While enjoying a beverage at the Western Montana Fair beer garden over the weekend, a discussion came up about Missoula's 'go to' bars. You know, the bar you can go to no matter what time of day or night and you'll know people there. Like your own personal Cheers. Of course there is the "that depends" answer. Like, that depends on if I'm out for live music, out looking for friends, out looking for a sweet honey to pick up. And sure it does. For instance if I'm looking for a really good lunch and a beer, Lucky Strike all the way. Live rock, the Dark Horse. Bartenders I love and a killer juke box, Al's & Vic's. A completely memorable, insane party night with the girls, the Fox Club.

But I'm talking about that bar that you can walk into at 11 a.m. (for business of course, wink wink) or  at 1 a.m. and are guaranteed to know several people in the establishment. That would be the Silver Dollar for me. The Buck, my family bar.

What is your 'go to' bar in Western Montana?
