Montana is Capitol Hill’s designated western-themed bar. It’s exactly what you’d expect from your favourite hole-in-the-wall saloon. It’s dark and cozy, with stickers, graffiti and photos of past patrons covering the walls. The bar serves cocktails on tap (the Moscow Mule is particularly delicious) and if you get hungry, the bar allows you to bring food in from the Malaysian take-out restaurant next door.

Hours: 4 to 2 am
1506 East Olive Way

When it comes to imaginative cocktails, Tavern Law is the place to be. The bartenders are next-level talented – simply tell them what type of drink you’re in the mood for, and they’ll mix you a unique concoction that perfectly fits your preference. If their sophisticated, old-school vibe isn’t cool enough for you, they also have a secret speakeasy upstairs called Needle & Thread.

Hours: Sunday to Thursday, 5 pm to 12 am; Friday and Saturday, 5 pm to 2 am
1406 12th Avenue

The divey spot is perfect for lazy days. Try a gin and tonic and give their pinball machines a whirl. Chill out with a bowl of free peanuts and enjoy the relaxed vibes of the place.
