Historic Main Street is a home away from home for many Park City local entrepreneurs. Locals make Main Street a world-class shopping destination.

Local environmental biologist, vintner, skier and golfer, Dennis Romankowski and his wife, Gina Coccimiglio recently opened Cognition Winery and Mercantile on the top of Main Street in the Treasure Mountain Inn. Cognition Winery and Bistro is located just down the mountain on Iron Horse Drive.

Together, Dennis and Gina off er tastings of their delicious locally made wine. Since grapes do not flourish in the mountain climate, the Cognition vintners import from California, but make the wine here, in Park City.

Local artist, William J. “Kranny” Kranstover, designed the wine labels, showcasing true pieces of art featuring local places like the Old Miner’s Hospital and celebrities. Cooper’s Cabernet Sauvignon features a portrait of Gina’s dog, Cooper.

Cognition Winery offers guests the opportunity to join their Wine Club. Dennis and Gina give back to Park City community nonprofi t organizations with donated tastings and pairings; in addition, Cognition Winery partners with local restaurants.

Almost twenty years ago, local restauranteur, father and all-around nice guy, Jesse Shetler took over the No Name Saloon in the middle of Main Street. Open seven days a week, 365 days a year, locals know they can always get a world-famous buffalo burger, onion rings and a cold beer.

For the past three years, locals voted the No Name Saloon as Park City’s “best bar.” Th e No Name Saloon is eclectic. Filled with antiques, games, and an exquisite wood bar, patrons know that while they may forget their name, their bartender won’t.

Local Juliann Fritz notes, “I love sitting on the roof with friends and a burger. Th e bartenders at the No Name Saloon are the best, too. Th e view of downtown Park City is fantastic!” Their roof is filled with flowers, smiling locals, and warm sunshine all summer.

Under Jesse’s care, the No Name Saloon became a family.

Two local skiers, Stephen MacKay and Jason Morgan, combined their love of wine, passion for mountain adventure, and their enthusiasm for Park City to create Old Town Cellars.

Along with wine, beer and spirits, Old Town Cellars offers locally sourced fare from Beltex Meats and Ritual Chocolates. Old Town Cellars blends more than fine wine; they blend the best of Park City.
