Park City Town — Apres-ski and nightlife

Immediate slopeside apres-ski centers are Deer Valley’s The Lounge, where the deck in spring gets packed and live entertainment performs on the weekends; Legends Bar & Bistroand The Brew House, both in the Legacy Lodge at Park City Mountain Resort base; and The Forum at The Canyons.

According to locals, O’Shucks is the place to be on Main Street for the younger folks (skiers and boarders). Harry Os, half way down Main, is a giant warehouse of a bar, complete with six pool tables, a big-screen TV showing the game and a boisterous younger crowd who need to be carded to get in. It is the place on Saturday nights. The No Name Saloon, next door, is your basic bar with a shuffleboard table, loud juke music and louder conversation.

Couple in Park City NightspotMother Urban’s, named after a famous bordello madam, is a cellar version of a knotty-pine mining shack that sells 101 beers and features live jazz Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Also try the Wasatch Brew Pub at the top of Main Street, where you can watch the brewing process even as you reap its yeasty rewards. The Spur on Main Street offers a comfortable, no-smoking setting with live music. Adolph’s, with piano music, has been recommended for quieter evenings in the newer section of town.

When the Egyptian Theater performs plays, as it often does during the winter, it makes a nice evening’s entertainment. The Eccles Center, which opened in 1998, houses two live stages and is a year-round focal point for the performing arts in Park City. For weekly arts and entertainment events, call 647-9747 or 655-3114.
