On Monday, B and I embarked on a thorough tour of downtown Missoula’s bar scene.Our tour included: The Depot, Al & Vic’s, James Bar, Charley B’s, Plonk, and the Red Room. Our winner for the best bar in Missoula? (Note that we are New Yorkers with a penchant for cocktails, so that may skew the results a bit.)
Plonk. The ambiance was fantastic, and more impressive were the outstanding cocktails. I ended up sticking with the same cucumber and cilantro concoction for my two drinks, savoring every sip.
Coming in at a close second: James Bar, which was featuring $5 martini night — which even extended to my favorite French Kiss martini. Can’t beat the prices in good ol’ Montana.
