Looking for a watering hole in Salt Lake City? We got you covered. Up and down the Wasatch front you will find everything from fancy wine bars through divey hole in the walls. SLC has a strong craft cocktail scene, plenty of local brewers and yes, you can get a drink in Utah.

Featured bars

We’d recommend headed on down to The Gateway if you’re in the Downtown SLC area. It’s home to four different drinking spots, perfect for a mini (and responsible!) bar crawl. At The Gateway you will find:

Seabird – this locally grown craft cocktail bar concocts some of the best libations in town, which you can kick back and enjoy as the team also craft a curated soundtrack from the bars extensive vinyl library.

Punch Bowl Social – just a few steps North you will also find this boutique chain pub/eatery/entertainment spot. Grab a craft brew and kick back over some mini bowling. Menu.

Bout Time Pub N Grub. Offering the classic American sports bar experience with a range of beer on tap, plenty of screens and a menu of wings, burgers and more.

The Lounge. Attached to the Wiseguy’s comedy club is this relaxed hang out spot for food and drink.
