When you’re on vacation, you don’t need to pay attention to the clock—except when it comes to happy hour! Here are four of our favorite spots to get a hot deal on a cold drink.
Tomahawk: Indulge in a Wisconsin classic, the Old Fashioned, at Road Lake Pub & Grill in Tomahawk. They specialize in this Northwoods favorite, hand-muddling them from scratch. Best of all, the bar overlooks beautiful Road Lake, so you’re guaranteed a gorgeous view with your evening cocktail.
Minocqua: Speaking of great views, grab a drink menu and a spot on the deck of The Thirsty Whale and soak in the sounds of Lake Minocqua lapping beside you! Choose from six different varieties of wines and raise a toast to the Min-Aqua Bats, who you’ll see waterskiing by the deck on Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7pm, mid-June through August.
Rhinelander: For a truly classic Northwoods experience, you’ve gotta hit happy hour at a supper club, and it doesn’t get any more classic than The Al-Gen in Rhinelander. Their cozy cocktail lounge is a great place to relax, and while they’re known for their Old Fashioneds, the bartenders here are well-versed in all things drinkable. If you come on Sunday night, make sure you stay for the all-you-can-eat broasted chicken!
Three Lakes: If you’re looking for something a little different, check out the Black Forest Pub & Grille in Three Lakes. This friendly spot offers authentic German food, and even better yet, authentic German beers. You’ll be brimming with gemütlichkeit in no time! A game room with a pool table, darts and video games will keep the kids entertained as well.
