The Shot Bar was founded March 1, 2012 by University of Missouri graduates Andy O’Neill, Ryan Walsh and Ben Monsees. The original idea was formulated October 23, 2010 with a little inspiration from one of the most memorable days in Mizzou athletics; an upset of the No. 1 team in the nation for a homecoming victory over the Oklahoma Sooners. For the next year and a half, the owners worked tirelessly to craft a bar that would cater to Mizzou students, grads and Columbia locals alike with a unique concept. Thus, the Shot Bar was born! It creatively mixes a variety of over 100 shots with the atmosphere, fun and fluidity of the downtown-Columbia nightlife.
Whether The Shot Bar is your destination on a night out or just a stop along the way, there’s always something happening here. We are a full-service bar that specializes in shots and has a continuously expanding menu. Offerings include domestic and international draft and bottled beer, along with our extensive and exotic shot menu.
