Some people claim that Salt Lake City can be a boring place, especially during the week. Frankly, I would have no idea what you are talking about! One of my favorite nightlife spots in Salt Lake City is The Green Pig. Open from 11am- 2am, they sit on the corner of 400 S and University Blvd, just search for it in your Yellow Pages app, and you’ll get there in no time. No matter what you like, there is something for everyone on any given night of the week.
While this is no fine-dining establishment, don’t let that stop you from enjoying anything and everything on the menu. The first time I darkened the doors of The Green Pig, I was skeptical that their food could live up to my friends’ grandiose claims–however, I wasn’t disappointed. Though The Green Pig is a bar, I learned to expect more than just bar food. From their hearty burgers to their specialty salads, I’m up for anything their kitchen cooks.
And if you are feeling like bar food… They have it. Chili Verde Nachos piled high with everything a nacho needs will completely hit the spot, or if you want to get a little down n’ dirty, you can attack their wings, or even score some sliders. They even sport most of this type of food on their late night menu, so you can get your midnight munchies on!
We might have forgotten, but did we mention the food is delicious? Each day there is a $5.99 Lunch Special, which makes it easy to try new menu items while meeting up with friends on a quick lunch break, or even a more extended day out on the town. Though they change the special daily, we are a witness that everything on the menu is finger-lickin’ good.
Saturday and Sunday Breakfast Buffet
Get your brunch on every Saturday morning, or Sunday Funday, with a delicious $10-$12 brunch buffet from 10am-2pm. With Bloody Mary’s and Mimosas at only $3, you can leisurely enjoy your morning while recovering from the night before.
The Green Pig looks and feels like your typical run-of-the-mill pub. With beer signs, a large bar, and informal stage, your shoulders loosen up a few notches just by walking in the door. Their outdoor patio lets you enjoy the summer weather as you lean back and watch people go by as you sip on your preferred beverage (of which they have the standard options, plus a few fun specialty cocktails). Dozens of TVs hang from the ceiling so you can keep your eye on your favorite sports team, or check out breaking news. But no matter what day it is, you can always find fun with whatever weekly event they have going on.
On Mondays, Thursdays, AND Fridays, you can check out local live bands every single week!
Mondays feature a night-long lives open mic blues jam run by the West Temple Taildraggers. You can come out, be a part of the supportive crowd, sign up, and jam with other talented artists, or even grab a partner and dance along in front of the stage!
Thursdays and Fridays feature different local bands, and allows for a nice intimate performance setting to encourage up-and-coming local performers from around the Salt Lake area. The Green Pig Facebook page posts daily updates of which band is playing.
Twice a week you can do your best to show off and impress your friends with your smarts, though it might not be as effective after a few beers. Start off your week the right way on Sunday Nights with Adult Trivia starting at 7pm, or get your mid-week brains going on Wednesdays at 7pm with The Trivia Factory.
