In an open poll of our agents, Boneyard was the highest ranking vote. Advertising their wood fired grill, fine comfort foods, 10 jumbo screen TVs, summer rooftop dining and over 100 draft & bottled beers, Boneyard makes for the perfect place to kick back and relax after a long day.

HIGH WEST DISTILLERY
High West Distillery
High West Distillery has an extremely rich history dating back to 1870. “High West began with humble roots, opening a small, 250-gallon still and Saloon in an historic livery stable and garage. What was once a small operation in downtown Park City has grown to be an internationally-recognized brand with four unique locations. In 2015, High West opened their distillery in Wanship, Utah, which acts as a space for educational whiskey tasting, pairings and tours, and houses a 1600-gallon copper pot still,” reads their website.
Our agents also give it fantastic reviews. “It is always a great place to meet early and grab a specialty cocktail or ski down mid-day for lunch and warming up. It has a great “Western” vibe and the food and service are excellent. Mike loves the Dead Man’s Boots a signature whiskey cocktail, but I can’t pass up the vodka lemonade in any season! It’s made and with their High West Vodka and a spiced simple syrup – It’s not a traditional vodka lemonade. And the burger, best in town!” says Bonita Hutchison.

THE SPUR BAR & GRILL

The Spur is another crowd favorite, with a great music scene and comfortable vibe. Not as rustic, but still definitely still a part of Park City’s fabric, if you’re looking for some great live music and incredible food, this is definitely where you’ll want to find yourself on a Friday night.
“Mike and I love live music, so the Spur is our #1 place for a fun night out. It offers a little something for everyone, a quiet bar upfront, a DJ and dancing upstairs, and live music and dancing in the back. We’ve never been to the Spur and not had a good time,” says Bonita.
If you’re up for being immediately hungry, take a look at their online menu. You can find it here. They also have a full list of cocktails, so you can plan your next night out before you arrive.
NO NAME SALOON & GRILL

With a completely original flair and originally called “THE ALAMO,” No Name has 17 flat screen TVs and can handle a crowd. Whether it’s game day, Saturday or you’re just looking for a place to relax after a long day, No Name is the OG Park City bar scene for you.
“You really can’t get more old school Park City than the No Name. It’s got the best vibe in town. It is set in an old historic building, the décor is a little wild west meets flea market – I love it! It’s a great place to belly up, people watch, or catch the game. You can’t get a full Park City experience without a visit to the No Name,” comments Bonita about this historic locale.
Layla Ward also added: “I went to the no name many a night when I was younger, and when it was the Alamo I was a regular because I lived in Old Town. It’s a real drinking bar. I don’t go there much anymore. The bone yard has been a nice addition to the North of Main neighborhood. So it’s my neighborhood bar. It’s easy to meet up with friends there and either go to the bone yard or the wine dive. I like their roof top bar in the summer, and the Blind Dog bar next door is nice and cozy in the winter. Lots of options in one place…. And parking is easy.”
Last, but certainly not least on our list, is Fletchers, specifically downstairs.
“I would add Fletchers downstairs to the list. It’s a great spot for an after dinner drink when you want a quiet atmosphere to catch up with old friends. The lounge area offers warm and cozy seating, the food is excellent, and the service is always over the top. It’s very different from the other places listed, but another great location to grab a cocktail on a cold winter night,” says Bonita.
Not only is the scene at Fletcher’s polished and relaxing, you’ll also love the story of how it all began. Taken from their about page, here’s the inspirational story of Fletcher’s beginning:
Once upon a time, there was a dog. Fletcher wasn’t always his name. He was abused and abandoned; shot with a gun, for shame. His lucky day came at last when he was rescued from a shelter by a girl named Sue. Sadness slipped away, and a good life began. Fletcher’s heart is so big. He wants everyone to be as happy as he is.
Sue (same one!) and Steve Demarest share a love of healthy living, mixed cocktails, entrepreneurism, kindness, house music, reclaimed woods, mountain towns, the beauty of great restaurants, the comforts of home… and Fletcher! They were inspired by Fletcher’s example to create a restaurant and lounge dedicated to making people happy. It’s that simple.
And then food entered the story. Fresh food. Local. Natural. Highest quality. Produce from nearby farms practicing sustainable agriculture. Yes, farms! Healthy food. Grass-fed meats. Organic chicken. Expertly-handcrafted cocktails too! And a chef renowned for simple recipes masterfully prepared. Welcome Chef Scott Boberek back to Main Street, joining Fletcher’s as partner.
So, in conclusion, whether you’re looking for a refined experience, a place to catch the game with the boys, or just want a good cocktail and some fantastic food, Park City’s night life options have got you covered.
