Cocktail Lounge • Midwest Eats • Live Music


The Lakely is a Cocktail Lounge and Midwestern hub for live music and entertainment. A place to gather, hang, and absorb the culture. A place to feel at home whether you’re a local, a traveler, or something in between.

The Lakely boasts a locally-sourced, pub-style menu. Behind the bar we feature a cleverly curated list of craft cocktails and local brews on tap and in bottles.  We serve casual Midwest modern shareable comfort foods, including our famous Koldtbord.

Evenings are reserved for our signature stage hosting local and touring jazz and other live music, as well as Open Mic Nights, Trivia Nights, and more. Our generous courtyard patio has outdoor lounge seating, high-top tables, two fire pits, a yard game lawn, and more.


As an organization, Pablo Group, the management company behind The Oxbow Hotel and The Lakely, seeks to provide value to our community through Experiences, Entrepreneurship, Urban Living, and Real Estate. The Covid-19 Pandemic and its aftermath offered an invaluable perspective to review and evaluate the state of those endeavors. Each pillar has been uniquely impacted since the onset of the pandemic.

Pablo Group’s Experiences pillar is a collection of hotels, restaurants, coffee shops, and bars throughout Eau Claire. As we reflected on the compensation model, we came to the conclusion that we can and will do better. Since implementation in June 2021, every employee within Pablo Group is making a livable wage and eligible for 401k, and those working more than 20 hours per week are offered benefits, including healthcare and paid parental leave. Our prices are inclusive of our pay structure and benefits.

The hospitality and service industries are particularly susceptible to income instability. Our pay and benefit structure aims to help reduce the economic exposure and risk to those workers. It is Pablo Group’s hope that our new structure improves the wage stability and creates better working conditions for employees throughout our organization.
