Skiers treating Salt Lake City as a hub—with too many world-class ski destinations to tick off the bucket list to choose just one—will be happy to know that the nightlife scene has stepped up its game. This city can handle after-hour appetites in proportion to the après après, post bar munchies. 

For those looking to re- and pre-fuel after/in preparation for a leg-burning day in Utah's finest blower pow, check out these suggestions via our friends at Visit Salt Lake, organized by hipster friendly (1-4, sorry Anthony Bourdain) and the classics (5-8).

1. Avenues Proper

Go here to grab a smoked meatloaf sandwich, the Proper Mac & Cheese made with Irish cheddar or to satisfy a post-bar craving for chicken and waffles. The best liquid refreshment is one of their many Utah brews at this rare brew pub that also serves beer from competitors. Open Friday and Saturday until midnight.

2. Rye

Adjacent to the Urban Lounge, Rye offers starters like roasted edamame or pork belly lettuce wraps. Go for a rice bowl (like the bulgogi bowl, the Peking duck bowl or the poke bowl) or maybe take a more decadent approach with the truffled mac & cheese or the waffle & whiskey with house potatoes. Open until 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

3. Eva

Eva specializes in small plates like toasted Brussels sprouts, crispy polenta and grilled asparagus, which are just gateways to slow-roasted steak bruschetta, spinach and potato gnocchi or a wild mushroom pizza. Open Monday-Thursday until 11 p.m. and Friday and Saturday until midnight.

4. Finca

Salt Lake’s flag-bearer for Spanish tapas, a.k.a. the ideal late night food. After all, it’s the ultimate small plate meal, easy to share and easy to order more if appetites are larger. Finca serves up more than two dozen choices, from Fideos (toasted noodles clams, chorizo, crispy artichokes, sherry cream, lemon) to Piquillo’s (braised beef, stuffed in piquillo peppers), Pato (duck breast, fresh figs, black pepper honey, pistachio-mint pistou) to Camote (harrisa glazed yams, cardamom yogurt, pickled candied walnuts). Not to mention a deep list of Spanish wines. Friday and Saturday until midnight.

5. Spitz

Offering Mediterranean street food, Spitz is famed for its Döner Kebab and variations, such as the Street Cart Döner, with garlic aioli, fired lavash chips, romaine, cabbage, tomatoes and a choice of lamb, beef, chicken, falafel or vegetarian. Street Cart Fries and an order of crispy garbanzos with olives should stave off any remaining hunger pangs. Open until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.

6. The Pie

Consider the ultimate late night food at the ultimate Salt Lake pizzeria, The Pie. This is where to score a Stromboli (pepperoni, onions, green peppers and Italian sausage), Xtreme Veggie (fresh spinach, artichoke hearts, Sicilian spiced tomatoes, red onions, feta and mozzarella) or a Hawaii Pie-O (smoked ham, pineapple, marinara sauce and mozzarella). Monday through Thursday until 1 a.m.; Friday and Saturday until 3 a.m.; Sunday until 11 p.m.

7. The Bayou

The Bayou is where late-nighters share popcorn crawfish with tomato-chipotle sauce before biting into a Bayou Burger served with caramelized onion, stout mustard and chipotle aioli. Their buddies might be more interested in spicy chicken and sausage gumbo with rice or fried catfish linguini. Open every night until 12:30 a.m.

7. Gourmandise The Bakery

For the sweet tooth skiers, this is the destination. Choose from croissant bread pudding, lemon mousse cake or a cannoli. Open until 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
