Welcome to the Explore Utah series, which examines five exciting locations for you weekly, to enjoy while attending the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce National Convention, beginning Sept. 21-23. Whether you’re looking for a short walk from The Grand America Hotel, or a nice drive through Utah’s scenic Wasatch Front, we’ll help you find entertainment. This week we focus on Utah’s unique nightlife.
Within walking distance:
If you’re looking for a place to unwind after your busy day associating with fellow business leaders, Whiskey Street (323 S. Main, SLC) is your place to sit back, relax and take in what downtown Salt Lake City has to offer. The social club is a short TRAX ride, or a brief stroll from The Grand America Hotel. The hangout displays a superb menu of food and beverages.
A short walk north on Salt Lake City’s Main Street, from The Grand America Hotel, Keys on Main (242 S. Main, SLC) offers an exciting atmosphere to socialize, while listening to pianists perform all the classics. Keys on Main has a variety of cocktails, shots and food items. At 8:30 p.m. on Sept. 23, take the chance to impress your friends by belting out a song, or two, during Keys on Main’s Tuesday night karaoke.
For a change of pace, Brewvies Cinema Pub (677 S. 200 West, SLC) will give you an opportunity to catch up on pop culture and let the cinema do the talking. At Brewvies, you can choose a beverage from the 19 beers on tap and order from a wide dinner menu, while taking in a Hollywood blockbuster. It’s just around the corner from the national convention’s headquarters, at The Grand America Hotel, so you won’t have to travel far to enjoy this downtown staple.
If you’re willing to travel:
Unwinding can be a key component to successfully attending the national convention. Sometimes that comes in the form of a relaxing drink, a bite to eat or gaming. If trivia is your specialty, make sure you head to Club 90 (9065 S. Monroe St., Sandy) on Sept. 22 at 7 p.m. This classic club is a short trip south from downtown Salt Lake City via Interstate 15.
Fresh mountain air can be hard to beat. That’s why No Name Saloon and Grill (447 Main St., Park City) may be your best option to decompress. A nice drive through Parley’s Canyon, on the east end of the Salt Lake Valley, will steer you toward Park City’s relaxing atmosphere. No Name Saloon and Grill has a selection of draft beers and great menu items including burgers, salads and sandwiches. Be sure to take in the saloon’s rooftop patio.
This list of rich nightlife will provide fun, easy to find entertainment during your stay at the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce National Convention.
