Drinking in Ogden

Utah has some different drinking laws than other states. You can't order a pitcher of beer by yourself: You have to have at least one other person with you. Liquor is metered instead of free poured, so if you order a drink with 2 types of liquor in it, you'd need to get 2 shots; 3 ingredients would require 3 shots; etc. If you see a "Private club for members only" sign on a bar, that's a hold over from a pre-2000 Olympic anti-barhopping law that required people to be members at bars. Even if such a sign is up, you can go in and have a drink and don't need to be a member.


There are several bars on Historic 25th Street, including the famous Kokomo Club, which was featured in Jack Kerouak's book Visions of Cody. There is also Roosters, a classy brewpub.

Some restaurants also feature a full bar, but since this is Utah, not nearly as many serve alcohol as might be expected elsewhere.


If you're just looking for coffee, the local favorite is Ogden-based chain Grounds for Coffee has three locations in town. The most popular is on 30th and Harrison.
