About Engine Company No. 3

Make your event a truly unique experience with a piece of Milwaukee history in our beautifully renovated Cream City brick firehouse. Whether you are looking for a venue for a business meeting, holiday party, wedding reception, rehearsal dinner or birthday party, we can accommodate your special event! Serving La Merenda’s seasonal, farm-to-table menu, we are known best for our family style tapas dinners and cocktail style parties. We also offer daytime family style brunches at both locations. Engine Company No. 3 closes to the public at 2pm each day, so all private evening events are able to utilize the entire building. There are two floors of dining options, plus a brand new patio that may be used as additional space for cocktails and appetizers (weather permitting). The first floor and the second floor both have full bars. Please note: our second floor is only accessible via stairs.
