Northern Lights Saloon Polebridge Montana


In the early 1900s, resident Bill Adair opened a hotel along the North Fork of the Flathead. When Glacier National Park was established in 1910, Adair packed up his belongings and moved to the spot now known as Polebridge. 

Included in the move was the building now known as the Northern Lights Saloon.  The Northern Lights Saloon is located 1 mile from the Northwest entrance of Glacier National Park. Today the town stands as a lone outpost at the remote northwest edge and entrance to Glacier Park.  This is an excursion into the past. No cell service, no internet. Electricity is made by solar, generators, propane, or water wheel. This Saloon serves an amazing menu along with local delicious drinks, and live music.  This is a great place to visit after a day of hiking, rafting, camping, or visiting Glacier. The Mercantile Bakery is right next store. A historic bakery with many choices of huckleberry breads, cookies, and sweet rolls. A must visit as well.
