Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery in Milwaukee will not be open for business this weekend.

The downtown eatery, located at 740 N. Plankinton Ave., is temporarily shut down due to a pest infestation.

The City of Milwaukee Health Department issued the restaurant a cease order after conducting an inspection on Thursday.

“The operator will remain temporarily closed in order to fully remediate the pest issue and upon follow-up inspection, if compliant, they will be reopened,” said Diamond Hanson, the department’s health communications officer. 

Hanson said it is unclear when the follow-up inspection would occur.

The restaurant “must eliminate all evidence of pests and any pest harborages” in order to pass the inspection and reopen, she said. 

An employee at Rock Bottom earlier today declined to comment on the matter.
