Emeralds Bar & Lounge
Location: 801 E. Hadley Street, Milwaukee



Male/ female
Bar/ dance club


Emeralds Bar and Lounge appears to have been open only very briefly in 1997. We have found a single advertisement in a single issue of In Step magazine (in May 1997). We will be researching the dates this bar was listed in the media bar Guides to try to narrow the timeline.

Any additional information is available from anyone willing to contribute it.
