MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee's Riverwest Public House Cooperative is asking for the public's help as they face increasing financial pressure amid the pandemic.

The Riverwest institution has launched a GoFundMe campaign for donations, with a $10,000 goal. As of Monday evening, they have already raised $2,600 of that goal.

The bar, restaurant and music venue remains closed due to COVID-19 concerns, but the owner hopes to reopen soon.

"We are looking forward to the day when our home reopens, and we are able to hug each other and enjoy some Riverwest Stein from the tap," writes GoFundMe organizer Nina Horvath.

"In the meantime, you are in our hearts, and we hope you are staying safe and hydrated. And we are asking for your help in ensuring the reopening of our doors," according to Horvath.
