About Ski Town Restaurants

Salt Lake City Liquor Laws

Despite what you may have heard, it is not difficult to get a drink in Salt Lake City. Almost every restaurant in town serves alcohol, and there are more bars per capita than anywhere else in the state of Utah. From hip downtown bars, to local breweries, to award winning wine lists, Salt Lake 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 2009, 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/Convenience Stores

Grocery and convenience stores can sell 3.2% beer Monday Saturday. 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.
