The new location includes three outdoor patios with fire pits, seating, and music to create a homey experience.

Commons 1882 was originally located in downtown Billings and recently relocated, keeping the original name and adding and Martini and Wine Bar.

"We originally got our name downtown and the building we were in was built in 1882," General Manager Anthony McCoy said. "The Commons. Back in that time in history, it was a place everyone would go to gather and socialize. So that’s how we came up with the name, it was a gathering place for everybody to come, and get together and have food, drinks and just kind of be together."
