The Garage on Beck • This roadhouse grill and music venue, on Beck Street at the northern edge of Salt Lake City, is a hidden gem in an industrial landscape. It has a rustic interior and a huge outdoor patio with a big fire pit and plenty of seating. Surprisingly, the views of the North Salt Lake refinery in the back are part of the draw. The bar also stands out because it offers the ultimate trifecta: homemade food from chicken and waffles to funeral potato appetizers live music throughout the week and great cocktails, such as the ice-cold mojitos garnished with fresh mint from the bar's garden.
