It's time for another round of new businesses opening their doors in Bozeman. We are all about supporting local around here so it is always exciting to see new businesses coming to town!
We are pretty darn excited about this one! Walking into this adorable new Bozeman candy shop brings instant happiness. You'll find unique candies, chocolate plus a soda fountain with ice cream. They host small parties, perfect for the kiddos and our personal favorite thing they offer...build a bar. You can choose toppings and fillings and create your own custom candy bar. What a great gift for someone (or yourself!)

This new market/deli sits right in the heart of Bozeman. At the corner of Mendenhall and Rouse, previously Service Electric, right across from the Bozeman Taproom. They will feature dry-cured meats, fresh seafood and in the deli will serve up sandwiches, soups and salads plus beer and wine. They plan on having outdoor seating in the summer which is awesome because we all know how much Bozemanites love dining al fresca (probably because we are stuck inside for so many months of the year!). The team is made up of previous owners of Montana Fish Co, Artisan Charcuterie and Savory Olive so you know this place is going to be good!

This adorable little coffee shop came in quietly to Bozeman and is tucked next to the Western Cafe right on Main Street. They serve delicious Puerto Rican coffee and do some good at the same time. They make an effort to personally meet and visit the family farmers who grow and roast the coffee and prioritize fair wage and environmental impact. They strive to use natural and organic ingredients for the food they serve and the atmosphere is just all around awesome here.

Bozeman’s newest addition downtown, just off of Main Street. This store has unique, handcrafted gifts. They focus on gorgeous pottery but have so much more than that. Lamps, jewelry, prints, frames, candles. Such a cool space. They have been open for a couple of months but their official grand opening is this weekend, January 26th - 27th so make sure to stop by!

This opened quietly in the fall and quickly gained popularity. The idea behind this sandwich shop is to offer a lunch spot with a mix of grab and go options as well as made to order hot sandwiches. Many sauces are made in-house and they try to source locally when possible. They offer a variety of salads, a few soup options and breakfast sandwiches are coming soon. They are located on the corner of Rouse and Main previously occupied by Rockford Coffee. Make this your next lunch spot, you won't be disappointed!

Okay, we're pretty sure we aren't the only ones who are super excited for The Ramen House to open! It's something very new to Bozeman and knowing it's coming from the owners of Bisl, it's going to be good. They will feature ramen dishes with pork, seafood and vegetarian options with a focus on locally sourced ingredients. We also love that they are straying away from downtown Bozeman and will be located in the old Rocky Mountain Seafood building. Even though we love downtown, It's nice to see things spreading out a bit. They are set to open this month!

This new business has been getting a lot of hype these past couple of weeks, and for good reason! As Bozeman's newest music venue, we all eagerly awaited the reconstruction process to see how it was going to turn out. It did not disappoint! The neon sign and marquee are fantastic and the two levels inside are situated perfectly for live music. There is a bar on each level and there's not a bad seat in the house for watching a show.
Have you been missing the Thai Basil food truck? This fall they sold their truck so you might still see that around town, but it wasn't Thai Basil. They've just announced they will be opening in a new location soon! Rather than a truck, they will now be off of Oak Street where the Corner Bakery Cafe was previously. If you have been missing their spring rolls and pad thai, you won't have to wait much longer!

This isn't a new gym to Bozeman, but they are expanding with a brand new building. If you have driven past the Cannery District lately you will have noticed their building going up. Epic is a drop-in fitness studio offering indoor cycling, yoga, BodyPump and other group exercise classes. Their new space will be bigger with even more opportunities and classes.

This modern diner has been open for a few months and features delicious breakfast and lunch options with great local ingredients. The husband-wife team are both chef and farmer, a beautiful combination for a restaurant. They are located just off of Main Street and have a great space that includes a rooftop garden/seating area that we cannot wait to take advantage of this summer!
