Experience the Best SLC Bar and Night Life at Lake Effect

While many of Salt Lake City’s residential suburbs are snoozing by 10 p.m., the downtown area is just waking up. One of the best places you can go for excellent nightlife is Lake Effect, one of the city’s newest locations for craft cocktails, beers, wines, fine dining, live music, and more! 

An Excellent Location for a Newer Bar in Salt Lake City 

This elegant bar in Salt Lake City is in an ideal location, just across the street on the south side of the Salt Palace. This makes it ideal for anyone attending a convention or event to pop on over for a nightcap.   

Within walking distance, there are dozens of amenities including entertainment, shopping, hotels, convenience stores, and more. When you’re through with a long day of shopping, you might pop in to check out our Spanish-inspired menu. 

If you’ve already eaten at another of downtown Salt Lake City’s amazing restaurants, come in and listen to our nightly live music. We’re a great place to end your night, no matter what kind of day you’ve had.   

Live Music in Salt Lake City into the Night 

We’re open nightly until 1:00 am any day of the week. While we’re open, we have live music playing for your enjoyment. Some of our featured artists include:

Angie Petty (@apettymusic), a pop singer specializing in R&B and jazz. Her lively tunes and sultry voice will have you mesmerized as you sip one of our famous craft cocktails. 

Spock Block, (@spockblockofficial) a truly unique group whose Instagram description reads: On an Alien outcast mission to spread our Funkafide Spectacle Galaxy Rock—w/ space balls.” Doesn’t that make you want to hear their unique sound? 

Lounge 40 (@lounge40), a local favorite band that covers all your favorite songs from the top 40 charts but with a unique, laid-back spin on their tunes. 

Alain Viny (@alainviny), a very talented up and coming artist you’ll want to hear! 

We love to feature local talent, many of which you may not have heard before. This means you’ll get to hear new music regularly rather than the same old songs on the radio while supporting Salt Lake City’s finest local artists. 

An Elegant Bar in Salt Lake City 

We don’t believe that you can only party on weekends. We take an elegant spin on nightlife so you can enjoy a break from your hectic life on a Wednesday or a Saturday. 

We simply excel in the beverage industry. We have almost 100 different wines, 150+ beers, and the largest spirit selection you can find in the state of Utah. You’ll love our unique ambiance while sipping a glass of any of our amazing beverages. 

An Exquisite Spanish-Inspired Menu in Salt Lake City 

We have one of the best Spanish-inspired menus in Salt Lake City. It pairs perfectly with the many craft drinks and spirits we have available. 

While we’re best known for our nightlife, you don’t have to wait until the evening to sample our Spanish-inspired menu. We also feature brunch and lunch items, so feel free to visit us during the day as well.

We also recently hired a new Executive Chef with a French culinary background. We’ve just released a new menu, and we can’t wait for you to try it! 

Private and Public Events in Salt Lake City 

Lake Effect could be the ideal location for your next private event. We specialize in offering a unique event venue that can be catered to meet your needs. We love to do company parties and private celebrations. 

If you book a private event at our elegant bar in Salt Lake City, we give you our full bar service, gourmet food, a large stage, a professional sound system, and entertainment if requested. You can use our stage for presentations or your own performances, or we can provide entertainment for you.

You don’t have to book a private event to enjoy something special at Lake Effect, though. Our bar in Salt Lake City also features many public events for you to enjoy. We usually have various events to celebrate the holidays, and we often have tastings of our various drinks.
