Know Before You Go

Utah has an interesting reputation for (or should we say against?) booze and (coffee) brews. And while it’s often a pleasant revelation for visitors to experience the exponentially-expanding beer, cocktail, and coffee scene, look for these rules:

  • Be prepared to order food with your drinks. While it’s not required in bars, restaurants may still ask you to do so.
  • Don’t even ask about drink specials—happy hour discounts are still illegal here.
  • You’ll see signs at establishment designating whether it’s a restaurant or a bar due to recent state legislation. Most will still serve both food and alcoholic beverages.
  • Brunch drink service starts at 10:30 a.m. on Sundays.
