Late Night Dining Salt Lake City

Let’s be honest. If you’re looking for late night dining in Salt Lake City, you’re not going to find much beyond 10 or 11pm. However, a few of the city’s restaurants stay open just a little later than the others.

The Bayou (645 South State; 801-961-8400) is one of Salt Lake’s most reliably packed restaurant-slash-bars. Serving Cajun cuisine, more than 200 beers, and keeping a consistently busy live jazz schedule, the Bayou thrives. Remarkably, the kitchen stays open until 12:30am, serving a reduced menu after 11:30pm. This is a 21+ establishment.

Ahh Sushi (22 East 100 South; 801-359-6770) is a classic downtown, basement joint that on one side serves sushi, and on the other serves beers. The restaurant makes  food until 11pm, but usually stops seating around 10:45.  If you find yourself facing a wait for a table or a place at the sushi bar, simply grab a beer at the alcohol bar, Oh Shucks!, and nibble on some peanuts while you relax. The fishbowl-shaped beer glasses are enormous. Ahh Sushi runs occasional ½-off specials on rolls, so call ahead to ask if you’re curious. Both the restaurant and bar are 21+ only.

If you happen to be out very late and must eat, Los Betos (1122 South State Street; 801-596-8100) keeps its doors open around the clock. However, this particular Mexican restaurant neither specializes in health food, nor in fresh cuisine. Think huge, slathered burritos, rice, and greasy heaviness.
