About Us

The Rigby was founded by three partners who wanted a venue for great local talent, spaces for private events, and a pub that served Wisconsin classics and local craft beer.  In 2011, a space in the historical district (formerly The Casbah and The Mustang) became available.  Three floors with beautiful large windows, exposed brick, and barnboard floors was the canvas for what is now The Rigby Pub, Grill and Event Space.  Since 2011, we have hosted thousands of fantastic events including weekly trivia and karaoke, drag brunch, live music, comedy, bingo, charitable events, and private parties.  In 2021, we also added a rooftop space available for more events and private parties.
