Burn Box

The Burn Box at the Rialto is now open from 5pm to close every Thursday, Friday and Saturday*, as well as on show nights – NO TICKET REQUIRED!


We're switching things up with a new summer happy hour featuring $2 PBRs and Montucky Coldsnacks, $4 Drafts Beers, $4 House Wines, and $1 off all Well Drinks from 5-7 PM on Thursday, Fridays, Saturdays, and all show nights. Enjoy Bozeman's best happy hour view at the only second-story bar overlooking Main Street. And just a warning – while you may come for the happy hour deals you may also be tempted to stay as the night turns into karaoke, live music, open mic comedy, or whatever else we have up our sleeves.

*Private Event closures may apply. Stay up to date by following our Burn Box calendar on Facebook.
