  • Twilite Lounge: Safe Since 1947

    Also: The Trapp Door, Bourbon House
      A photo booth, pool tables and a real rock fireplace are reason enough for going to any bar, but all that combined with its proximity to a police station (for safety’s sake) make Twilite Lounge (347 E. 200 South) the safest and most fun bar in town. It’s long been a favorite of Club Matters—up there with places like Cheers to You and Bar X—because of its folksy, relaxed vibe. Though the trends come and go, Twilite will always be a part of Salt Lake City, as it has been since 1947.
