BOZEMAN, Mont. - The annual Best of Bozeman list is published each year by the Bozone Entertainment and Events Calendar. It highlights outstanding local businesses and several Bozeman businesses made the list -- including bars and restaurants, salons and even a motor sports store.
Montana Aleworks received seven nods, including best restaurant. Montana Aleworks manager Dawn Brown says the success is because of their customers and community outreach.
"Supporting Montana. Supporting local beers, local ranchers, being as much part of the community as possible," said Brown.
Brown says it's important to the business to keep local products in their restaurant. "It's a really big part of what we do here. It's key for our business. It's awesome."
Plonk restaurant and wine bar in downtown Bozeman won best cocktails and ladies' night out.
Ben Burda says downtown shops are thriving and business is looking up.
"It is so good to see new restaurants, Cooper next door, 14 North going in down the street. It's exciting to see the development continuing," said Burda.
