This is definitely the Hot spot in Helena, Montana. They have a cool sports bar atmosphere with lots of room. Food is very good and good size portions. Price point is $9 to $14 per item and well worth it. The bar has a decent selection of spirits and the prices are very good. Service is awesome so our waitress was tipped well. This place was so good we went here twice during our stay. Expect a wait to get in, this is a popular spot.

Had a great experience at Windbag Saloon! The drink specials are quite unbelievable. I had a $5 Moscow mule that was absolutely delicious. Then during happy hour I was informed all pints of draft beer are only $2.50...unheard of. Nick the bartender was very kind and provided excellent service. Would recommend this place to anyone! Thanks

Great food and service. The location is right off the walking mall and in a prime location to explore the Queen City of the Rockies. The beer and spirits selection is fantastic with a lot of local specialties available.

Our History

Built in 1882 and listed in the national register of historical places, this "Italiante" style building is part of St. Louis Block in downtown Helena, MT. This location has traditionally been a focal point of night life in the area. Prior to The Windbag Saloon, which opened in 1977, establishments such as, Burlesque Hall, Movie Theatre, and a Bowling Alley called this place home.ย 
We are a full bar, with pub style American food. We have recently renovated to provide a more modern and comfortable environment for our customers. If you're in the mood for great service and a little history of downtown Helena, we are the place to go! Brunch is served on Saturday and Sunday!ย
