The sign has been hanging outside for more than a year, but it wasn’t until this winter Rock & Reilly’s finally opened its doors on Park City’s Main Street. Wedged next to Park City Live and within a tipsy stumble of Flanagan’s, O’Shucks and No Name, Rock & Reilly’s gives a new option for parched patrons on a bar crawling mission.
What began as a West Hollywood pub a few years ago on L.A.’s iconic Sunset Strip has grown into a second location. While the Park City version differs from its Los Angeles counterpart, many of the same concepts made the trek to Utah. Inside, a Prohibition-era speakeasy is twisted with Irish pub grub and dive bar attitude. Live music, a photo booth and a silly-but-addicting ring toss game increase the entertainment value. Plans for an extensive whiskey selection will invigorate the bar choices if all goes well with the DABC. (The L.A. location has nearly 50 types of whiskies, compared to Park City’s meager dozen-or-so.)
Though another bar on Main Street may not seem like breaking news, Rock & Reilly’s is one of the few places to quell your late-night hunger, with food available until 12 a.m. Glorified bar food comes in the form of burgers, sliders, salads and shareable munchies, plus weekly specials that are easy on the wallet. Taco Tuesdays feature $2 street tacos and free karaoke; Wednesdays are reserved for $3 mix n’ match sliders; and Saturday and Sunday include a "Build Your Own Bloody Mary" bar for the ultimate hair of the dog. Also from 3–6 p.m., Monday through Friday, Utah’s version of “appy” hour means half-off any appetizer. Locals are treated to 10 percent off food all other times.
