Saz's Partners with UWM for Jan Serr Studio

Saz’s Hospitality Group is excited to announce its partnership with The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Peck School of the Arts as exclusive caterer and operator for Jan Serr Studio, an incredible new private events and performance space on Milwaukee’s trendy and historic East Side, opening Fall 2018!

Located on the top floor of the UWM Kenilworth Square East Building above the original 1914 Ford Model T plant, this industrial-meets-modern event space offers guests floor-to-ceiling panoramic views of Lake Michigan and the Downtown Milwaukee skyline. If you’re looking to make a bold statement and really impress your guests, this is the place!

This exclusive partnership provides guests who book an event at Jan Serr Studio with exceptional event planning, extensive client support from day one, and all-inclusive menu planning and day-of service from Saz’s Catering.

The sixth floor event space, complete with an open floor plan and outdoor covered balcony, offers room for up to 450 guests, making it the perfect location for large weddings, company soirées, epic launch parties, sophisticated galas and more!

Named after UWM Department of Art & Design alumna and visual artist Jan Serr, Jan Serr Studio is one of the most versatile spaces we’ve seen in Milwaukee with unlimited creative potential! We’re so pleased to partner with the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee to offer an incredible level of service and attention to detail to all clients booking events in the space.
