A dive bar in Montana is in the running to be crowned the best dive bar in America. Here's what you need to know about it.


I was scrolling through Facebook the other day when I came across a post shared by the Dive Bar Road Trip page. The page is currently in the middle of its 2023 March Dive-Ness Tournament, and a dive bar in Montana is included in the contest and has been moving up in the bracket.

Dive bars from all over the country are included in the competition, and one of them will be crowned America's best dive bar. Only one dive bar in Montana made the cut, and that's the Bunkhouse Bar in Toston, Montana. After two rounds of voting, Bunkhouse prevailed and moved on to the Final Pour round.

Here's a description of the contest.

This tournament is to help promote these small mom & pop bars ... not to hurt them. Please keep votes authentic.

How Does the Contest Work?

During each voting round, the Dive Bar Road Trip page shares a graphic for each bar in a head-to-head matchup. The bar that receives the most 'likes' advances to the next round. So far, Bunkhouse has been blowing away the competition.
