3 Best Places for a Cocktail in Park City


Fall in Park City | September 9, 2021

We’ll admit, Utah, in general, isn’t exactly known for its exciting bar scene. In fact, most establishments are allowed to only offer beers on tap that have up to 5% alcohol by volume. But despite some stringent guidelines, there’s still something for everyone to enjoy a few libations in Park City— including fun pubs, fancy craft cocktail saloons, and rowdy sports bars.

Here’s our pick for the three best places to catch a buzz in Park City.

No Name Saloon Bar & Grill- 447 Main Street

On many lists as the best bar in Park City, No Name Saloon is our first choice for not only a fantastic cocktail or two— but some delicious dining, too. We especially love their Bourbon Old Fashioneds and Gin Basil Smashes. This fall, you’ll want to sip on one of their Alpine Hot Toddies— with spiced whiskey, lemon, and honey. Yuummm. No Name also offers an impressive wine list and tons of beers on tap or in bottles.

If you’re feeling a little hungry, help yourself to their Loaded Tater Tots, Saloon Burger, or Fish Tacos. Keep in mind that the saloon side of No Name is strictly for 21 and over clientele, but they have a family-friendly side called Annex Burger right next door that welcomes the kiddos.

O.P. Rockwell – 268 Main Street

If live music is your thing, you’ll want to set aside an evening or two and spend some quality time at O.P Rockwell— an awesome cocktail lounge and music hall. Named after an infamous Wild West figure, they have an ever-revolving roster of interesting craft cocktails— like their refreshing Moscow Mules— as well as a dynamic roster of extraordinary local and non-local musical talent. You can also order a beer or a glass of wine while you enjoy the show, too.

Downstairs- 625 Main Street

For a true night on the town feel, put on your dancing shoes and head downtown to Downstairs— a gorgeous nightclub that plays music to make you move. They boast that they feature some of the best DJs in the country and offer an “immersive experience” that includes lighting shows. This is the perfect spot for a girl’s night out or bachelor/bachelorette parties, too. They encourage big groups to call ahead and plan their memorable night out with help from the staff. Boogie down, baby!

Don’t forget— even though the alcohol content might not be as high as other parts of the country, the elevation of Park City makes the drinks feel just as strong. A “normal” drink at 7,000 feet will hit you a lot more quickly than it would at sea level. So keep that in mind as you explore the pub scene in Park City and be safe.
