The Space

Birch is a rustic modern venue in the heart of East Town Wauwatosa. 


With 6,000 sq. ft. of indoor/outdoor space, there are many areas for guests to gather. Host your event inside, outside, or a little of both. 

The highlight is our expansive patio garden lined with string bulbs. Use this space for your ceremony, cocktail hour, or even dine al fresco.

Inside features an intimate ballroom with cream city brick, a full-sized bar, and floor to ceiling windows overlooking our gardens.

Birch is adjacent to Camp Tosa, also owned by Hackbarth Hospitality. A great spot to continue your afterparty. 


Weddings, corporate events, retreats, or birthday parties - whatever your needs, our highly trained and experienced event team will guide you through the entire planning process.

Inside, our U-shaped ballroom includes modern rustic decor, a full-sized bar, and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking our patio. If you plan for most of your festivities to be held on our patio, our indoor space makes a perfect 'Plan B' if the weather is poor.
