Those Montana moments are all about sucking the marrow out of life, and as long summer days start to shorten and fade into fall, that means soaking up every last bit of outside time before ‘tis the season...to hit the slopes. Seek out some of these outdoor dining and drinking spaces, and enjoy the view along with craft brews and cocktails, plus unforgettable Montana gourmet that hits the spot. You’ll find everything from chic dive bars to high-reaching craft breweries, all with a little al fresco spice.
Crystal Bar Sparkles
The Crystal Bar glitters under the stars from its vividly colored rooftop bar overlooking the Bridgers. This spot seems unassuming as you approach from Main Street, a brick front with historic trim all that catches the eye under a stark black awning. You may find live music to dance to, or just quality brews to enjoy with new friends.

A rotating beer selection that’s out of this world perfectly compliments a rooftop patio that leaves you open to the sky at Bozeman Taproom. You’ll find a selection of beer from Bozeman and Montana breweries, as well as craft brews from around the world and simple gourmet bites to keep you fueled. But the star of the show is the rooftop, with twinkle lights and a rustic vibe to help you relax.
Bridger Brewing Brews Up The Views
The upstairs patio at Bridger Brewing might as well be all the way on the roof with its birds-eye view perfect for people watching near the MSU campus. This upper mezzanine is quintessential outdoor dining, with iron deck furniture and bright umbrellas to pair with gluten reduced beer and pizza you’ll be drooling over as soon as you walk through the door.
Sidewinders American Grill Winds You Up To Outdoor Views
The second-story deck at Sidewinders brings you outdoor dining with a side of killer drinks that help you soak up some rays. Rough river rock and hewn wood accents strike a mountain pose to create the ambiance you’ll relish in this bastion of classic Americana. The food will slay you while you kick back on the rooftop.
Okay, okay, these might not be rooftops per se, but these two patios deserve a mention if enjoying warm weather is the goal here.

Lockhorn Cider Has The Outdoors On Lock
Even as the evenings get a little chill, the patio’s epic fireplace keeps things cozy at Lockhorn Cider Co. Flames keep things flirty, and live music amps the ambiance while you sip on something dry, sour or sweet and nibble from cheese plates and a selection of truffles that will keep your taste buds entertained.
