The Best of the Chippewa Valley 2022

Best New Bar

As the Chippewa Valley continues to try and get back to a sense of normalcy, new bars are sprouting up around the area to make the path a bit easier to navigate. River Jams Bar (2940 109th St., Chippewa Falls) is making itself known as a great destination for live music, earning it the top spot in this year’s vote. It might be cheesy to say, but 3rd & Vine (1929 Third St., Eau Claire) is already one of Eau Claire’s favorite craft beer destinations, as readers voted them as the second-best new bar. In third place is Somewhere Pub (1485 Front Porch Place, Altoona), a popular Caribbean-themed bar with a reputation for excellent drinks, service, and atmosphere.–Parker Reed
