The Space

Vista is located in Downtown Milwaukee on Old World Third Street. Closeby are downtown hotspots such as the Fiserv Forum, the UWM Panther Arena, as well as many popular restaurants, bars, and hotels.


Deer Camp is on our first floor, also owned by Hackbarth Hospitality, and available for rent. The second and third floors are Vista's main event spaces. 

With a capacity of 175 for sit down service and 225 for cocktail service, Vista's flexible spaces can host any event.


Weddings, corporate events, retreats, or birthday parties, whatever your needs, our highly trained and experienced event team will guide you through the entire planning process.
