To Tip, or Not to Tip? All of Your Valet Parking Questions Answered.

Valet Parking with Keehn's

Hand the keys over to Keehn’s at your next party.

Want to Give Your Guests a Dynamite First Impression?

Then have them hand over the car keys to Keehn’s. As soon as they arrive at your party – whatever the occasion – our team of distinguished, personable Valet Drivers will have them feeling like a superstar. We’ll open their door, answer any questions, and park their vehicle so they don’t have to stress about it.

Keehn's Valet Parking

We’re here to make your guests feel like superstars.

Valet parking should be that simple. However, there are a few recurring questions we get from both customers and their guests, so we thought we’d provide our 40-years’ of insight by answering a few of them…

Should I Tidy Up My Car?

Some people might tell you to tidy up your car if you’re planning to use valet – but, this is not a concern for Keehn’s. Even if a guest has a month’s worth of fast food bags piled high in the back seat, we don’t care – we’re not judging. Rather, our team is here to provide a service of convenience and luxury.

Keehn's Valet Parking

Our esteemed drivers want to make sure you’ve got everything you need for the party.

It’s more important that guests tuck away their valuables and that they’ve got items they need for the party on hand, like their cell phone, purse or wallet, admission tickets, card for the bride & groom, etc. When someone forgets something – and they do – our team has no issue running back to the car to get it.  We’ve got your back.

Should I Tip? How Much?

Tipping is never required. However, if you’re going to an event and there is a possibility for valet, it’s always polite to show respect to those who have served you with a few dollars. We recommend taking out some cash in advance.

Keehn's Valet Parking

Tipping is not required, but it is a way to show your respect for services provided.

While there is a general standard on how much to tip, keep in mind that rain and snow might be a reason to increase your generosity if and when your tipping.

When Should I Hire Valet Services?

Whenever you want to impress your guests. We’ve provided services for private birthday parties, funerals, galas, weddings, and at high-end restaurants. While our team is familiar working with dozens and dozens of venues, here are a few you might recognize…

We work with numerous Milwaukee venues, including the Milwaukee Art Museum.

Why Should I Choose Keehn’s for Valet Parking?

Yes, we’ve been in business for more than 40-years so you can trust that we know what we’re doing. And yet, the real reason to choose Keehn’s: Our Valet Drivers are committed to providing you an amazing customer service experience.

The Best Beer Destinations in Milwaukee

We have a lot of pride for our city…and the delicious beer that’s brewed here…

Because of this, Keehn’s is on the brink of announcing some awesome city-wide beer & transportation packages. Until then, we thought it was only fair to share some of the newest & hottest breweries, beer gardens, and taverns around so you can feel inspired to create your very own brewery tour with Keehn’s.

taylor-davidson-24494

Before you start planning your adventure, however, you need to ask yourself this very important question: What’s the top thing you look for when you’re craving a beer? For us, it’s originality, variety, flavor, and skill. Where you experience the taste of a great beer also matters. What’s unique about the venue? How was the customer service? What’s the story behind the beer?

With that, all of these qualifiers were taken into careful consideration when handpicking our favorite breweries all around the city…

summer-sunshine-alcohol-drink

#1: Downtown 

Downtown is filled with exciting new breweries! We’ve also go some historic Milwakuee venues to explore. Take for example a local favorite, Best Place Historic Pabst Brewery. Select your tap of choice and they’ll fill your pint to the brim for a historic – some might say haunted – tour.

While it’s always fun to toast Captain Pabst, make sure to get these hot spots on your brewrey tour list, too!


#2: South

There are so many southside breweries popping up these days. A brewery we particularly like is Enlightened Brewing. Beyond great beer, the set-up is just right for a warm, summer night near the Milwaukee River. There’s also a cozy taproom to sit back, relax, and sip. Side note: the two guys with beards – yah – they’re not related.

And, the list goes on, folks! Especially for those of you who like beer – a lot. Check it out.

#3  East

Looking to get traditional with your beer drinking? You’ll discover Old World beer gardens tucked away all over the city. When it’s a beautiful summer day & we’ve got a great reason to drink outside, we head to Hubbard Park Beer Garden or Estabrook Beer Garden in Shorewood. 

quentin-dr-125010-1

We also can’t go without noting Lakefront Brewery. For starters, they’re consistently winning awards for their brews nationwide. And, let’s not forget about their infamous brewery tour. They’ve become a city staple. But, if you’re looking to try some new flavors, like the up-and-coming sours, look no further than Like Minds Brewing Company. 

IMG_6501

Like Minds Brewing

Like Minds is quaint, and bright, and bursting with great-tasting, barrel-aged sours. They also offer Crowlers – yes, Crowlers with a “C” – which is one of the best inventions, ever. While it would be great to detail every Eastside brewery, we’ll let you figure out what flavors best fit your tastebuds…

Good City Brewing


#4 West

Let’s also not forget west of downtown. Dedicated fans of beer come to breweries like Big Head Brewery and Raised Grain Brewing Co. for a welcoming sampling room and patio and – well – good beer!    lance-anderson-245146


Now that we’ve done the homework for you…

Get out there and grab a pint or two! Use our recommendations as an excuse to visit a Milwaukee neighborhood you don’t frequent often enough. Or explore a brewery you didn’t know existed right on your block. 

caleb-rogers-122437

Either way, we’re ready with our fleet of spacious, clean and affordable vehicles to get you around town safely – check out what vehicle best meets your adventure needs HERE.

3. Get Your Beer On.

Have you checked out Milwaukee’s traditional beer gardens, like: Estabrook, Humboldt Park, and Hoyt Park? They offer excellent craft beer options in an atmosphere you can kick back and relax. Or, let us take you on a 4-hour brewery tour to one of the many new breweries in SE Wisconsin, like: Westallion, Likeminds, or Third Space Brewing.

4. Pump Up the Jams.

Is live music more your thing? This year’s Pitchfork Music Festival, Summerfest, and Lollapalooza have the best lineup yet. Want some Americana music instead? Let over 200 artists at Mile of Music in Appleton, WI be the soundtrack to your wild party.

5. All Bets Are Off.

Wisconsin’s top casinos are more than just a place to play some Blackjack. Milwaukee’s very own Potowatomi is ranked the state’s “best”, thanks to their recent expansion & live music every weekend. Or, head to Ho Chunk in Baraboo or Green Bay to try your luck.

6. It’s Game Day. Go Wild.

Perhaps your party crew consists of shouting #OnWisconsin – in that case, you must experience a Badger game at Camp Randall. You also can’t go wrong with tailgating or Packer tickets at the stadium Wisconsinites are most proud of: Lambeau Field.
