Salt Lake is home to some great eateries, but it also must be noted that it’s also home to some of the best places to wet your whistle. That’s why we’ve compiled our top 5 places to grab a drink in Salt Lake City.
- Bar X – Although Bar X originally opened in 1933 Modern Family star, Ty Burrell and his brother, gave this SLC gem a major renovation. Keeping the exterior look of the original bar you don’t expect to get hand crafted cocktails made with fresh squeezed juices inside. Bar X is definitely on the top of the list for one of the best places to grab a drink in Salt Lake.
- Beerhive – When Beerhive opened it brought with it an East Coast styled lounge that was simply missing in Salt Lake. You can usually find this place bustling after work for those who are looking to kick back a little after a long day at the office. Beerhive is also known to have a little something for everyone. It has a patio that sits right on Main Street, a long narrow East Coast inspired bar with an ice strip down the entire length to keep your beer cold, and pool tables in the basement.
- The Red Door – Looking for a seasonal martini to celebrate that piece of good news you just received? Then look no further than celebrating at the Red Door. This martini bar sits next to the Hotel Monaco and across from Capitol Theater making it the best place for an after show drink. Oh, and they also have seasonally inspired menus that never disappoint.
- The Garage – You’ve heard the saying, don’t judge a book by its cover, well just apply this same principle to the Garage. Located in the industrial area of Beck Street, the Garage is a must-try when you’re looking for a great place to grab a drink. We suggest trying the Garage in the summer when you can fully enjoy the outdoor space, corn hole sets, and if you go on a weekend, the live bands.
- Twist – One of the newest places to grab a refreshing drink and some food is in the relaxed atmosphere of Twist. Located right on Exchange Place just off of Main Street you can enjoy a cold one on their lovely patio away from the Main Street crowds but still in the middle of bustling Salt Lake City.
