What is there to do in a mountain town once the sun sets and the ski lifts stop running? I recommend trying out a delicious local restaurant, then enjoying some beverages and finally, dancing the night away. Where does one go if he or she wants to cut a rug? Here is our top 10 list of best places to dance in Bozeman which crosses all kinds of genres.

  • Baxter Hotel

    Salsa Dancing – $3 – Wednesdays – 8-11pm

    Each Wednesday, the Baxter hotel ballroom hosts Salsa dancing with lessons and open dance. From 8-8:30pm is the beginner course and from 8:30-9pm is the improver lesson and from 9-11pm is open dance.

  • The Zebra

    Hip-Hop/Rap/Reggie/Electronic – Cover Varies – Thur. Fri. Sat. 10pm-2am

    The Zebra is usually the spot for the best Hip-Hop, Rap, Reggie, and Electronic music in Bozeman. The dance floor puts you right next to the performers making you feel part of the show. I would recommend earplugs for anyone wanting to protect their hearing as the shows never disappoint in being loud.

  • Mixers

    Country Music – Generally No Cover – Thu. Fri. Sat. 8pm – 2am

    Home to one of Bozeman's biggest dance floors, Mixers is a sure place to kick your boots to some good ol' country music. Don't forget to bring your cowboy hat.
