A native daughter's favorite places to get a drink (with a little photographic corroboration thrown in for fun)
  1. The Sip 'n Dip, Great Falls
    577481 4e1ecc3d cd3f 4f88 80da bce032b89ac6
    On weekend nights there's a mermaid in the pool.
  2. The New Atlas, Columbus
    577491 eaa497cc 1fc4 469f bacc 02dc44a1430a
    The New Atlas doubles as a taxidermy museum, emphasis on freaks of nature.
  3. The Road Kill, McLeod
    577501 183cabff ae44 464f aadd 3f496e78f19f
    In the middle of nowhere. Bring a DD.
  4. The Murray, Livingston
    577511 6431757f 7bf4 4a3b 8caa b502e7328b37
    Hometown classic.
  5. The M and M, Butte
    577521 ae500d5b 7c61 4612 8e02 80b2b259a23e
    Jack Kerouac fell in love with the place in 1970 because it was full of characters- "gamblers, whores, miners, Indians." I love the place for the bartender with hydrocephalus, who pours a great drink and makes a mean pork chop sandwich.
  6. The Old Saloon, Emigrant
    578151 2de33541 18a9 4839 9c94 d7c27c1f1124
    This place is best mid-summer, after a float down the Yellowstone.
  7. Jester's in Helena
    It's a total shitshow AND they have killer live music.
