Venue Spotlight: The Atrium
The Atrium is one of the Milwaukee area’s newest, most unique venues. Located in the suburb of Shorewood, the neighborhood is excited to have an new space to host seminars, awards ceremonies, community events, and charity events.
The treatment of the space is very modern but it also has an amazing rooftop courtyard which creates a great balance of trendy style and natural beauty. The space is run by event industry veterans who know exactly how to guide a company and remove any stress involved in the the process of putting on an event.
Josh Erickson and Zach Dewitt are the faces of this new space. The Atrium is part of the Sound by Design and Camp Bar universe, and Josh has been on the Sound by Design team for a long time.
He is the perfect choice to lead this new venture. Zach was once part of the Sound by Design team as well, then he migrated to managing the first Camp Bar, and has now graduated to The Atrium.
This is a team that knows exactly what it’s doing and has its finger on the pulse of what today’s couples are looking for. We had a chance to sit down with Josh and Zach to learn more about each of them and this unique space that they run.

How would you describe the style of the space?
Blended styles, industrial chic, with warmth from the brick and wood elements.
We love the great chandelier!
The upstairs garden space offers a very different style element from the main space and adds variety to the guest experience. Because of this diverse ambiance this space can be the perfect choice for many different styles and sizes of corporate parties.
