Did Chicago tear down its Athletic Club Game room? No. Von Trier is a landmark. The suburbs have new construction sport trendy and contemporary bars. Keep Milwaukee's history on the corner.

I have lived in Milwaukee for more than 38 years. Von Trier's has always been a wonderful place to take out-of-town guests to, go for snacks and a beer after a movie, and more recently as a great live music venue. We need to preserve this Milwaukee gem. It would be sad if it was erased from our landscape. if Von Trier's is transformed into a mid century upscale cocktail lounge, I would no longer be a patron. I also believe it will not be able to attract enough new customers to make it a profitable business.

I went to Milwaukee for the first time in 2014. Today I came back and found that Karl Ratzsch's (which I never made it to) had closed and Von Trier (which I dragged myself out to again because it's so great) was changing beyond recognition. Stop breaking my heart, Milwaukee!

It will be a tragedy to lose the last iconic German inspired tavern on the East Side. We do not need more ho hum glitz. Apparently, staring too long at bank accounts ruins vision! Maybe you already lost your soul and won't regret it, but I guarantee that the rest of us will. I predict you will be selling the place at a loss within five years.

Please Donny change a thing. This bar is classic and one of my favorite bars in the US. It's a work of art.

History should be preserved, not torn down.

Von Trier is unique to Milwaukee... an affordable neighborhood German bar and biergarten... the only one on the east side. It's an east side staple, I'd rather not have another cocktail bar... those are a dime a dozen. I love the history of the building and it's architecture interior and exterior. I won't be going to this new cocktail bar if it becomes official.
