Utah Liquor Laws, An Explanation

Thanks to our Governor and the Utah Legislature, getting a drink in Salt Lake City is just like the rest of the country. Well almost. Every state has some quirks.

Getting a double is a little harder.

In Restaurants you have to order food with your drink.

Not so in Bars. You don't have to order food.

Our DUI/DWI Laws are the strictest in the nation! Our DUI 'Driving Under the Influence' is now .05%. Our advice, if you've been drinking, don't drive - Take a cab, Uber or have a designated driver, it's worth it!

There are over 400 places where you can get a drink in Utah, and getting into a bar is easy.

Private Clubs are a thing of the past.
You walk into a bar and order a drink, just like the rest of the country. Also, just like the rest of the country, you have to be 21 to enter. Verifying someones age is easier here. If you look younger than 50, they will ask for your ID. Preferably your drivers license. It will be scanned in seconds, and if it's valid, you're in. So, if you're looking for a bar near your hotel, a unique sports bar, a local brew pub or a nice glass of wine, you'll find it in Salt Lake.

You can have drinks in Salt Lake bars, restaurants, and you can buy bottles of your favorite liquor at state liquor stores listed below.

Wine is served in restaurants, bars and can also be purchased at the state liquor stores.

Full-strength beer is sold in bars and restaurants. But, what sucks about it is, that it's only bottled beer, not tap or draft. Bottled beer is also sold at state liquor stores (see addresses below) . You can purchase 3.2% beer at the grocery and convenience stores. With the elevation of 4000 feet plus above sea level, getting a "Buzz" on, happens very quickly! And if you're up in Park City at over 7000 feet above sea level, we advise you to take cabs or Uber, maybe a designated driver, and just be careful. Our DUI/DWI Laws are the strickest in the nation and got just tougher when the DUI/DWI alcohol limit went down from .08% to .05%.

Brew Pubs
Our brew pubs do offer some of the best food in town and are definitely worth visiting.

Smoking is Not Allowed in Utah Bars and Restaurants.
