Best Bar For Last Call

As the night winds down, the best bars for last call beckon with warmth and camaraderie. Known affectionately as “The Five,” The Five O’Clock Club draws crowds for its late-night charm, welcoming atmosphere, and memorable last-call gatherings that often turn into cherished memories. Located in downtown Eau Claire is the Wigwam Tavern, a cozy retreat for night owls seeking a laid-back atmosphere and friendly faces during those final moments of the evening. Not far away you’ll find Scooter’s, a local favorite for its welcoming vibe, affordable drinks, and lively atmosphere that keeps the party going until the early hours of the morning. —Nicole Lincoln
