Best Bar For Outdoor/League Sports (volleyball, softball, etc.)

With eight months of winter to stare at every year, the Valley is hungry for outdoor fun when summer comes. All three of these places offer bright, shiny, memorable options for folks of all skill levels. Wagner’s Lanes & The Complexx (2159 Brackett Ave., Eau Claire) tops our list, with kubb, sand volleyball, and 68,000 square feet of fun no one in the Valley should miss. Loopy’s (10691 County Highway X, Chippewa Falls) jumps into second place, with gorgeous indoor sports facilities, tubes, kayaks, and shuttles. The Depot (222 E. Madison St., Eau Claire) stops in at third. This volleyball-focused satellite of The Wigwam Tavern is an always hopping and enthusiastic place on the edge of downtown Eau Claire. – Cullen Ryan
