Have you noticed how much Salt Lake City’s bar scene has exploded in the past few years?  It seems like the city went from having only a handful of decent bars to suddenly having a whole host of places to indulge.

In just the last few months Salt Lake City has been introduced to a classy whiskey bar (Whiskey Street), a beer bar serving gourmet sausages (Beer Bar), and a cocktail bar with small plates (Copper Common); while last year we saw the opening of a wine bar (BTG) and a speakeasy (The Rest).  I love that Salt Lake City is finally a place where the answer to “Where should we go tonight?” requires some real thought.
