Best Bar for Drinkin'

The atmosphere, the bartenders, the acquaintances who become friends … these are just a few great things about our readers’ perennial favorite Bar for Drinkin’, The Joynt (322 Water St., Eau Claire). The drink prices don’t hurt, either! The Fire House (202 Gibson St., Eau Claire) caters to craft beer lovers with an extensive and ever-changing tap list. (Don’t miss out on Wisconsin Thursdays, when there are special deals on local brews.) at No. 3, The Wigwam Tavern (314 E. Madison St., Eau Claire) has the feel of your grandpa’s favorite dive bar with the prices and patrons to match. — Katy Hackworthy
