-481-8030). This slightly off-the-beaten-path lounge specializes in foofy, old-school, tropical cocktails, including more than a few with ice cream in them. The dark lounge with kitschy furnishings (including creepy clown paintings) is a big part of the appeal - if John Waters filmed his movies in Milwaukee, he'd likely shoot a few scenes at At Random.
