The Mint Bar

What is the Spirit of Wyoming?

The Spirit of Wyoming lives in every ponderosa pine, alpine lake, worn-out saddle and secret canyon in Sheridan. This is a place where cowboys convene over craft beer and coffee, where pronghorn spring over canvasses colored with Indian paintbrush, and where the majestic peaks of northern Wyoming stand forever proud. Fabled cowboys once kicked up their boots at the Sheridan Inn, while modern mavericks revel in Old West charm at Sheridan’s bistros, cafes and brewpubs. Summer in Sheridan is especially spectacular – wildflowers bloom on the mountain through June, sunsets light up the sky in a thousand shades of red, orange and purple, and wildlife dance to the beat of the songbirds’ tune.

Outdoor opportunities are near limitless when you’re roaming the open range on horseback, backpacking uncharted territory or fishing pristine mountain waters. Sheridan County is quickly becoming a climbing and mountain bike mecca, and ATV and ORV enthusiasts have hundreds of miles of trails to explore. Of course, Sheridan is also a sportsman’s paradise, with some of the finest hunting in the nation. Whatever your passion, Sheridan is the trailhead to Wyoming’s boldest outdoor experiences.

Sheridan is the beating heart of the Bighorn arts scene. From the stages of the WYO Theater, Carriage House at the Trail End State Historic Site, and the Whitney Center for the Arts, to the history housed in the Brinton Museum, to the statues lining the streets of downtown, arts and culture are alive and thriving throughout Sheridan. SAGE Community Arts proudly exhibits local artists, while the Jentel and Ucross artist residency programs introduce artists from across the globe to Wyoming’s charms.

Sheridan’s calendar features epic summer events like the WYO Rodeo, Celebrate the Arts, Big Horn Wild and Scenic Trail Run, and the Dead Swede Hundo, while the Suds N’ Spurs Brewfest, Don King Days, Biketoberfest, WYO Film Festival, round out the year. So, plan to stop by, and stay a while. “Howdy, stranger,” isn’t just a greeting around here – it’s also an invitation.

There's still time to submit your photo to this year's SAGE Community ARTS Photography Exhibition. This year's theme is the Spirit of Wyoming - share with us what that means to you, and help celebrate Wyoming art.

Mint Mentions

Everybody's Talking About the Mint!

“Horses have been known to drink at the bar, and even today it’s the domain of pranksters, where your camera might be stolen and returned 15 minutes later, complete with anonymous butt images – yep, that sort of place.”

St. George News

The Mint is featured in “Whiskey Before Breakfast,” an oil painting by Michael Blessing, featured in an exhibit entitled “The Many Facets of the West,” on display at the St. George Art Museum in St. George, Utah.

Travel and Leisure, March 2015

“The Mint Saloon, which opened in 1907, was forced to rebrand because of Prohibition, becoming Mint Cigar Company and Soda Shop. However, that didn’t stop ranchers and cowboys, many of whom would actually ride their horse into the saloon, to imbibe stronger stuff in the back. Try The Ditch, a take on whiskey with water.”

North American Hunter – Fall 2014

“…stay in Sheridan and belly up to the Mint Bar, just like the local ranch hands have been doing since 1907.”

The Sheridan Press, May 14, 2013

“A Sheridan mainstay for more than a century, The Mint’s high profile Main Street location and name recognition make it a popular meeting place for locals and tourists alike. ‘This is everybody’s bar in Sheridan. Its been here so long that its kind of an anchor,’ says Monte Buckmaster, co-owner of the Mint Bar.”

Cowboys & Indians, June 2011

“The century-old Mint Bar in Sheridan, Wyoming , is as lively and quintessentially cowboy as the neon sign out front. Memorable both because Kenny Rogers was thrown out the front window in Wild Horses and for the distinctive bar made of gnarled pine burls, The Mint Bar is a true watering hole – no one comes here for the food.”

American Cowboy Magazine, April/May 2011

“A bronc-riding neon cowboy leads you to this burlwood den, considered by most to be the ultimate cowboy bar in the cowboy state.”

The Boston Globe, November 7, 2010

“We follow the boys to Sheridan’s Mint Bar, an old-school western classic with buck and ram heads dotting the walls, hundreds of rodeo photos, and 100n years’ worth of stories most moms will never hear.”

National Geographic, August/September 2009

“Wind down with a “ditch” (Plains-speak for whiskey and water) at the Mint Bar on Main Street; look for the massive neon cowboy and bucking horse.”

True West Magazine, January/February 2006

“Best Local Bars: The Mint Bar (obviously)”
