Paira Dice

1653 Harrison Ave

Paira Dice is the type of place you start off your night. The drinks are cheap and strong but the crowd isn't the type to get the party started. Grab a quick drink here and then head out to the real party. -Review of Paira Dice

Bluebird Bar
(406) 723-9006
1306 Grizzly Trl
Butte, MT
Bluebird Bar - Twenty dollar cover? Nope. Celebrities? None. Bluebird Bar is nowhere near the pages of Us Weekly or TMZ, but hey, beer is beer, whiskey is whiskey. A friendly neighborhood bar where you can pretty much wear whatever the hell you want. (But leave the cargo-shorts at home.)

O'Connells Pub
(406) 494-1484
3 Holiday Way
Butte, MT
O'connells Pub - Happy hour never looked so good. O'connells Pub, located at [Address] caters to an anxious after-work crowd but once the drinks start coming, the ties start getting loose.

Copper King Saloon

1000 S Montana St
Butte, MT
Copper King Saloon, located at [Address], has an atmosphere that's bordering on dive. Don't take a date there-unless she's cool as hell and is super low-maintenance-but it's a good place to chill and unwind. -Review of Copper King Saloon

3200 Dexter St

4655 Harrison Ave
Butte, MT
Miss T's - Known for its simple décor and good drinks, Miss T's is located at [Address]. Just make sure you dress up a little, as it's not quite the frat bar you're used to from college.

Stocking up your home bar

By Russ Cobbe

Last week we discussed what bartending equipment you should have in your home bar. This week we will cover the ingredients you need to complete the setup of your home bar.

Your main selection of alcohol should include 750ml bottles of the following: Gin, Vodka, Rum, Bourbon, Scotch, Tequila, Vermouth, Red and White Wine, Brandy, Port & Sherry plus whatever liqueurs are most palatable to you and your friends. The most popular liqueurs to have would be coffee, orange, irish cr�me and cr�me de cassis.

Next up would be bitters. Bitters are made from a variety of roots, barks, berries and herbs. They generally add a bit of zing to your drinks. You should have Angostura, Peychaud's, Orange and Abbotts Aged bitters.

For mixing you'll need a good variety to make a lot of different recipes. The standards include multiple bottles of Mineral water, cola, ginger ale, club soda, tonic water, lemon/lime sodas and fresh juices (orange, pineapple, lemon, lime and tomato).

Finally you will need some things to garnish the drinks to add that special touch. The essentials include cocktail onions, stuffed olives, lemons, limes, oranges, strawberries, celery stalks, Tabasco sauce, maraschino cherries, pineapple...
