Best Bar For Talkin'

1st Place: The Joynt
2nd Place: The Fire House
3rd Place: The Livery

Have any of you heard of this place, The Joynt (322 Water St.)? It’s great, so full of character and history … Seriously, giving The Joynt more awards is like talking about how much Wisconsin loves the Packers. They’re great; we get it (they’ve won this category every year since the poll’s inception). But as far as hangout bars go, it is the tops. The Fire House (202 Gibson St., Eau Claire) and its dream-like beer selection also provides a great atmosphere for conversation, while The Livery (316 Wisconsin St., Eau Claire) in the trendy North Barstow area allows patrons to chew the rag in a building from old town Eau Claire. You can almost smell the horses that used to be housed there. —Eric Rasmussen
