Humuhumu’s description

Foundation began as a punk bar, and around 2004 began a conversion into a punk tiki bar at the prompting of manager Don Nelson. Today the bar has left its punk roots behind, and has completed the metamorphosis into a beloved and completely punk-free tiki bar. It is chock full of tikis, many carved by local tiki artist Lake Tiki. The menu is full of traditional and modern tropical drinks, served in tiki mugs.
In 2017, a fully tikified vacation rental was added above Foundation, the Captain's Quarters

I actually spent Christmas Eve here last year. It was 0 degrees outside but it felt nice and cozy and downright tropical inside. Milwaukee was a fun town and this was the most fun part.

Drinks are good,nice selection, no wait service you got to go to bar and wait. Music very low . Bar is small , sometimes a wait.

I LOVE this place.
and for those who are looking for another option on the south side, check out Trader Nick's, run by a former bartender from Foundation.
