Utah may not be known for the bar scene, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t gems in the town of Salt Lake City. Take Purgatory, a place where you can go for a drink, a meal, or both. They opened in 2017 nearby a mortuary which will make you think twice now about its name. But hey, if this is where I need to go to cleanse my soul then order me up a few drinks. Cause I’m going to enjoy this place the best way I can, at the bar.
That’s the main thing you’ll notice when you enter the establishment. But along the wall and toward the back, there are tables for your dining needs. And for those looking for libations and fun, well, there’s plenty of bar games inside and out in their open area. The place is full of energy. And since it’s still relatively new, you and your friends may still find room here for a get together without waiting forever to waited on. We didn’t. After we ordered, the drinks came out fast, then the food. The portions were large, especially when we were looking for small late night bites. We got toast for goodness sakes. What we got were full on dinner meals. This place was definitely not your average bar food kinda place. That’s pretty cool. Just gotta be mindful next time I order food here.
I hope this place doesn’t get too popular because I do want to come back without dealing with elbow to elbow crowds.
