One climbed the stairs to the second floor to see potted Palm Trees mixed with an art-deco motif, original brick walls and a two-story stage with enclosed DJ area for a setting unlike any other in Milwaukee. This place was Papagaio and remembered on the Papagaio Vintage Hoodie. Bobby Bell opened it in 1981 at 515 N. Broadway and it soon became known as a go-to bar and hotspot for music acts. Performances from acclaimed bands in the 80s like The Replacements and Hüsker Dü will be remembered for a lifetime. Wednesdays also became gay night at Papagaio, which was otherwise considered a “straight” venue, and a popular alternative to Park Avenue's Sunday gay night. Papagaio was short-lived, but it was one of the best places of Milwaukee's early 80s.
