Gracie's | Shots In The Dark | Salt Lake City | Salt Lake City Weekly
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

Go with a gastropub



OK, here’s a tough one: You’re stuck on an island, and for whatever reason you get to choose one Salt Lake City bar to join you. Which do you choose? (p.s. strip clubs and liquor stores don’t count; that’s too easy.) I think I’d go with a gastropub, essentially a bar that serves high-end beer and food. That’s why Gracie’s (326 S. West Temple) would be a good choice. Besides a kick-ass food and drink menu, there’s a slew of pool tables and TVs, multiple bars, a massive outdoor patio and, my personal favorite, cornhole (beanbag toss). No doubt all of these things would keep you sane. Which is exactly why in the film Castaway, Tom Hanks would have been so psyched to find this place—way more than finding a volleyball.
