When the ski boots come off, put on your dancing shoes! Whether you’re in the mood for an intimate accoustic set or want to jam with some of the biggest names in the industry, there’s no shortage of live music venues that will make your want to kick up your heels and sing along with the band.
If you’re looking for a place to get your groove on, here are some local spots that really know how to rock.
Perhaps best known for having bartenders who perform as much as its bands do (think Tom Cruise in “Cocktail”), O.P. Rockwell has become Park City’s newest “it” spot for live music, seemingly overnight.
Tucked into a historic underground space that’s rich with history and character, O.P. Rockwell’s outlaw style is carried through the venue and accentuated in its outlaw inducing craft cocktails. Featuring national-touring groups throughout the season you are sure to be entertained and enthralled with
the bands as well as the venue. For a current show schedule visit oprockwell.com
THE SPUR BAR AND GRILL
Just a boot-scootin’ boogie down the hill at 352 Main Street, you’ll find The Spur. This western-themed saloon has live music nightly. Local, regional, and national music acts take the stage all winter long, with genres ranging from rock to Celtic and everything in between.
Between sets, line up your friends for the bar’s famous “shot ski” (it’s exactly what it sounds like), warm up by the fireplace, or simply take in the scene and people-watch. You never know who you’ll see. Cover charges vary nightly. thespurbarandgrill.com
Located in the heart of Main Street, you will find Flanagan’s. A true local’s spot, this Irish pub has a warm environment with a full selection bar and menu. Guests can enjoy an excellent dinner in a relaxed setting, then indulge in some live music later in the night.
Stop in on a cold day, and bring the kids! Kick your feet up and enjoy an Irish coffee or the “perfect pint.” Check out the Flanagan’s website for
performance dates of local and touring talents performing. flanagansonmain.com
Home to the Park City Institute (PCI) in the winter months, the George S. & Dolores Dore Eccles Center for the Performing Arts has welcomed entertainers from all over the world.
“Performers from Bernadette Peters to Alvin Ailey- all genres, really- have entertained our audiences here,” said Teri Orr, PCI’s executive director. “Our amazing sound system and terrific deep stage allow us to really showcase these incredible events.” And while the 2017 schedule was still being finalized at press time, Orr
promises it won’t disappoint. “This will be our most spectacular season yet!” ecclescenter.org
