The View fire

The View on Lake Wissota was devastated by fire in February of 2019 and is planning a reopening event sometime later this month after nearly a year of reconstruction.

A longtime favorite Chippewa Falls bar is set to reopen almost a year after tragedy struck.

The View tavern on Lake Wissota in Chippewa Falls announced Sunday morning via Facebook it will reopen after nearly a year sometime later this month. The Facebook post simply reads, “That’s right! We hope to see you in for our Grand Reopening!”

In mid-February of 2019, the The View was shut down after a devastating fire engulfed the bar and restaurant in flames. The damage forced the business to rebuild during the past year.

An additional post was made on The View’s social media Monday requesting applications for bartenders and servers, further indicating the business is indeed planning on reopening in the next few weeks. Additional updates, including a specific reopening date, will be available in the coming weeks on The View on Lake Wissota’s Facebook page.
