If you’ve been to Montana before, this bar is a can’t-miss. If you haven’t been to Montana before, this bar is still a can’t-miss. Seattle doesn’t have a gluttony of dive bars in the Capitol Hill neighborhood, so when you find one, you truly cherish it.
When you walk in you’ll be greeted by a neon sign proclaiming “Monfuckintana” which signals you’re in the right place. With Montana stuff all over the place you wonder how a this could thrive in any state outside of Montana, but that’s exactly where the beauty is. With the constant building and churning of States across America, people look at the state of Montana as a place stuck in time. That’s probably the same reason people come to this bar. It will be the same just how you left it and there is something comforting about that. The only thing that changes are the new proclamations etched into the wooden booths that line the walls.
Grab yourself an on-tap cocktail or a cheap Montucky Cold Snack and saddle up in a booth for a long night ahead. You don’t come here for the drinks. You come here to celebrate the simplicity of Montana and life in a dive bar at its purest form.
