We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

Circle Lounge

So many party options


1 comment

I’m not sure what it is, but there’s something about Saturdays at Circle Lounge (328 S. State) that makes me want to attempt to break the world record for most fist pumps—employing the “Jersey Roll”—in one night. It could be the $4 Red Bull vodkas or the $2 Coors drafts. Either way, when the weekend rolls around, this downtown spot is consistently packed and offers two different ways to get loose. The massive patio features private huka booths and hip-hop video mixing with DJ J-Rock and DJ Jello; back inside, party-goers can fuel up on sushi and cut it up to house and electro music with DJ Mad Mike and Nathan Thrills. With so many party options, you’re bound to leave with a bad case of fist-pump elbow. (Photos by Nicole Jaatoul)
