Do people in Salt Lake City drink alcohol? Despite Utah’s reputation for some quirky liquor laws, Salt Lake and the entire Beehive state now have laws similar to the majority of the United States and alcohol is available every day at area bars and restaurants. In this video, we explore the downtown Salt Lake foodie and beverage scene in search of food, cocktails, and wine, sharing our findings and recommendations along the way. The unique local venues we patronized along our walking tour included the trendy Lake Effect and its swanky underground speakeasy, The Rabbit Hole, which offers a bevy of beverages and small bites. Next was Current Fish & Oyster and its bar next door housed in a big, beautiful refurbished antique shop with seafood and cocktail options aplenty. After working up an appetite and having some smaller plates, Valter’s Osteria was our dinner destination. This upscale, white-tablecloth Italian restaurant, with a modern twist on a Tuscan Granary, is set in loftlike surroundings with an intimate bar and open kitchen where we had tableside servings of pasta and delectable desserts to pair with wine. Overall, the caliber and amount of unique establishments with character exceeded expectations and are definitely worth enjoying when you’re in the area.
