[06/08/19]   The Sub Pub will be closed Tuesday, June 11th due to a private event. The Pub will return to its normal hours on Wednesday, June 12th from 5pm until 9pm. Thank you for your cooperation. See you Wednesday for more summer fun!

The Candace Elise gave our Sub Pub goers a little show for opening night! It may be a tad chilly but, the PetSkull Brewing Peach Cobbler Ale, and Hard Lemonade are worth it!

Tonight is the last public night of Sub Pub for the Summer. If you stop in early at 4 PM, check out the Museum's event in conjunction with MSI from Chicago, then head up to the Roof Deck for Sub Pub at 5 PM. We will have more private events on the roof through the rest of fall, so if you want to enjoy the Roof Deck after this week for the season, contact the Museum to learn how to rent it for yourself.

Sub Pub on the Water will be canceled tonight. Stay safe.

Sub Pub will be open normal Tuesday and Thursday this week and next. This week Wednesday the Wisconsin Maritime Museum will be hosting their annual Cigar Fundraiser at Sub Pub. That means that if you have a Cigar Fundraiser ticket, you can be at Sub Pub this Wednesday. Check out the link for tickets to this great opportunity. Next week, Wednesday Sub Pub is fully rented out for a Private event, but Downtown Manitowoc is having VIP seating for Balloon Glow of Friday. It is also a fundraiser, so the 17th will be ticketed, but another great cause. See the Chamber's website for more information.

Next week our hours will be a bit different. Tuesday will be opening later, but also closing later, for the Vic Ferrari Gumby's Club for a Cure fundraiser (one of the few ticketed nights to raise money for a great cause), see our event on this page for details on how to get tickets, sales closing soon. Then Wednesday, we will be closed for a private rental. Want to rent Sub Pub all to yourself sometime, even on a night other than Tues-Thurs? Contact Mike at the Wisconsin Maritime Museum for more info on how to rent the space for your own event. [email protected]. Thursday we will be back to normal operation.

Amy Jo & The Down Glow are playing in downtown Manitowoc at tonight's Night Market 920. Stop down to see them, and grab food at the great food trucks brought in by Brennan Seehafer Productions and Grow It Forward. If you want, you can also view from Sub Pub on the Water. We have a new delivery option, Late's BBQ. They deliver now every night we are open until 8pm. Whatever you do, make sure it includes stoping downtown somewhere tonight!

A great night out at Sub Pub on the Water. The new PetSkull Brewing options are going great!

A big shout out to PetSkull Brewing and their local partners for sponsoring and installing a new 2 tap system up in Sub Pub. Wisconsin Maritime Museum CEO, Rolf Johnson, and Group Sales, Mike Johnson sample the new system. PetSkull will be providing 2 options at a time. Stop out this week and enjoy Got Coconut? Milk Stout, and a perfect summer drink, Jake's Malt Lemonade. Flavors may rotate through the summer, but you will always be able to try some great local brews.

Say Cheese! Pine River Pre-Pack, Inc. has donated 5 different cheese spreads for guests to enjoy on the roof deck. Pine River Pre-Pack recently won numerous awards at the 2018 World Championship Cheese Competition. Stop out and enjoy some samples courtesy of them.

[05/30/18]   We still plan to be up here tonight and tomorrow, even with the chance of some rain. Last year we learned, the rain doesn't always show up as bad as it was supposed to. During any brief showers, you can always duck into the upper lobby for the rain to pass.

Night one at Sub Pub has begun. Our Submarine Curator and Member Service Coordinator are excited to get out of the office after a long day. Join us, open until 9 PM.

[05/24/18]   Hungry while at Sub Pub? While you can bring in your own food, we hope that you will support our local downtown restaurants including key partners like Wrap It Up Manitowoc and Brian's Smokehouse and BBQ. We will have delivery menus from them up at Sub Pub. Looking for another of your favorite restaurants to be one of the featured restaurants? Encourage them to contact Mike at the Wisconsin Maritime Museum to learn how to become one of the featured restaurants.

[05/23/18]   Sub Pub will be opening next week. Tuesday, May 29th will be our first day. Stop out from 5-9PM. Grab a drink from the bar, and order delivery from some of our highlighted local restaurants, or bring your own food, and enjoy the sunset. Just a month away from summer solstice.
