Another hot day in Missoula, and we're busy making plans to cool down. Follow our advice: start the weekend. ASAP.
This week: The Union Club
Atmosphere: The Union is a true blue collar bar, obviously. Local steelworkers, carpenters and other labor union members belly up for a beer on hot, slow afternoons. Younger folk occasionally stop by for a game of ping-pong or cornhole—a popular pastime here where players toss bean bags at a horizontal target. But at night, the place transforms into a frenzy of live music and swing dancing. Few places in town offer as lively a time for no cover. Just remember, the bar is cash-only.
