Best Bar For Indoor Games (pool, darts, etc.)

Want fun all year round in the Chippewa Valley? Volume One Readers love to flock to Wagner’s Lanes and The Complexx (2159 Brackett Ave., Eau Claire), where in addition to 26 lanes they’ve got a full-service bar, event space, volleyball courts, bean-bags, and volley-pong. Happy Hollow Tavern (1628 N. Hillcrest Parkway, Altoona) and its 96-foot long bar comes in second, offering darts, billiards, dancing, and game day fun to spare. Vs at 44 North (1488 Front Porch Place, Altoona)  makes the list as well, with huge game-day fun, retro games, and bingo night to keep things right. –Cullen Ryan
