The aptly named Pony Bar is described by Thrillist as follows

The Pony is the quintessential Montana bar experience: Located in an unincorporated town of about 100, it's housed in an old meeting hall, a function it still serves for anyone who wanders in, be them ranchers looking for company or curious drinkers who travel from areas like Bozeman to drink in one of the most legendary dive saloons in Montana.

Pony may be a one-horse town, but its bar is the kind of place that draws people from far and wide, a pure distillate of Montana bar life that demands a pilgrimage from any drinker worth the dirt on their boots.

The Pony Bar website says they are at the end of the road (literally) for those who come on horseback, 4-wheelers, bikes, or even by foot; but all are welcome at the best small town bar in Montana.
