MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Turner Hall, which sits directly across from the BMO Harris Bradley Center, suffered damage from Sunday's explosives that collapsed the Bradley Center roof.
Four windows including three large panes and a half-moon pane were cracked in the Palm Garden Restaurant as a result of the controlled blast.
The windows impacted are on the west side of the building along Vel Phillips Avenue across from the Bradley Center.
Despite the damage, the Turner Hall bar and restaurant stayed open for business Sunday.

Crews used explosives to collapse the roof of the Bradley Center into the seating bowl making it easier for workers to remove the debris. The 30-year-old arena closed in 2018 and the Bucks have moved next door to the $524 million Fiserv Forum.
“The Bradley Center roof structure removal went as planned,” said Bucks and Fiserv Forum Chief Communications Officer Barry Baum. “We are one major step closer to complete demolition.”

Work is in progress on demolishing the inside of the arena.
