Sam’s Place Jazz Café opened to the public in February, close to the Bader Philanthropies building in the Harambee neighborhood of Milwaukee.
Bader Philanthropies moved to its Harambee spot from its prior headquarters in Milwaukee’s Third Ward in 2018, as part of a commitment to a revitalization of the neighborhood. Sam’s Place Jazz Café is the latest in a series of moves to that end and it has opened with assistance from Bader Philanthropies. The nonprofit has deep ties to the local Jewish community.
Sam’s Place Jazz Café, 3338 N. Martin Luther King Jr. Dr., Milwaukee, is open 7 a.m.–4 p.m. Tuesday – Sunday, with live entertainment from 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Call 414-837-512 or visit SamsPlaceJazz.com. Sam’s Place Jazz Café is not certified kosher.
