A lot of history that most people don't remember.

If you've spent anytime in Bozeman, Montana, then you have either seen the iconic Rocking R Bar sign or you've stopped in for a drink. The Rocking R Bar originally opened in the late 1940s and has been a Bozeman mainstay every since. The bar has been a popular hangout of Montana State University students and Bozeman residents for generations. The R Bar has been a huge supporter of the Montana State University athletics and is proud to feature Bobcat Memorabilia throughout the Bar. 

On March 5th, 2009 a gas explosion rocked Bozeman and destroyed a whole city block, including the Rocking R Bar. The explosion garnered national headlines which featured the iconic Rocking R Bar sign laying in a pile of rubble. On July 26th, 2011 the Rocking R Bar reopened its doors with a huge celebration. The community support was overwhelming and was indicative of what this establishment has meant to the town and university students. 

Whether you are a Bozeman resident or just stopping through on your way to Yellowstone National Park, you will feel right at home at the Rocking R Bar. So swing by to see how the old melds with the new in the rebuilt bar. Chat with our friendly staff or watch the big game. We feature twenty TVs and four pool tables so you will never run out of entertainment at the Rocking R Bar. 

We hope to see you soon.
