Oh the Sip ‘N Dip. The only place in Montana where you can go enjoy a large fishbowl cocktail while watching mermaids swim behind the bar as you watch from your tiki themed booth while listening to Piano Pat play some Johnny Cash. I have been this diamond in the rough a few times since thanks to a couple weddings and other shenanigans that have taken me to Great Falls and it never fails to amuse me.
While on our way to Whitefish to ski, we stopped in Great Falls. It was Valentine’s Day and we decided that the best way to spend it would be at the Sip ‘N Dip. The place is famous. It has made the top 10 of GQ’s best bars in a America. Piano Pat is a living legend who is pushing 80 and still singing, CBS even did a story on her.
You kind of have to go if you are in Great Falls on a Friday or Saturday night. The bar is located on the second floor of a hotel and the mermaid swim in the pool with windows behind the bar. The more you tip them, the more tricks they do. Robin and I managed to finish a delicious fish bowl all by ourselves. These are bigger than your head. It’s such a funny place and I love checking it out every chance I get. You should too.
