There are a lot of great bars in Montana, but there aren't too many honky-tonks with large dance floors for swing dancing. The state is full of cowboys and lovers of country music, and a good quality honky-tonk would be a welcomed addition in Big Sky Country. It's time to dust off those old boots because a new honky-tonk is opening soon in Montana. Here's what we know about it.

The Westerner Sign

If you're looking for a real honky-tonk in Montana, we've got some good news. The folks that run the Old Saloon in Paradise Valley south of Livingston are opening a "real damn honkytonk" in Gallatin Gateway later this month. The Grand Opening is scheduled for January 25-27. 2024.

What is a Honky-Tonk?

A honky-tonk is a nightclub or dance hall where country music is typically played, and they are usually found in southern states.

New Honky-Tonk Opening in Gallatin Gateway

The Westerner is located at 304 Mill Street in Gallatin Gateway right next to Stacey's Bar. Three shows are scheduled for grand opening weekend, and if you're a fan of country music and dancing, you won't want to miss it. The Westerner is a true Texas-style honkytonk right here in Montana!
