The north end of downtown Missoula used to be home to numerous gritty bars serving the railroad population. In 2007, MMW took some of the gritty aesthetic and stories from the past and incorporated them into James Bar. A concrete panel façade with windows emulating steel warehouse windows are accented with steel channels. Quotes from Hunter S. Thompson and Jimmy Buffett are sandblasted onto panels at the front and rear entrances. The interiors are warm and sexy, offering a variety of seating options, depending on one’s mood.

Selecting an architect

follow these steps:
  • Consider selecting an architect as early as possible. Architects can help you define your project in every respect and may do site studies, assist in securing planning and zoning approvals, and provide a variety of other pre-design services.
  • To find a suitable firm talk to individuals that have a similar project and ask them if they were happy with the architect they selected. Review our featured projects to see if you are able to identify firms that match your project type and expectations. You can also consult our directory to find architects in your area.
  • Interview potential firms so you can learn how the architect’s team will approach your project. Also review projects the firm has designed that are similar in scale and type to yours.
