This Utah Pub Is Located In The Most Unexpected Location And You’ll Want To Visit
There’s nothing quite like a friendly hole-in-the-wall place that serves up tasty bar food and beer. This cozy spot is located in the most unexpected location…right next to the oil refinery.
When we say that it's right next door to the oil refinery, we're not kidding. Garage on Beck literally sits right in front of the Tesoro Refinery on I-89, north of Capitol Hill.
The address is 1199 Beck Street, Salt Lake City. It's a bar, so you must be 21 years old to visit.
The first time owner Bob McCarthy saw the building that would become Garage on Beck, it was a sad, dark little bar. But it had a friendly group of regulars, and Bob thought there might be something there to preserve.
Looking around at the junkyard and oil refinery, he had a vision of a juke-joint, roadhouse kind of place, where everyone feels welcome. With his experience (he's also the owner of Stoneground), and his team of restaurant pros, he took on the project.
You'll find that Garage on Beck is a cozy, friendly place with amazing food and great music.
It's a great place to meet up with friends, hang out and enjoy the evening.
You can dine on the outdoor patio if it's warm enough.
This is one of the best patios in the city!
Tuesday is for tacos. After 5 PM, tacos are just $1/each.
Whiskey Wednesday includes $3 whiskey shots all day and half-priced burgers after 5 PM.
The burgers are to die for. There are seven different varieties to choose from, and they're all delicious.
If you're looking for comfort food, look no further than the meatloaf...it's divine.
For a tasty snack, try the sludge fries, covered in habanero molasses sauce with green onions, blue cheese and bacon.
The fried Mormon potatoes are little bundles of deliciousness.
They're made with shredded potatoes, cheddar cheeses, bacon and scallions, then "baptized" in hot oil and served with "worthy Utah ranch."
There's plenty of live music here, from rockabilly to jazz.
to see who's playing.
Visit Garage on Beck Monday through Saturday from 11 AM to 1 AM; Sunday from 10:30 AM to 1 AM.
