  • The High West Distillery
  • Canyons Village: Umbrella & Drafts
  • Downtown: Flanagan's Irish Pub
  • Unique: The Boneyard Saloon

Just like the skiing options in Park City, there’s more than one (excellent) game in town when it comes to après.

Despite Utah’s strict liquor laws, the pubs, bars, and taverns in and around Park City offer some of the best après-ski destinations in all of ski country.

Here, your guide to kicking back with a cocktail after crushing corduroy or plowing through powder in Park City.

If you want an après spot with literal local flavor, click out of your bindings at High West Distillery & Saloon.

The world’s only ski-in distillery has been crafting small-batch spirits since the 1870s.

With 17 mountain-crafted whiskies, vodkas, and specialty spirits being poured just a block off Main Street, there’s no reason not to après here.

If it’s on the ever-changing menu, the bacon-wrapped delta blue shrimp are not to be missed.

Flanagan's Irish Pub Park City, Utah

For a taste of the old country, head to Flanagan’s Irish Pub & Restaurant on Main Street.

Warm up with an Irish Coffee, complete with brown sugar and house-made whipped cream.

Catch the game on one of several flat-screen TVs while sampling the finest Guinness pour in town.

If you stick around for dinner, these guys have all the traditional Irish fare, ranging from fish and chips to shepherd’s pie.

The corned-beef sandwich—smothered with apple-onion relish, horseradish mayo, and Swiss on rye—is a must.

Head downstairs to work off the hearty grub on the dance floor: Flanagan’s features live music most nights during the ski season.

If you have the family in tow, go straight to the Umbrella Bar at Canyons Village.

Umbrella Bar Canyons Ski Resort

This gigantic outdoor deck features 360-degree views of the resort and Wasatch mountain range.

Take it all in through a unique glass enclosure while your little rippers are entertained by roving jugglers, magicians, and balloon artists.

Try Umbrella’s signature scone burger or a buffalo hot dog along with a brew, and let the party begin: Challenge the kids to a game of foosball or ring toss—and if you’re there in the spring, don’t miss the Spring Grüv concert series from the deck.

This place has been hosting a mean après-ski scene for locals and tourists alike since 1974.

Great beer, a huge patio, and live music most nights keep the party going long after the lifts stop spinning.

Build your own burger, and sample the sounds of Ryan Walsh on guitar and vocals this ski season.

If you’re looking for something off the beaten path, head to the Boneyard Saloon and Kitchen in the Prospectors section of town.

This cozy neighborhood joint is the latest addition to the Park City après-ski scene, brought to you by local restaurateur Jesse Schettler.

The Boneyard serves delicious locally grown, gastro-style fare prepared over a charcoal- and wood-fired oven.

The Boneyard Belly Burger—topped with pork belly, onion rings, smoked garlic aioli, and house-made pickles—is the perfect way to end your ski day.

Pair it with a pint from an endless selection of beers, and you’ll be in bed early and ready for a fresh start the next morning.
