Best Bar

James Bar

Readers' Pick

This one’s a first for the swanky digs on Alder. And well deserved. James is well-rounded with great food, great service, and, most importantly, a stellar drink
selection. The crowds have stayed consistent since the place opened in late 2007, and new faces show up all the time to sip Grey Goose martinis or top-shelf scotch beneath blown-up photos of Janis Joplin, Willie Nelson, and Keith Richards. Those who gather in the dim light of James’ antler chandelier come from all walks—dressed-up urbanites to dressed-down college students. It seems fitting that Missoula’s latest “Best Bar” winner puts off a come-one, come-all vibe. James Bar: 127 W. Alder; 721-8158
