Best Place for Live Music

Since 2018, the Pablo Center at the Confluence (128 Graham Ave., Eau Claire) has been the large venue that Eau Claire needed. Its two modern auditoriums host live music of all kinds, as well as many other performances and events throughout the year. In the summers, Phoenix Park (330 Riverfront Terrace, Eau Claire) hosts live bands every Thursday night through the Sounds Like Summer Concert Series, as well as live music during the farmers market most weeks. The Metro (201 E. Lake St., Eau Claire) provides a vibrant space for live music downtown, as well as room for weddings and other events. – Briana Novacek
