The Joynt

Eau Claire, WI

The Joynt is an Eau Claire institution with walls lined with pictures of blues/jazz/folk musicians who played there, art by Robert Crumb, tons of historic beer cans, and the infamous neon "No Light Beer" sign behind the bar. Perpetually ranked as the best bar for both talking and drinking in the annual Best of the Chippewa Valley Reader Poll, the Joynt also has one of the best jukeboxes in town, as well as pool, darts, and pinball. The happy hour is a local fave from 5-7pm every day with eight taps and 15 specialty beers to choose from.
