"There isn’t anything wrong with some of Milwaukee’s more relaxed open mic nights, but Up & Under Pub has remained the city’s favorite by putting on an engaging show. Every Monday, the Up & Under stage welcomes local performers looking for an audience. The house band keeps things moving in between performances, in addition to accompanying participants. The bar itself is well stocked, with more than 20 beers on tap, and seating is available, at least when the open mic sign-up begins at 9 p.m." by Emily Patti,Shepherd Express


"With free admission, the Up & Under Pub starts its karaoke night at about 9:30 on Wednesday and the fun runs until closing time. They offer $3 "oil cans" of Foster's (sure to lubricate the vocal chords of potential crooners) and cheap Cherry Bombs (sure to obliterate their inhibitions)." by OnMilwaukee.com Staff Writer
