“A bar as close to perfect as you’ll find!”
The Montana shaped neon sign represents a century-old experience to those who enter. A look into the right-front window shows the now extinct Audobon Big Horn Sheep. At the outside entrance lies the name of ‘James Kenney’ in tile, who bought and moved his bar here in 1908. Beyond the entrance are partitions of glass, one of which bears a bullet hole caused by a gentleman whose gun went off accidently, while checking at the door. Beyond that is the beautiful original tile floor, and to the right is the authentic stand-up bar, which came by steamboat in 1912. Bar stools have been added in these modern times. To the left/center hang the fans suspended from the original embossed tin ceilings. The men’s room still has the original marble urinal, still in use today. A 1914 double-drawer National Cash Register sits on the back bar.
