Mixed Emotions
(801) 355-8055
1030 S State St
Salt Lake City, UT
Mixed Emotions - Here's the problem with most bars: the vibe sometimes dies around 1am. Luckily for you, when most bars are sweeping up the floors and closing shop, Mixed Emotions kicks it into another gear. The place usually keeps it going 'til way late-guaranteeing a late and out-of-control night.

(801) 521-8300
155 W 200 S
Salt Lake City, UT
Shaggy's - Why go to bed when you can have another drink? At Shaggy's, located at [Address], the party marches into the late, late hours, as they have one of the best all-night parties. Of course, this could mean some serious pain the next morning (or, more likely, the next afternoon.) Don't say we didn't warn you.

Uncle Bart's

219 W 200 S
Salt Lake City, UT
Shamrock Lounge - Want to throw a huge party with 300 of your closest friends? Shamrock Lounge is probably not the place to do it. But if you're interested in grabbing a quick drink and possibly some bar food, Shamrock Lounge is more than able to oblige.

Twilite Club
(801) 532-9400
347 E 200 S
Salt Lake City, UT
Twilite Club is the type of place you start off your night. The drinks are cheap and strong but the crowd isn't the type to get the party started. Grab a quick drink here and then head out to the real party. -Review of Twilite Club

Sport X
(801) 359-7777
251 W 900 S
Salt Lake City, UT
Sport X - Sometimes you just don't want to pay $12 for a drink. On those nights, head out to Sport X, located at [Address]. And while they may be cheaper, they're definitely not weaker.

Dawg Pound
(801) 261-9017
3550 S State St
Salt Lake City, UT
Dawg Pound - Twenty dollar cover? Nope. Celebrities? None. Dawg Pound is nowhere near the pages of Us Weekly or TMZ, but hey, beer is beer, whiskey is whiskey. A friendly neighborhood bar where you can pretty much wear whatever the hell you want. (But leave the cargo-shorts at home.)

Essential Bartending Equipment

By Russ Cobbe

Setting up your own home bar can be great fun when you have people over. It isn't overly expensive to get all the essentials. So what are the tools of the trade you'll need to show off to your guests?

Blender - If you don't already have one, get a good one that has good speed and power. Nothing is more annoying than waiting 5 minutes to crush up some ice or blend a drink.

Paring Knife/Cutting Board - Used to cut up lemons and limes for garnishing along with other fruits in certain drinks.

Shaker - Used for mixing various drinks.

Measure - There is a special device that looks like two triangles on top of each other at the apexes but a lot of people use a shot glass these days.

Bar Strainer - Used in a lot of cocktail recipes to stain out ice that might have been used to cool ingredients in a recipe. It looks like a little paddle with lots of round rings on the end.

Lemon/Lime Squeezer - This has a flat collector base with a raised pointed section in the middle with ridges. Its used to squeeze out fresh lemon or lime juice.

There are over 20 different styles of glasses from brandy to wine. Did y...
