Detailed Information

The Rocking R Bar has been a prominent Bozeman, Montana mainstay since the late 1940s.  The iconic, red Rocking R Bar sign is a beacon in historic downtown Bozeman, and the Bar proudly serves as a popular local hangout for Montana State University students, residents, and visitors alike.

The R Bar is a backbone of the Bozeman community and a proud supporter of MSU athletics – a fact made evident by the Bobcat memorabilia sprinkled throughout its décor.  On March 5th, 2009, a gas explosion rocked Bozeman and destroyed a whole city block, including the Bar. On July 26th, 2011, the Rocking R Bar reopened its doors with a huge celebration. The community united in a show of appreciation, and the support was an overwhelming demonstration of what the establishment means to the town and its university students.

Despite its new look, the Rocking R Bar holds steadfast onto its old traditions of embracing small-town values.  Whether you are a Bozeman resident or just swinging by for lunch on your way to Yellowstone National Park, you will feel right at home at the R Bar.

The Rocking R Bar, located in historic downtown Bozeman, Montana, is an iconic symbol of Bozeman’s laidback, welcoming culture and Montana State University’s Bobcat spirit. We boast twenty TVs to ensure that you always have a prime view of the game, four pool tables for endless entertainment, dart boards and a friendly staff that will keep your thirst quenched and your belly full. During the day, the Rocking R Bar is a local’s hangout serving cold beer and delicious food from the High Country Grill.

At night, the Bar transforms into a lively hotspot featuring enticing drinks and great company. We encourage you to visit our cozy atmosphere during the chilly Montana winters and take advantage of our open-air bar and patio during the steamy summer months. We’ll save you a seat!
