Missoula Bars Go Head to Head in ‘Best Bar Bracket 2023′ Who WON?
Missoula is home to a fair share of bars. We pride ourselves on having an impressive "nightlife" scene in downtown Missoula. But, which bars are your favorite?
I always tend to stick to where I am comfortable in bars. I usually cling to 3 main bars to consider, before moving on to backups. It looks like most of those bars I typically consider have made it on the annual UM Barstool "Best Bar Bracket." But only 1 can come out as a winner.
2023 picks are:
- UNION CLUB
- KATIE O'KEEFE'S
- PRESS BOX
- JAMES BAR
- TOP HAT
- THOMAS MEAGHER BAR
- CRANKY SAM'S
- IRON HORSE
- MISSOULA CLUB
All 16 bars competed for votes on the UM Barstool Instagram page. With a handful of upsets in the first round. Like STOCKS narrowly beating REDS. Or Missoula Club slaying Iron Horse.
It all came down to this past weekend when the final two bars went head to head. STOCKS vs MAR BAR.
In the end, the Thomas Meagher Bar came out victorious.
We all have our favorite "watering holes." Whether it be your favorite place to meet friends, your favorite spot to grab a burger and a beer, or, your favorite place to watch the big game. For us here in Missoula, that bar is the Thomas Meagher Bar. Named after the "Irish General" and first Governor of Montana, General Thomas Meagher, this bar is not only a fun place to grab a drink and watch sports, but the food is great and so is the staff. Not to mention, "yours truly" calls a wild game of BINGO every Wednesday night. It is no wonder some may consider the "Mar Bar" to be one of the best in Montana. Barstool Sports seems to think that is true.
