Spelunking Red Lion Pub and former 5 & 10 Tap

On this week's Urban Spelunking, we're on Milwaukee's East Side at Red Lion Pub, inside a striking 1890s cream city brick building.

The European soccer bar is a favorite for Tottenham Hotspur fans, and offers two levels to cheer on your favorite football teams.

Previously Brocach Irish pub, a busy Irish bar and restaurant, the building has consistently drawn a crowd of East Siders, many within walking distance.

But was was the space in its previous life? On this week's podcast we look into the history of this prominent Milwaukee building and the well loved 5 & 10 Tap, a bar and restaurant and a haunt for tannery workers.

Listen to the podcast below, and visit OnMilwaukee to read Bobby Tanzilo's complete story.
