Best Bar for Talkin'

Conversations flow with all the fun and fresh beers on tap at The Brewing Projekt (1807 N. Oxford Ave., Eau Claire). The rooftop bar is perfect for celebrating even the little things, and they have fire pits outdoors to keep you warm year-round. The Joynt (322 Water St., Eau Claire) hosts history in every cup, perfect for letting loose and catching up with friends. In third place, our readers were divided: Cowboy Jack’s (1432 Front Porch Place, Altoona) and Dive (inside the Lismore Hotel, 333 Gibson St., Eau Claire) are both fantastic bars with beautiful views – indoor and outdoor. Head over to both and decide where you stand. –Kelly Carlson
