Nightlife in Salt Lake City, UT
Who knew the piano could be this cool? Talented musicians put all those years of practice to work to create an experience for you that can range anywhere from thrilling to nostalgic- the experience is all up to you! Two pianists sit at baby grands on the stage and play whatever you ask them to, as long as the tip is right. If you want to stop a song, just tip $1 more than the last tip and you now have control of the atmosphere again! Don't be surprised if you find yourself singing along; in fact your participation is encouraged!
They say laughter is good for relationships, so grab your man and head to Wise Guys Comedy Club for date night this week! You might discover your new favorite comic in an unknown performer or you could even catch some bigger names like Jon Lovitz or Michael Ian Black. The club also features hypnotists from time to time. If you think you've got what it takes to make an audience laugh, you can even strut your stuff on stage at Open Mic Night each Wednesday. Check the website for special coupons like 2 for 1 entrance.
Bayleaf Bar and Grub is a popular spot for clubbers on the weekends because it literally does not close its doors. The kitchen opens at 11 am on Friday and doesn't close until midnight on Sunday. Serving up American Southern cuisine with Filipino, Korean and Chinese food, you're sure to find something to satisfy your palate, whether you're in the mood for their famous chicken n waffles or rice bowls. In addition to the varied menu, Bayleaf offers a full bar and you can even enjoy your culinary choices on the outdoor patio. Everything is made from scratch and represents the owners' memories of comfort food during childhood.
If you want to get away from the downtown scene, but still want to dance with your girls, drive a few minutes south to Sandy where you'll find yourself in Club Allure's "something for everyone" atmosphere. Dance on the patio next to firepits during the cool months or play pool next to the dance floor and main bar in a big party atmosphere. Spend time in the quieter Crown Room where you can enjoy live acoustic music Friday nights or karaoke Saturday nights. And if all you want to do is dance, dance, dance, plant yourself firmly in the main room with the largest lightspace interactive dance floor in the US.
If you and your girlfriends feel like dancing, hit Area 51 for a unique experience. Each night features a different theme. Show off (or make a fool of yourself) at Wednesday's Klub Karaoke. Pull out your hair crimper to get dolled up for Thursday's 80s Insanity and get ready to hear some Depeche Mode. Dance the night away to fresh remixes of electronics, 80s, Alternative and Club Favorites at Friday's Re-Mix Madness. And get ready to move to Saturday's Alterna-Mash, Salt Lake City's best alternative mix.
