James Bar

Originally commissioned to build the first James Bar in 2007 Scariano Construction is proud of the relationship forged over the years with the owners. We frequently do maintenance work at James Bar and Al’s and Vic’s and we were excited to help with redesign of the James Bar in 2019. One of the initial goals was to make James Bar unlike any place in Missoula. This popular Missoula hangout boasts reclaimed wood trusses and ceilings, hardwood floors, abundant use of locally sourced fir, south facing garden windows, ceramic tile, large format vintage photos of musicians and warm, discreet uplighting. For 2020 James Bar saw a horseshoe bar design enhancing the customer experience, the use of green walls, and elevated seating.
