If you're a college student like me and you want to go out for food and drinks with your friends but your wallet isn't happy about it these downtown Missoula bars have Happy Hour deals just for you. Going to happy hour will help you save money instead of going out at night, get your buzz on and satisfy your hunger.

The Bridge's Happy hour deals goes from 3:00p.m.- 5:00p.m. 7 days a week. If you buy one slice of pizza you get glass of Coldsmoke beer or a glass of Eddy Out from  Missoula's local Kettlehouse brewery and if you buy 2 slices you can get a whole pint.

Plonk is one of my favourite bars in Missoula. I love the atmosphere it has, I feel so classy from the moment I step foot inside. If you love wine as much as I do, the 3-5 and 10:30pm- midnight daily Happy Hour at Plonk is the place to go along with their other great deals. They offer wine and spirit deals from $5- $7 and food prices ranging from $6- $12. 

Now that you've read where all the best deals in downtown Missoula are, head over to the bars and get boozy. If you're not 21 all of these places have a variety of happy hour food choices.
