Eat, Drink and Play: Wisconsin Bars With More
Last Updated: 4/25/2014
As the weather warms, many Wisconsin bars offer outdoor games and activities that pair perfectly with an ice bold brew. Here’s some of our favorite “bars with more” across the state:
Horny Goat Brew Pub – Milwaukee
This Milwaukee favorite doubles as a brewery, has one heck of a Friday fish fry and offers summer volleyball leagues, beanbag tournaments, and giant Jenga games. Bonus: you never have to worry about rainy weather, their BFT (Big Fun Tent) is large enough to hold 3 volleyball courts, complete with heated sand plus an entertainment stage. Located directly on the Milwaukee River, the Hideaway even offers public boat docks for patrons. Don’t drink and drive, but definitely check out this hideaway!
Press Box – Fond Du Lac
Welcome to sports paradise! The Press Box offers volleyball (2 indoor courts + 4 outdoor courts), pool, and dart leagues nightly as well as ski-ball, horseshoe pits and shuffleboard. Watch any game, any sport, anytime with over 20 flat-screen HDTVs.
New Berlin Alehouse – New Berlin
The New Berlin Alehouse has a little bit of everything: 8 beautifully-groomed volleyball courts, a 28-lane bowling center, video games, darts and more. Throwing a party? The Alehouse has a banquet hall that seats up to 350, and a party room that serves up to 50. Throw in more than 30 beers on tap and a full menu of appetizers and entrees, and you get a must-visit Wisconsin bar.
The Bar – Oshkosh
It may have a short name, but this bar is long on activities. Four indoor volleyball courts, two outdoor volleyball courts, a 3-on-3 basketball court, two horseshoe courts, pool, darts…. Whew! We’re out of breath and that’s not even everything. An outdoor fire pit, video games and 25, yes 25 (!!) HDTVs round out an impressive lineup.
Loopy’s Grill and Saloon – Chippewa Falls
Last but not least is Loopy’s in Chippewa Falls. It has the standards – volleyball, darts, pool – but what makes it unique is inner tube, canoe, and kayak rentals. A shuttle from the bar will take you upstream where you get dropped off before lazily floating down the scenic Chippewa Falls River. Enjoy the beautiful views (and cold beers if you like) on the water, before getting out at Loopy’s backyard dock.
