With 1,700 restaurants, 140 bars, 17,000 hotel rooms, 19 neighborhoods, theatres, shopping centers, microbreweries, distilleries, museums, professional sports, and more — if you can’t find something to do in Salt Lake — then you simply aren’t looking hard enough.


True to its name, Campfire Lounge features a large, dog-friendly patio with fire pits, movable seating, and an all-around, relaxed atmosphere. Grab a drink, pull up a chair to the fire, and escape to the mountains — without ever leaving town.

What’s better than a good steak? Not much. Well, unless you’d also like to try the barbequed shrimp, Caribbean lobster, stuffed chicken, market fresh seafood, or any of the other items made by Ruth’s Chris’ expert chefs using quality ingredients and a divine attention to detail.

A landmark since 1913, Capitol Theatre has played host to everything from the ballet, to opera, to the latest Broadway hit. If you’re looking for a night out on the town away from the busy bar scene, catch a show at Capitol Theatre.

If you’re after a more laid-back approach, Beer Bar is the place for you. With cafeteria-style seating and a menu full of local fair, Beer Bar is the ideal place to hang out with a large group, watch a game, and enjoy one of life’s greatest pleasures — beer.

Located on Salt Lake’s historic Main Street, Whiskey Street is a place where business executives rub elbows with urban locals. With good food, signature cocktails, and a 72-foot-long bar — stepping into Whiskey Street is like stepping back in time — when good drinks and conversation were all that mattered.

Since the first beer was poured in 1989, Squatters has been a local favorite for not only some of the best-brewed beer in town, but also some of the best food. So, if you want to get a real taste of the local scene, Squatters is your place.

Escape to space with Salt Lake’s only intergalactic experience. Open 363 days a year — and home to light shows, 3D attractions, a dome theater, and more — an afternoon spent at Clark Planetarium is an afternoon sure to be out of this world.

Plays and space exploration not your thing? Hit up Kilby Court — one of Salt Lake’s many local music venues — and rock your head to some of Salt Lake’s up-and-coming bands, as well as groups rolling through on tour. At Kilby Court, you’ll hear anything from punk to hip-hop.

Everybody loves sushi, and no city is truly complete without a good sushi spot. Make your way to Sapa after a long day and indulge your cravings with rolls like the Tasmanian Devil, Kiss of Death, and other Sapa specialties.
