Guide to Bozeman’s Best Happy Hours

Guide to Bozeman’s Best Happy Hours

The days are getting longer meaning rather than heading home at the end of the workday to honker down from the cold, everyone is more likely to participate in happy hour!  Luckily in Bozeman there are many great places to choose from and hopefully soon happy hours will start taking place on restaurant and bar patios!  Here are the top ten happy hours in Bozeman.  

14 North

While 14 North is a delicious place for dinner, don't forget about it when you are thinking about happy hour places.  There is plenty of seating in the nice bar area and they have drink specials, $1 off draft beers and small plates at great prices (we recommend the 'Merica Burger).  Happy hour is 4-6pm and late night from 9-10pm.  They also have half prices bottles of wine every Thursday and Ladies Night on Wednesdays (buy one drink, enjoy another one on the house!)

Midtown Tavern

Midtown has happy hour seven days a week from 4-6pm AND 9-10pm, PLUS $2 mystery beers every single day!  During happy hour they feature food specials like burger and beer for $11, drink specials and $1 off draft beers.

Backcountry Burger Bar

Happy hour at Backcountry Burger Bar is 7 days a week from 3-6pm and it's a good one!  $2 Dollars off draft beer, cider and wine, 1/2 off starters (the fried cheese curds are awesome!) and 25% off reserve beers.  Make sure to stick around here for dinner because their burgers are not to be missed! 

R Bar

A longtime Bozeman favorite!  Happy hour at the R Bar is Monday through Friday from 4-7pm.  They have $3 draft beers, $5 wine, $5 mules and martinis plus $12 appetizer platter.  Happy hour bonus if you are sitting on their patio on a nice summer evening watching the tourists walk by.  


This is the best place for a girls night happy hour or start to a date night!  Their back patio might be our favorite in all of Bozeman.  Plonk has happy hour from 3-5pm and late night from 10:30-12pm with drink and food specials.

Bar IX

Easily one of the best happy hours in town.  Bar IX has it everyday from 2-7pm and it's 2-4-1 (two for one drinks).  You can't beat that.

Copper Whiskey Bar

Happy hour at Copper means $5 cocktails and appetizer specials.  Fried pickles anyone?  Happy hour can't go wrong with those!  If it's nice out, try to grab one of the few tables outside.

Downtown isn't the only place for happy hour!!  Feast on the south end of town is not only a beautiful place for dinner, they have some great happy hour deals.  "Feast at 5" is Tuesday through Sunday, from 5-6pm with $1 off oysters, tap beer and wine.  They also do 25% off all beer on Wednesdays and 25% off bottles of wine on Sundays.  We suggest going for happy hour, but definitely stay for dinner as well!

Blacksmith Italian

Another fantastic restaurant in the same area as Feast.  Blacksmith Italian has a happy hour for the whole family...Spaghetti and Meatball Mondays!  You get spaghetti and meatballs plus a beer for $12!  They also do 1/2 price wine of Wednesdays.  This is some of the best Italian in Bozeman, with homemade noodles, you gotta love that!

Red Chair

Spending happy hour on Red Chair's patio checking out the Bridger views is a summertime staple.  Happy hour is different each day of the week around here!  Monday is Burger and Beer night with specials, Tuesday is Fiesta Night with $5 margaritas, Wednesday is Humpday Happy Hour all day long, Thursday is Westside Beer night with beer deals and promos, Friday is $4 Titos, Saturday and Sunday have brunch happy hour deals.  Basically, whatever day you go to Red Chair you'll find a happy hour!
