What’s in a name: According to general manager Dave Jenks, a Still Room was a place in medieval castles where medicines were prepared, beer was brewed and wine was made. When the Broadway Bar & Grill closed for a remodel this spring, the proprietors decided they needed a new name to fit the upgrade. Jenks also spent months implementing a new cocktail program to spiff up the bar offerings, and the name reflects the focus on “making some nifty, unique cocktails.”
Why you’re there: For a drink, obviously. But really for the pool. The Still Room is the perfect summertime hangout — there’s a large yard with lots of outdoor seating, strung lights to illuminate the ambiance, and oh yeah: If you spend $10 in the bar or restaurant, you get full use of the pool and hot tub. What’s better than chilling poolside with your favorite drink in hand? Not much, that’s what.
What are you drinking? That depends on what day you show up. The Still Room has a great weekday specials menu that shouldn’t be neglected. Cocktail fans should go on Thursdays, when all Montana Distillery drinks are just $3. Craft beer enthusiasts shouldn’t miss Mondays, when microbrews are $2 all night.
Where to find it: The Still Room is located at 1609 West Broadway St.
