Cooter Brown's: One of the Newer Local Bars
Due to a fire, Cooter Brown's is no longer in business. It has not been decided if they will redo the inside and reopen, or not.
Cooter Brown’s, housed in a converted brick garage, has been around for a number of years now, but it is still one of the newer nightspots in town. I have never been in Cooter Browns, but my husband goes there ever so often to play pool. During the summer months you will often find live bands or DJs here, as well as sometimes in the winter. My husband tells me that these bands seem to draw a younger crowd. When the Thunder Motor Cycle Rally came to town Cooter Brown’s is where hundreds of the riders gathered on the Saturday evening when they were in town. I am not sure how many tourists actually find this establishment, as the front door does not face the street, but is in an alley off of a parking lot behind 1134 13th St. In 2007 Cooter Browns expanded, by moving into an out of business restaurant that they were back to back with. They have now opened their own restaurant called, CB’s Sports Bar and Grill, which serves lunch and dinner daily. Although Cooter Brown’s is an adult spot, children are welcome in the grill. The entrance to the grill sits on 13th Street. (see photo 2) Cooter Browns and CB’s have a happy hour, with $1.00 off drinks from 5:00 to 7:00. The listed website is for the Bar and Grill.
Dress Code: Casual everyday wear.

Silver Dollar Bar: A Long Time Popular Bar
The Silver Dollar is another bar that sometimes has live entertainment, especially in the summer. A variety of styles such as rock, blues, and country can be found here. This is also another one of the bars in town that has pool tables available. You are less likely to find cowboys, but you will find all different types of folks hanging out around this bar including a lot of locals, who not only enjoy their night out here, but also the Silver Dollar hamburgers. It was the rough bar when we moved to town years ago, but it is a lot more respectable now.
Dress Code: Casual everyday wear is always appropriate at the Silver Dollar.

Cassies Supper Club: For That Western Experience
Cassie’s has been a local favorite since 1922, especially on weekends. This has the old small town western atmosphere and includes a menu featuring steak and seafood, as well as dancing--usually live country western music on weekends, and more often in the summer. At Cassie's you will find the dance floor filled with real and wannabe cowboys and cowgirls, as well as locals just out for a good time. You will also find pool tables available at Cassie’s. For two years in a row country music star Vince Gill and his wife Amy Grant have made an impromptu gig with the house band West as part of their yearly summer vacation in the Cody area.
Dress Code: Wear casual clothing---if you bought that souvenir cowboy hat, shirt, or boots, Cassies is the place to wear them. But most folks will just have on typical casual clothing.

several: An evening out in Cody
One of the things we enjoyed about our stay in Cody was that the town has a proper downtown area, with a selection of restaurants and bars to enjoy when the sun goes down. After our meal in La Comidas Mexican restaurant we had a couple of good beers in the Silver Dollar Saloon on Sheridan Avenue, and a final night-cap in the bar at the Irma Hotel, the Silver Saddle Lounge. We enjoyed a visit to a late-opening art gallery, Big Horn Prints, which had a great show by local photographers, and we had a go ourselves at capturing shots of the many neon signs.
