I've lived in Missoula for about two months now, and I'd like to think I've at least made a dent in the local bar scene. I can't say I've been everywhere, but I've been to a whole lot and I've gotten a feel for the town. But your favorite bar wouldn't be complete without one crucial element: the bartender!

A great bartender is key to a great bar, especially in a college town like Missoula where you're dealing with giant crowds of people every weekend. Because bartending isn't just getting you your drink - it's being efficient, it's being helpful, and it's being a fun presence.

It's a tough job, but the best bartenders make it look easy. So who's your favorite bartender in town? Nominate your favorites, I'm sure they'd love to hear they're doing a great job!
