Here are your picks for Best Downtown Bar.

1. Bodega Brew Pub

The race for Best Downtown Bar in La Crosse County saw the Bodega and Dublin Square repeating for 1st and 2nd place, respectively, separated by just 90 votes, an even closer finish than their contest for Best Bar: Overall. Del’s Bar supplanted The Starlite Lounge for 3rd. 

The iconic Bodega Brew Pub remains La Crosse County’s most popular bar (if by a slightly slimmer margin). Known for its extensive beer list, great lunch counter, and prime location at the corner of 4th and Pearl Streets, the Bodega continues to be welcoming downtown La Crosse destination with wide appeal. Follow the Bodega on Facebook for updates on daily specials, tasting events, live music, and more.
