Super Bowl LII is upon us. It will see the reigning champions, the New England Patriots take on the Philadelphia Eagles in Minneapolois. Justin Timberlake is performing the halftime show, so there could be another major cultural incident (Left Shark, Janet Jackson.) Being in Utah, we have little stake in the game, but we can certainly get behind snacks, beverages, & silly commercials.
While Park City has an array of watering-holes (See our Complete Guide to Après skiing in Park City) with some decidedly better than others for taking in the big game.
Whether you are staying in your vacation home or condo to watch the game, or are wanting to mix it up at a sports bar, we’ve compiled a list of the best spots to take in Super Bowl LII in Park City, Utah.
Collie’s Sports Bar & Grill is a family owned and operated bar and restaurant on lower Main Street in Historic Downtown Park City. The name says it all. They are the only true sports bar in Old Town. They have 25 TV’s and we can guarantee they will all be playing one game on Sunday evening. As you can tell by the photo, this is a very friendly bar for those looking to cheer on the New England Patriots. Collie’s also has all the perfect food for a Super Bowl game: smoked hot wings, chips and queso, pulled pork nachos, & fried pickles. Located at: 738 Main Street.
Butcher’s Chop House is just across the way from Collie’s on Park Ave. (catty-corner from the world famous High West Distillery). If you are wanting bar food with a steakhouse twist, this is the one for you. They have lobster nachos, buffalo chicken dip, classic shrimp cocktail, bleu cheese stuffed dates, and more. Grab a seat early in the bar area if you are wanting to watch the game! Located at: 751 Main Street.
If you are looking for something off Main, head over to Boneyard Saloon & Kitchen. With an extensive beer list and great food this place will be hopping on Sunday. With plenty of TV’s there isn’t a bad seat for viewing the game. We recommend their colossal yardbird wings, fried Brussels sprouts Caesar, jambalaya, or any of their delicious sandwiches. Located at 1251 Kearns Blvd.
Not feeling the bar scene? No worries! Grab a slice and a beer at Este Pizza to enjoy the game while dining in, or give them a call to order out for some of the best pizza west of the Mississippi. We recommend: Lasagna pizza, The Ol’Vortman, and the buffalo chicken, because what Super Bowl is complete without some form of buffalo chicken? Located at 1781 Sidewinder Drive.

Utah might be an unexpected place to find one of the best craft distilleries in the country, but High West Distillery, located in the heart of downtown Park City, has made its mark nationwide with its exceptional array of high-quality spirits. During your stay,
enjoy this throwback to Old West times by taking one of the High West Distillery tours and then grabbing a delicious meal at their on-site saloon and restaurant.
Utah was home to an abundance of distilleries in the 1800s, many of them owned by Mormons including Brigham Young, but by 1870, all of them had closed their doors, leaving the Beehive State without a legal distillery for over a century.
That all changed in 2007 when distiller David Perkins opened High West in Park City, with the goal of creating the perfect Rocky Mountain whiskey. Hundreds of people visit its location in the historic Beggs House and National Garage on Park Avenue every year to take the High West Distillery tours and get a taste of Park City’s signature spirits.

The tours, which are offered at 12:00, 1:15 and 2:30 daily, give visitors a chance to see how High West’s small batch spirits are made, including a look at their 250 gallon copper still and a sample of some of their offerings.
Space on the High West Distillery tours is extremely limited, and reservations are highly recommended. For availability, call 435-649-8300.
High West offers more than a dozen of its famous whiskeys, each one with a slightly different flavor. Ranging from their Rendezvous Rye blend to their Campfire Whiskey – possibly the world’s only blend of Scotch, bourbon and rye whiskeys – there is something to fit every palate. For those with a preference for lighter spirits, High West also offers its 7000’ Vodka, named for the exact elevation of the bar in their saloon.
There’s more than just spirits at High West Distillery as the attached saloon and restaurant provide a tasty Western inspired gastropub experience.
