88Nine Radio Milwaukee reveals name and menu of new cafe

In October, 88Nine Radio Milwaukee announced a new dining concept to share their studio at Walker’s Point (220 E. Pittsburgh Ave.) – the space once occupied by Stone Creek Coffee. At a community reception held today, the station revealed more about the concept, including its name and some details on its menu.

“Deadwax” is the name chosen for the “sound café” because they refer to the establishment. Both terms are related to music, the station’s executive director, Kevin Sucher, explained via a press release, “Deadwax is a term for the space on a record after the last track and before the label,” did he declare. “It’s the space in between, which is exactly what we want this space to be for our community.”

Sucher also explained why they use “sound coffee”. This is “because the vibrations of the music and the community connection will be the soundtrack of the experience,” said Sucher. “Fueled by great food and drink, this space will help solidify Radio Milwaukee’s mission to create a more inclusive and engaged Milwaukee.”

Sound café operator Chef Chad Meier (of the old Meraki restaurant on Second Street) has created a menu that will change frequently and feature seasonal ingredients from local vendors. The café will also host pop-ups in collaboration with other chefs.

Menu items will include breakfast items like Scottish Eggs, breakfast wraps and toast; “Lunch boxes”, soups and sandwiches; and samosas, ‘things on sticks’, empanadas and pub-style pizzas from other MKE companies. Deadwax will also have a market offering take-out salads, musubi (a Japanese snack made from rice and spam), drinks and dry goods sourced locally and around the world.

The café, scheduled to open in 2022, also works with MKE Interval on the selection of coffees. Interval owner Ryan Hoban will be serving coffee from his cafe, as well as other roasters.

The $ 770,000 project includes the expansion of a 333 square foot café; complete renovation of the café and addition of a kitchen area; creation of covered outdoor seats; and installation of three garage doors along the sidewalk.

“We regard the name Deadwax as a tribute to our history,” said Sucher. “It perfectly sums up the environment we want to create – a place where you can stay as long as you want; a place where you will constantly discover something or someone new; a place fueled by great music, community, food and drink.
