Park City isn’t just about blues, blacks and bump runs. If you’re pumped up after a day on the slopes and want to experience the “dark” side of Park City, don your street duds and dancing shoes and head out to one of the many clubs and restaurants for a night on the town.

Saunter on over to Flanagan’s on Main for a bit o’ the Irish. Enjoy hearty Emerald Isle fare and classic cocktails while enjoying live music or DJ’s every Saturday in the Underground Tavern. Want to make your own music? Join in every Friday for “Kick-Ass Karaoke.” Or if your idea of a fun evening is testing your brainpower after an Irish coffee or two, try your luck at Thursday night’s “Mega Mind Trivia” contest and win Flanagan’s gift cards for your next visit.

Make a beeline for the Boneyard Saloon & Kitchen for tasty American gastro pub grub paired with your favorite pale ale from a selection of over 100 bottled and draft beers. Rub elbows with fellow pub crawlers at the long bar or community tables while digging into steamy pot pies, great burgers, juicy ribs and pizzas prepared in the saloon’s wood fi red oven. For lighter fare, guests can choose from the adjacent Wine Dive menu of small plates, tapas and tasty salads.

Main Street’s iconic No Name Saloon, voted “Best Place to Catch a Game,” is the perfect place to savor world-famous Buff alo Burgers or Epic Buff alo Wings while rooting for your favorite team on one of 17 TVs. Light up the night in this historic brick building while enjoying the newly expanded upstairs bar and year-round heated rooftop patio.

Congregate with 235 of your closest friends in The Spur Bar & Grill’s back room for live music nightly plus two singer/songwriter events annually. Listen to acoustic acts early in the week, dueling pianos on Thursdays and work up to the “party down” vibe on weekends. Listen as a DJ spins in the upstairs bar on weekends or gather downstairs for $5 burgers and wings until 7:00 pm. Check out the new Alpine Pie Bar at sister restaurant 350 Main and slip behind velvet curtains for a swanky lounge experience, slices of pie and classic alpine cocktails.

Meet at “The Rock!” O.P. Rockwell’s, named aft er Orrin Porter Rockwell, a Salt Lake City policeman and bodyguard for Joseph Smith and Brigham Young, is situated at the top of Main Street. This concert-sized “emporium of music” hosts live national touring acts on weekends in an historic underground space with a speakeasy feel. For a more intimate experience, head upstairs to the Rockwell Listening Room and gallery for pop-up dinners and “Nashville Unplugged” singer/songwriter events.

Whether your night vision is for cocktails, live music, sports, karaoke, beer tasting or Mega Mind Trivia, Park City lights up when the sun goes down.
