The Baxter Hotel Lives: Baxter Wine Bar, Bozeman
Coming off of an "emergency" chain restaurant dinner at Ted's Montana Grill, we were delighted to find the Baxter Hotel lobby full of life tonight with Bozeman's new Baxter Wine Bar now open. The soaring, carved-wood bar in the towering lobby is the perfect setting for a hand-picked Walla-Walla Syrah or a Napa or Columbia Cabernet. There are few places where anyone can just wander into a place and sit in a lobby of travertine and on leather chairs and have a Sommelier guide you through a hand picked wine list. The Baxter Wine Bar is just such a place. We are lucky to have it. You should be so lucky to occupy a stool there. Congratulations, John, on your new place.
