Private suite karaoke, team building bar to open in Milwaukee's Brewery District

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A new private suite karaoke and team building bar, Amped, will open in Milwaukee's Brewery District neighborhood in Summer 2022.

Amped is the latest addition to activity bars from Bars & Recreation, parent company of AXE MKE, NorthSouth Club, Splash Studio, Nine Below and Head Space Trivia.

Officials say Amped will serve as a professional meeting and team building venue during the day, and transition into a private suite karaoke bar each night.

It is a 12,000-square-foot space with a variety of different sized suites with state-of-the-art equipment, colorful furniture and décor, and karaoke machines. Customers can reserve the suites in blocks of two to three hours for their group event or karaoke party.

“No matter why you come – to host a pop-up corporate meeting, to sing your heart out campfire style with your friends, or to rock out before your favorite artist’s concert at the Fiserv – we’ll get your group amped up,” said Bars & Rec President and owner Marla Poytinger.

The new facility will house a full bar, a catering kitchen, and multiple larger event spaces to host trivia, canvas/wood painting, and hosted group "game shows" through a new umbrella organization called Team MKE.

“We’re experts in curating fun, high-quality bars, as well as facilitating Milwaukee’s most immersive entertainment activities – and team building has always been at our core. Combining karaoke and team events at Amped allows us to further deliver on all of the qualities that our customers love about Bars & Rec,” explained Poytinger.

Amped will be located at 902 W. Juneau Ave. in the main corridor of the Brewery District.
