Contrary to what people might believe -- there is a thriving night life in Utah!
Although our liquor laws are a bit convoluted and in a constant state of flux,
they have recently been eased to make it easier to get a drink.
You are no longer requied to purchase a membership in a private club in order to get a cocktail.
However, if you do not want to drink in a bar or club, and you want something other than 3.2 beer you will need to plan ahead.
There are only 3 liquor stores in Ogden, and they are not open on Sundays.
Two of them close at 7PM (Monday - Saturday) and the other one is only open until 9PM.
25th Street is the hub of nite life in Ogden.
There are a number of bars and clubs there which visitors might enjoy.
is one of them.
They have live music, pool tables, and a large screen TV.
The City Club
It is a little more quiet and refined, and they pride themselves on serving foods without any artificial ingedients.
They also have a great collection of Beatle's memorabilia.
Wiseguys Comedy Club
is also on 25th Street and it is a great place to go for a laugh.
They have live shows every Friday and Saturday night, bringing in great acts from all over the country.
is another private club that offers pool and a big screen TV for sports.
They regularly bring in talented bands, mostly with a country western flavor.

is the place to go.
They brew all of their own beers and they are delicious.
They always have their four standard beers ranging from a light honey wheat to a dark chocolate stout.
While my wife just loves the honey wheat, I particulary like the flavor of their tangy Polygamy Pale Ale.
They also always offer two additional beers which change on a seasonal basis.
