Our Gaming Heritage

Welcome to the Oak & Shield Gaming Pub, where Gaming is literally our middle name (I’ve always wanted to say that).  The Oak & Shield is part of the Board Game Barrister® family, Milwaukee’s Local Game Store since 2005 – we know our board games. The Oak & Shield’s other parent is 42 Lounge, Milwaukee’s first gaming nightclub – so we also know our console games.  Together, we have hundreds of games in our library, and many different types of console game systems, including: Xbox One, Xbox 360, Nintendo Switch, Nintendo Wii U, and PS4.

 Playing games at the pub – how does it work?

When you visit the Oak & Shield, you should definitely play a game. Wander over to the library for a board game, ask for a recommendation, or ask for a controller to your favourite available console system and we’ll load a video game for you. Some of our premium games do have a small charge, but many games are completely free – all we ask is that each person orders a beverage or an appetizer approximately once an hour, and tips their server or bartender fairly.

Because that’s how the magic that is the Oak & Shield happens – together.
