Welcome to Bay View

About the Community


Bay View is one of Milwaukee’s most desirable areas. Named for its beautiful views of Lake Michigan, it’s a vibrant, eclectic community known for its thriving arts and music scene. Small, locally owned businesses, bars, and restaurants are a hallmark of the area. Bay View is characterized by a strong sense of community; residents agree that living in Bay View is less about physical location and more about having a Bay View state of mind.

Bay View’s small-town feel and plentiful parks have made it one of the city’s most desirable residential neighborhoods. At Bay View's center is a vibrant main street, Kinnickinnic Avenue, with a winding two-mile stretch of local businesses, bars and restaurants.


Bay View is the hipster hotspot of Milwaukee. Filled with unique bars and eateries, there’s no shortage of small businesses with local crowds. For down-to-earth comfort, check out Hot Head Fried Chicken and Crafty Cow, two attached restaurants serving southern-themed chicken dishes and craft beer and burgers, respectively. If you’re in need of a little more sophistication, Sabrosa Cafe and Gallery provides stunning artwork, a cozy atmosphere, and live piano every night. Need dinner after 10 PM? Goodkind has your back with a creative menu that’s offered until 1 AM.

Groups such as the Lions Club, Arts Guild, Garden and Yard Society, and Neighborhood Association are extremely popular and help to strengthen this special community. Parks in the neighborhood include South Shore Park, home of the South Shore Yacht Club and marina, a swimming beach, sports fields, and hiking trails. Humboldt Park is one of the oldest Milwaukee parks and features fishing lagoons, ice rinks, a beer garden, and the famous Chill on the Hill.
