Despite what you may have heard, it is not difficult to get a drink in Park City. Almost every restaurant in town serves alcohol, and there are more bars per capita than anywhere else in the state of Utah. From après ski bars, to local breweries, to award winning wine lists, Park City is a great place to find your favorite new place to enjoy a drink.
Restaurants with a liquor license can serve wine, full strength beer, and liquor as long as you have the intent to order food. Restaurants with a beer license can only serve 3.2% beer.
As of July 1st 2011, there are no more private clubs in Utah! Bars can serve liquor, wine, and full strength beer from 10am until 1am. Visitors must be 21 or older to enter. Barcode scanners are used to validate ID's.
Grocery and convenience stores can sell 3.2% beer Monday – Saturday. Different stores have different hours, but the 7-11 at the corner of Park Avenue and Deer Valley Drive can sell beer 24 hours a day. Utah also measures alcohol by weight, and not by volume like the rest of the country. This means Utah beer is closer to 4.0% alcohol by volume.
