A vibrant community, Salt Lake City impresses many first-time visitors. The 2002 Winter Olympics helped put Salt Lake City on the map, and the many world-class ski resorts and nature reserves in the area make this a year-round destination. It’s no surprise that there’s also a growing gay population.

The city is a lot less dominated by the Mormon Church than the rest of the state, but the liquor laws are strict. Taverns and lounges sell beer only. Mixed drinks are served at “private membership” clubs. You can buy a two-week membership card or get someone at the door to “sponsor” you.
