SALT LAKE CITY (January 2014) — Back by popular demand, Visit Salt Lake is again supporting the Salt Lake City Festival Café in downtown Salt Lake January 17-25. This year's host, Sicilia Pizza Kitchen, is located at 35 West Broadway -- directly across from its historic venue, the now-closed Beehive Tea Room.
The Café will offer live music every evening (see performance schedule below). There is no entrance fee and it's open to the public, but seating is limited. Conveniently located between the two main Salt Lake City Festival theatre venues of Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center and Broadway Centre Cinemas, the Café is the perfect place for filmmakers and festival goers to relax and discuss the films.
"The Café is a perfect place to continue your conversations after a film and the extended hours will be popular with the later crowd," said Michael Mack, VP of Services for Visit Salt Lake. The Cafe will be open Sundays until 10 p.m., Monday through Thursday until 11 p.m., and until 3 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights.
Salt Lake City Festival Café - Sicilia Pizza Kitchen, 35 West Broadway (300 South) / (801) 961-7077 Sicilia Pizza Kitchen's menu of appetizers, subs, salads, gourmet pizzas and calzones complements a full roster of bottle and draft beers and liquors.
