Just here for drinks with colleagues.  Kind of big, large outdoor seating area, tables with umbrellas, indoor space and very large bar.  Upstairs an outside deck, inside bar, outside bar, more seating, TVs.  Parts of it had a sports bar vibe, but overall a casual impression.

Don’t think I can blame the place for this, but Salt Lake City needs to figure out how to have bars.  Its great you can actually get a drink now, but there’s still something weird in how they ask you “an ounce or an ounce and a half”.  Makes for a very tiny martini, which explains why it had multiple twists and olives in it.

Super bonus for live jazz on Monday night.  Could hear it coming up the street as they were in the outdoor area (a very nice night for sitting out).  4 or 5 guys blowing standards, but were pretty good and it made for great atmosphere when sitting outside.
