A Message from the Owner....

Was Gwan, as we say in Jamaica!

My name is Hyacinth Nembhardt and I am the owner and Managing Director at Tropic, located in downtown Milwaukee. I'm originally from the Bronx and of Canadian and Jamaican decent, the roots of my heritage inspired me to bring a taste of Jamaica to Water Street. My vision for Tropic was to fuse South Beach and Jamaica and serve authentic Jamaican bar bites, delicious Jamaican inspired cocktails, with reggae, afro beats, and R&B vibes playing in the background. 

We have an amazing team who provides excellent customer service to our patrons. Known as the "Tropic Gals" you will find them on promotional ads throughout the establishment. Once you become a regular they'll definitely not only remember your name, but your drink! I'm proud to have my daughter, Hyleah, serving as the General Manager, so when you support Tropic you are supporting a not only a woman and minority-owned business, but a family-owned business as well. 

Please be sure to check out our sister bar, Concoctions, which we plan to relaunch at 1316 E. Brady Street in June 2022. Learn more at www.concoctionsmke.com 

We appreciate the support and look forward to serving you!
