Charlie B's


Charlie B’s has been a lunchtime staple for blue- and white-collar Missoula folk alike for years. Time seems to stop just inside that understated door, long enough to enjoy a slow pint and one of those famed Dino Cafe catfish po’ boys. By the time the sun sets, all those attorneys and journalists (yeah, that’s us) seated at the bar have morphed into pool sharks and longtime Charlie’s regulars. There’s not much difference between their faces and those immortalized in black-and-white photos along every patch of wall. Charlie’s would likely be one of Missoula’s best-kept secrets—if we weren’t all so eager to share a great thing. Charlie B’s: 428 N. Higgins, 549-3589
