Visit These Park City Businesses on Main Street

Posted in Events in Park City, Food, Uncategorized | Comments Off

Park City BusinessesHome to countless shops, restaurants and galleries, Park City’s vibrant Main Street is truly the hub of our posh mountain town. With a goal of always staying trendy, change is perpetual as new Park City businesses revitalize historic buildings. During your visit, check out some of Main Street’s latest offerings.

O.P. Rockwell

A music hall with “outlaw roots,” O.P. Rockwell has already had success in attracting national acts to downtown Main Street with a trendy, upscale vibe that invokes thoughts of the town’s history.

While taking in a concert, or on any night of the week, grab a drink at O.P. Rockwell’s speakeasy-style cocktail lounge. The classic leather couches and low ambient lighting will take you back to the building’s 1889 roots as a popular dance hall.

Upcoming shows at O.P. Rockwell

Fletchers

Quickly becoming the town’s hot spot, Fletchers provides a great atmosphere for dinner, drinks, or both. Fletcher’s tagline “Eat. Drink. Lounge” perfectly sums up the mood of one of the newest Park City businesses.

Chef Scott Boberek has put together a varied menu of delicious small and large plates that combined with a tantalizing cocktail list are great for unwinding after a day on the slopes. Checking out the downstairs Library Lounge with its comfy couches is highly recommended.

The Parkite Building

Newly renovated, this Main Street building formerly known as the Main Street Mall has reopened as a new shopping hub, home to a number of Park City businesses.

Lululemon, UGG boots, Robin’s Jean and ski apparel shop Gorsuch are the Park City businesses headlining the Parkite’s offerings, giving it a classy vibe that has attracted visitors and locals alike. As you peruse Main Street’s many shopping options, make sure to include the Parkite on your list.

Grace Clothiers

High fashion has come to Park City with the opening of Grace Clothiers at 751 Main Street. Owner Laura Montecot-Furth, a veteran of the retail industry, opened the boutique last month with the goal of selling clothes appropriate for Park City that would still be fashionable in New York and Los Angeles.

With trendy offerings for both men and women at an affordable price, Grace Clothiers provides a personal shopping experience that isn’t to be missed.

As you make plans to check out these new Park City businesses, use Park City Lodging to find the perfect place to stay. We have properties on Main Street within walking distance of all of its shops and restaurants, as well as offerings at all three resorts. Let us help you plan an amazing vacation!

That means you can start on the slopes in the morning and ski until 8 p.m. every night. Don’t miss out on this chance to experience the stars and the slopes with some exhilarating Park City night skiing.

Park City Mountain Resort will have three lifts, three runs, and a terrain park open nightly until the end of ski season. The three lifts that will be operational until 8 p.m. are PayDay, First Time and 3 Kings.

Whether you want to take an exciting run down one of the three slopes or show off some tricks at the terrain park, Park City Mountain Resort provides that opportunity after the sun goes down.

When you’re finished with your night skiing, you will still be able to grab a bite to eat at one of the fine restaurants in Park City. From sun up to sun down, Park City has all aspects of your vacation covered!
