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

Wagner’s Lanes and The Complexx (2159 Brackett Ave., Eau Claire) is hard to beat for outdoor sports, considering its ability to host sand volleyball year-round under an inflatable dome. They’ve got volleyball and bean bag leagues, as well as bowling (although that’s indoors). Loopy’s Saloon & Grill (10691 County Highway X, Chippewa Falls) provides a laid-back vibe with a view, a tiki bar, volleyball, darts, and pool. Heading back to Eau Claire, The Depot (Wigwam) (222 E. Madison St.) rounds out the list with summer seasons of outdoor volleyball on their sandy downtown court. –Ashly Curtis
