Top 10 New Businesses in Bozeman

Bozeman is always changing, and it can be tricky keeping up with all the new businesses opening their doors! Here is a list of 10 new businesses in Bozeman.
Cat Show Cat Cafe
This one wins for the most unique new business in Bozeman! The cat cafe concept is not new if you’ve been to L.A. or New York, and while we don’t love anything that adds to the Bozeangeles idea, we are warming up to a cat cafe. Especially one that is dedicated to finding homes for cats! The Cat Show Cat Cafe is by the same owners as the Garden Barn, which is a favorite. It is located in The Market building in Ferguson Farms and just opened its doors. They have partnered with the Heart of the Valley as a foster home of sorts for hard to adopt cats. You pay a small fee of $7 and you can be in the cafe working, doing schoolwork, or just hanging out with the kitties. Grab lunch or a coffee at Foxtrot and spend the afternoon at the Cat Show. The fee goes toward cat care. They have reservations available on their website and there are gift card options, puuurfect for the cat lovers in your life (we couldn’t help it!)
Mavens Market Wine Bar
Mavens Market has been around for a couple of years, but its wine bar just opened and could not be any cuter! Tucked in the back of the market you can pull up a stool at the bar or find a seat on one of the cozy chairs or couches. It has a great vibe with fun decor and good wine. Their charcuteries options are fantastic, as you would expect from Mavens. What’s nice is you can build your own from their selections of cheese, meats, breads, and more. Currently, the wine bar is open Tues - Sat from 4 pm-8 pm making it the perfect happy hour spot. Bonus? Grab some gelato on your way out!
Wild West Local Foods
Located across from the Taproom, Wild West Local Foods is the place to go for fresh seafood, local meats, and a lot more. It’s hard to find fresh seafood in Bozeman, so we are excited about this one. They have a nice patio for when summer comes around.
Zsa-Zsa’s is a new jewelry store in downtown Bozeman near the Ellen and Cactus Records. They offer unique hand-crafted jewelry and one of the largest amber selections in Bozeman. They also have silk scarves and turquoise jewelry. If you haven’t finished your Christmas shopping, make a stop at Zsa-Zsa’s!
Whiskey & Lace
This adorable new boutique in downtown Bozeman is located where the Bent Lens once was. They specialize in up-to-date fashions at an affordable price, which is a welcome concept in downtown Bozeman. They are a little boho mixed with a little western and a great place to find a floppy hat if you are new to Bozeman and want to fit in (just kidding! But, there does seem to be a lot of floppy hats around town).
This is the newest addition in the Barn District off of Huffine Lane. They feature fire-roasted rotisserie chicken and a huge selection of Montana craft beer. They are also vinyl lovers (before it became trendy) so Hop Lounge has two turntables with a sound system to keep the tunes spinning. Of course, the chicken is good, but the french fries are some of the best in town with a fun selection of dipping sauces.
Fielding’s, Tune Up and Sky Shed in the Armory
Probably the most talked-about new addition to Bozeman is the Armory Hotel. It’s hard to miss if you are in downtown Bozeman. In the Armory are three new restaurants and bars. Fielding’s is named after Fred Fielding Willson, the original architect who built the building. It is a restaurant inside the Armory featuring American food sourced through local ranchers and farmers. Tune Up is a basement bar that will have live music post-Covid! We are excited about another music venue in Bozeman. Sky Shed was popular from the moment they opened. It’s a rooftop bar with huge views of Bozeman and the mountains. Along with cocktails they have small plates and a “cool kids” vibe.
We love when our local people take an idea and run with it, and that’s just what Shannon at Gastro Gnome did! Shannon saw a need for delicious, healthy backpacking meals and used her background in hospitality and culinary arts to make it happen. Gastro Gnome is now selling their backpacking meals both online and at their retail space at 96 Laura Louise Lane Unit 11. Check them out!
Ghost Town Coffee Roasters New Location
One of Bozeman’s best coffee roasters has opened a new downtown location, and we are pretty excited about it! The new downtown Ghost Town Coffee Roasters is located in the Black Olive building, just two blocks from Main Street. The new location is bright & colorful with big windows; it looks like the perfect place to settle in for a few hours!
Rib and Chop House
Raise your hand if you ever made the drive to Livingston just to eat at the Rib and Chop House. Well, now you don’t have to because they just opened their first Bozeman location and we are so excited about it! The Bozeman Rib and Chop House is located where Johnny Carino’s used to be (near Target and Costco). We tested it out, and it’s just as good as the original. m
