Utah Drinking Laws

Can I get a drink in Utah?

If you are over 21, yes! Granted, Utah has a reputation for some quirky liquor laws; but Salt Lake and the entire Beehive state now have laws similar to the majority of states in the US. Alcohol is available every day at area bars and restaurants. However, you will notice bars and restaurants are required to announce their licensing with large signs. 

Tell me about Bars —

Anyone 21 and over can go to a bar and order a drink, period. Many of Salt Lake’s 200+ bars offer food, but snacking isn’t required.

And what about Restaurants?

Most restaurants offer alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages to complement their fare — beer, wine, cocktails — seven days a week. If you haven’t heard, Salt Lake is in the midst of a culinary revolution, combining long-time favorites with new and exciting eateries. If you want a drink or two with your meal, your server will happily oblige (assuming the restaurant has its liquor license and you’re of legal drinking age, of course).

Yes, it’s really as simple as that.
