Honestly, my wife's single friends always hang out at The Spur in PC. The Monkey Bar closed, so no more monkey business (or amateur lap dances either.)
There are some great bars in SLC, I hear the Depot is the happin'in place. But if you come to the Wasatch for the bars, I think you got your priorities mixed up...
at altitude, lower alcohol beer is sometimes preferable. utah actually has some very good microbrews. you can get 3.2 at the grocery, or high test ( including many international beers) at the liquor store. but it costs a lot more there. but it doesnt take a math genius to adjust your 3.2 to 8.2 with vodka.
The best after ski hang outs in the Midvale Sandy area are Denny's Restaurant or The Arbys If they are running their 5 for $5.95 deal. Other then that try the Porcupine Inn right next to the Lift House Ski Shop
