Salt Lake City's Liquor Laws

Relax, there are over 400 places where you can get a drink in Utah.

First, Private Clubs are a thing of the past.
Now you walk into a bar and order a drink, just like the rest of the country.

Also, just like the rest of the country, you have to be 21 to enter. Verifying someones age is easier these days. If you look younger than 60, they will ask for your ID. Preferably your drivers license or a passport. It will be scanned and if it's valid, you're in. So, if you're looking for a bar near your hotel, a cool sports bar, a local brew pub or a nice glass of wine, you'll find it here in Salt Lake.

You can have drinks in Salt Lake Bars, and restaurants, and you can buy bottles of your favorite liquor at our state-run liquor stores.

Wine is served in restaurants, bars and can also be purchased at the state liquor stores.

The Old 3.2% alcohol by weight beer (which was actually 4% alcohol by volume, a more common measure) was allowed to be sold in retail locations, grocery stores, etc. Beer on tap, or draft beer as it is known in Salt Lake's bars and restaurants was also only 3.2%. That's History!

It has been coined 'The Modernization of Utah' - Back in 2019 Utah Updated our Liquor Laws where you can purchase stronger alcohol based beer and is now sold at our grocery and convenience stores.

You Can Buy Full Strength Beer In Utah!
Full-strength beer, 4% and up to 13% is sold in select bars and restaurants and our state owned liquor stores. Tap Beer or draft as it is known is usually around 5.0 percent ABV.

With the elevation of 4000 feet plus above sea level, getting a "Buzz" on, can happen quickly in Utah. And if you're up in Park City at over 7000 feet above sea level, we suggest you take cabs, Uber, or maybe a designated driver, and just be careful. Our DUI/DWI Laws are the strictest in the nation at .05%!

Brew Pubs
Our Brew Pubs do offer some of the best food in town and are definitely worth visiting. When traveling, visiting a city's brew pubs can be a highlight of any day.
