Welcome to One Legged Magpie!

Mike and I started Magpie almost 2 years ago. We offer a guest experience that transcends a traditional bar, cultivating community through peerless food and drinks, supporting local growers through seasonal menus, showcasing artists and creating a small town gathering space with a big city mission of quality and inclusion.

We landed in Red Lodge because of our love of the outdoors, whether it's skiing, hiking or biking, we are all in. We are open 5 days a week 5PM-close, allowing our staff to enjoy this beautiful place we call home. We are nestled in the beautiful Beartooth Mountains, surrounded by incredible hiking and biking trails, it's an easy day trip into Yellowstone or spend the day hiking with wild horses in the Bighorn Canyon. The ski hill, Red Lodge Mountain is 7 miles away, and there are endless nordic and backcountry trails to hit!

As we approach our two year mark, we want to elevate our program.
