With the owners of The Urban Lounge having opened Rye Diner & Drinks next door in 2014, you can now think of pre-music and post-music visits to Rye as necessary bookends to a night at The Urban Lounge in Salt Lake City. Before the music—ranging from electronic, rock and metal—enjoy munchies like shoyu fried chicken and truffled mac & cheese, and afterward, duck back into Rye for craft cocktails like the Smoking Jacket, made with (what else?) bourbon. And with recent adjustments to the Urban Lounge's schedule—including early and late shows being booked in the same night, and frequent free concerts—as well as the option to reserve a VIP booth so you can have a comfortable spot from which to watch the stage, there are more reasons than ever to visit.
