Park City resort information & après-ski
The après-ski bar scene in Park City is busy, and not tempered by Utah’s strict drinking laws – as long as you are either a guest of a local, buy food with your drink, or become a temporary member of the bar.
Main Street is where the action is. The No Name Saloon (447 Main Street; tel: (435) 649 6667; www.nonamesaloon.net) is good for lively, beer-swilling fun; while the Wasatch Brew Pub (250 Main Street; tel: (435) 649 0900; www.wasatchbeers.com) is a little calmer. Later in the evening, Park City Live (427 Main Street; tel: (435) 649 9123; parkcitylive.net), a hip dance club, is the place to be.
When it comes to dining, Park City and Deer Valley offer flair and fun. There are around 100 choices, from cheap and cheerful cafés to fine dining restaurants.
Try the Blind Dog (251 Kearns Boulevard; tel: (435) 655 0800; blinddogpc.com) for an eclectic take on seafood and steak. Alternatively, sample Alpine dishes at the Goldener Hirsch (7570 Royal Street East; (tel: (435) 649 7770; www.goldenerhirschinn.com) or opt for gourmet fare at Apex in the Montage Deer Valley resort (9100 Marsac Avenue; tel: (435) 604 1300; www.montagedeervalley.com).
A more unusual night out involves a five-course dinner in the cosy Viking Yurt (tel: (435) 615 9878; www.vikingyurt.com), accessible via a sleigh ride up on the slopes.
