Mexican Kitchen & Bar

La Dama Mexican Kitchen and Bar offers authentic Mexican cooking with a modern twist!  Using all of the freshest ingredients available, the focus of our food is inspired by the kitchens and markets of Mexico City, Puebla and Oaxaca. Enjoy our laid back atmosphere with a thoughtfully created craft cocktail or a glass of one of our many Spanish wines – or be adventurous and dive into our vast list of tequilas and mezcals by trying a flight!

Authentic, Modern, Mexican!

Dine indoors in our bustling Cantina or dine outdoors within our beautiful screened-in patio! Located just south of downtown Milwaukee, in the historic Walker’s Point neighborhood, we look forward to sharing this modern take on traditional Mexican food with you!
