Colectivo Coffee & The Back Room

We truly value the vibrancy and artistic energy that music brings to our cafes and community, which meant a partnership with the Pabst Theater Group was a natural fit.

Vibrant cafe on Milwaukee's East Side and intimate music venue (in our former roastery, operated by our friends at The Pabst Theater Group). This unique stop hosts more than 150 small-scale touring and local artists each year, gathering small crowds for a great creative experience. Adorned with string lights, hanging plants, and the smell of freshly brewed coffee, The Back Room @ Colectivo provides a perfect space for an up-close-and-personal evening with any artist, from jazz musicians to the next big thing in indie.

  1. In 1997 we converted a former auto parts store on Milwaukee's East Side into a cafe and roastery. We moved to a larger Riverwest space in 2007, leaving behind the space that would become The Back Room @ Colectivo, a music venue operated by our friends at The Pabst Theater Group.
