Montana’s Old Saloon Has Been Serving Good Eats And Entertainment Since 1902
While we love to see new businesses opening in Montana, there’s something about those tried-and-true establishments that will always have our hearts. There’s nothing like a place with a history, especially when that place is the Old Saloon in Emigrant. Over the last century, this place has survived Prohibition, Covid, and even a fire — and we’re happy to say it’s better than ever.
It all started in 1902, when a little saloon was built in Emigrant to service the rail line passing through the Paradise Valley en route to Yellowstone.

The Old Saloon burned down in 1907, promptly being rebuilt by Abe Armstrong.
It also had to close due to Prohibition in 1920, but it opened right back up in 1962 thanks to Abe Armstrong's son, Elmer.
When you visit, check out the back bar -- it's still the original bar Abe bought in St. Louis and had hauled by steamboat up the Missouri.
In fact, there are quite a few pieces of the bar's history here.
These days, the Old Saloon is known as a local hangout and a place to visit for tasty food and great entertainment...
...and we're pleased to report that live entertainment is back in full swing this summer.
Give the saloon a call or check out their website for the current lineup.
And if you come just to eat, prepare to be pleasantly surprised.
This may be a century-old saloon, but it's no dive bar. The food menu includes burgers, steaks, salads, sandwiches, and so much more.
The Old Saloon has welcomed guests from almost every corner of the world.
That being said, it's still a place where Montanans can go and feel right at home.
