Best Bar for Talkin'

Fancy a chat with a pal or loved one? Sip and gossip at the places that Volume One readers voted the Best Bar for Talkin’. The Brewing Projekt (1807 N. Oxford Ave., Eau Claire) has plenty of different places to hang out and chat about life – try out the rooftop patio or the taproom. The Joynt (322 Water St., Eau Claire) is a very popular place – in fact, they’ve been in the top three for this category since the beginning of our Best Of polls – for anyone and everyone to gab while sipping on a delicious beverage. Coming in third is 3rd & Vine (1929 Third St., Eau Claire), a great place where you can converse with your pals while sipping on beer and eating some cheese – as every Wisconsinite should. –Sawyer Hoff
