You should have seen Whitefish in the seventies. It was funky town, baby. Disco fever was sweeping across the nation, and not even this small town, home to loggers and railroad workers, was immune: Montana’s first discotheque opened right here in Stumptown. The last vestiges of the disco daze have faded, but Whitefish’s nightlife is vibrant as ever.

Maybe you start your evening up on Big Mountain at the Bierstube, a classic après watering hole, after a full day of powder skiing. Spiff up for dinner in the mountain village at Cafe Kandahar, which offers “thoughtfully constructed cuisine,” or head downtown to Tupelo Grille, serving up Southern-influenced fine dining. For fresh fish, try longtime favorite Wasabi Sushi Bar or bold newcomer Indah Sushi. After dinner, a cocktail, perhaps? Latitude 48’s Red Room Basement Bar mixes drinks both classic and creative, and Spotted Bear Spirits is Whitefish’s very own micro-distillery. For local brews, fill up a pint at Bonsai Brewing or the Great Northern Brewery—both award-winning, homegrown breweries. Where to next? Gallery openings and theatre productions and live music, oh my! See who’s playing at The Remington, Casey’s Whitefish, or the Firebrand Lounge. It’s not all folk and bluegrass here in Northwest Montana. Maybe, just maybe, there’ll be some disco.
