Burrito Xpress

While its name has changed from El Patio to Burrito Xpress, this Mexican bar and restaurant still serves up fantastic strawberry, watermelon, peach, or lime margaritas either on the rocks or blended. Burrito Xpress is a comfy place to lounge before hitting the "dancier" bars. Chill out with a drink and chips with salsa in this relaxed atmosphere or try one of their delicious burritos.

The Grand Illusion

This college crowd hangout is known for their specialty drink – the Delusion – the contents of which are unknown to all but the bartenders. It's blue and fruity – that's all you really need to know.

The Joynt

Best Of

The Joynt is an Eau Claire institution with walls lined with pictures of blues/jazz/folk musicians that played there, art by Robert Crumb, tons of historic beer cans, and the infamous neon "No Light Beer" sign behind the bar. Considered one of the best talking bars in town with one of the best jukeboxes, this is one of the locals' favorite spots for sure. The Joynt also has pool, darts, and pinball. Their happy hour is a local fave from 5:00 - 7:00pm every day with eight taps and 15 specialty beers to choose from.

Mona Lisa's

Best Of

The dining menu at this Eau Claire original is known for its constant rotation, and what's available at the bar is no different. Mona's takes pride in the fact that its 14 taps are always specialties and are always rotating; the same goes for the wine list, which offers more than 20 options sold by the glass. The items that don't change are the famous Mona Margaritas, espresso martinis, Lisa's seasonal mezcal cocktail, and house-made infusions of fruit and herbs. The Mediterranean bistro vibe continues on the outdoor patio (with a fireplace), and the party room is suitable for 99 people.

She-Nannigans & Lucky's

Best Of

"You've got the best of both worlds," a long-time bartender said, referring to the sports bar vibe of Lucky's (mostly playing rock and country music) and the dance club tiki bar vibe of She-Nans (pop). Known for one of the best dance floors in town and speedy service, She-Nans also has a huge outdoor patio, nightly specials, free popcorn, and karaoke on Tuesdays. They have a myriad of games from pool, darts, and arcade, to touch-screen, beer pong (Thursdays), and bean bags. She-Nans has six taps, while Lucky's has a dozen. Between them both, they have a couple specialty beers. According to our 2015 reader poll, She-Nannigans ranks among the best places to dance in the Valley.
