Best Place to Chill
Beerhive Pub
When there are more than 200 beers on a menu from all over the world, picking the right one becomes a little intimidating. The bartenders at the Beerhive offer tremendous help with their vast knowledge of these beers and what meal would best complement them—food provided by next-door-neighbor Michelangelo Ristorante. Need something even more unique? You can keep those beers nice and frosty on a strip of ice that lines the bar. You have yourself a winner, friend. With the City Creek development opening nearby, this will be the perfect place for Salt Lakers and visitors to chill, literally.

Best Main Refrain

Keys on Main
It does the soul good, riding down Main Street on Trax and seeing a lively piano bar pulling in the crowds at the Gallivan stop. For those recent years when downtown had little to offer except widespread construction, Keys on Main kept the lights on and gave revelers a reason to gather, eat pub food, clink their glasses, request and sing along to piano tunes played by talented entertainers. Now that downtown’s got its groove back, Keys on Main is still the best place to get your party on and take a train home.

The Hog Wallow

Best Outdoorsy Pub
The Hog Wallow
As you approach Hog Wallow through the backroads of the Old Mill area of Cottonwood Heights, you’ll realize you’re about to enter a pub that’s unlike any other in Salt Lake City. Interior wood-based furnishings give Hog Wallow a warm cabin feeling throughout. The live bands add to the aura of the pub but are anything but overwhelming, still allowing close conversations. When you step outside, choose from any of the multilevel-patio sweet spots to indulge in a cool drink and some fresh air in this all-natural setting.3200 E. Big Cottonwood Canyon Road, Cottonwood Heights, 801-733-5567,
