About Who’s On Third

Who’s On Third is a staple of 3rd Street La Crosse, WI, having opened under the current name in 1998. Who’s On Third is located in the historic Atkinson Building at 126 3rd St. N, La Crosse, WI which was originally built in 1883. The building also houses the current Digger’s Sting Bar & Restaurant next door which has been around for over 50 years.

The name “Who’s On Third” is a play on words from the “Who’s on First?” comedy routine made famous by American comedy duo Abbott and Costello. Various pieces of history and images paying homage to this sketch can still be seen throughout the bar.

Current ownership has been operating Who’s On Third since April 2021, introducing fresh updates and improvements to the interior and product offerings. As you’ll notice in the logo, on the sign, and behind the bar when you visit, Who’s On Third is known for our fishbowl cocktail drinks, offering a unique experience unlike any other bar on 3rd Street.

While comparable in size to many of the other establishments in the area, Who’s On Third has a unique layout making it perfect for live music and special events. Come join us for karaoke every Thursday or check out our events schedule for upcoming live music and shows. We have a large dance floor with a disco ball! If you prefer to sit and enjoy the experience, our bar is equipped with low bar seats and we have high-top tables throughout the bar for larger groups to hang out.

Who’s On Third is great for anyone (must be 21+ for entry) and welcomes everyone from local college kids, parents, event-goers, or anyone looking for a great atmosphere to enjoy their favorite beverage. Our goal is to offer a fun, safe & welcoming, entertaining, and memorable atmosphere for all.
