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

Everybody loves to get out on the town once in a while, but to double the fun, these are your Best Bars for Outdoor and League Sports. Wagner’s Lanes and The Complexx (2159 Brackett Ave., Eau Claire) holds the top spot for the seventh consecutive time thanks in part to year-round volleyball leagues, which continue indoors in the winter. With sponsors lining up for the league, as well as a bean bag league on the side, it’s no wonder Wagner’s is a fan favorite. Perennial contender Loopy’s Saloon & Grill (10691 County Hwy. X, Chippewa Falls) brings their volleyball and beersbee tournaments to the table just upriver. With an additional dart league, there is plenty to do at Loopy’s. The Depot (222 E. Madison St., Eau Claire), part of the Wigwam just up the street, keep the community active with outdoor fun like kubb and beanbags. With any of these three, it’s impossible to go wrong as a fan of Outdoor and League Sports. –Devon Verbsky
