  • Oenophiles in the know head downstairs to Tupelo’s wine bar for a premium selection of wines by the glass served with a side of Old Town history. This Wine Spectator prestigious Best of Award of Excellence distinction winner stores the bottles in a glass-walled wine cellar built around the ancient boiler installed by Utah Power & Light Company in 1927. 508 Main St,

  • Whether snuggling up in a cozy leather armchair or rubbing elbows at the beloved historic bar, romantics make Firewood’s downstairs Nickel Bar a date night destination all on its own. Try the full-strength 1869 Manhattan. 306 Main St,
  • With a recent move uphill to 427 Main St, The Cabin tripled its dining space, updated the bar menu (now serving all day), and designed “The Den” downstairs as a new go-to for live music with VIP lounge seating. Don’t worry, you’ll still find Park City mascot Al the Elkupine guarding the front door. 427 Main St,

  • A Park City institution for sushi and spirits, Shabu’s sleek bar is always a favorite. Sip a signature cocktail (Spiced Pear Saketini, anyone?), savor a glass of Japanese whisky (yes, spelled without the “e”), or splurge on a split of sake, such as Divine Droplets Junmai Daiginjo. 442 Main St,
  • The entire O.P. Rockwell experience is a dark and decadent subgrade immersion, in the best possible way. Live concerts in this uber-swanky, velvet-curtained space are a spectacle for the eyes and ears and the craft cocktail program a treat for the taste buds. 268 Main St,
