Pickleball cidery gets liquor license; Level Crossing gets new location — and more Utah business updates

Utah small business news from near and far.

(Rick Egan | The Salt Lake Tribune) Pickleball courts at Second Summit Hard Cider in Millcreek, on Thursday, March 2, 2023. The cidery now has a full liquor license.

Second Summit Hard Cider gets full liquor license

While Second Summit Hard Cider Company’s pickleball courts had a soft opening in spring, the Millcreek establishment’s limited manufacturing license allowed them to run only a tasting room for their cider, said Joe Bott, director of operations with Second Summit.

But now that Second Summit has a full liquor license, the cidery at 4010 S. Main St. can serve any type of alcohol within Utah’s pouring constraints, including cider, beer and cocktails, Bott said.

Drinks can be consumed anywhere in the bar and on the patio, Bott said, including on the pickleball courts, which means patrons can play a game with a cold drink in their hand. There’s also pingpong and cornhole, as well as yoga on the pickleball courts, live music and trivia.

Bott said that Second Summit plans to release its first ciders in July.

Chielo Vintage

Chielo Vintage is a dreamy new vintage clothing store in Salt Lake City located at 1346 S. 2100 East, in the growing enclave of local shops that can be found just west of Foothill Drive.

Owner Chelcia Talavera said her store features a highly curated selection of soft, feminine clothing with a 1990s and early 2000s aesthetic that can help you “express your truest self, the divine you, the goddess within.”

Talavera’s store opened at the end of April, near fellow vintage businesses Love Street Salvage and Found N Kept. She said the name Chielo is a combination of the Japanese word “chi,” meaning life force, and the Spanish word “cielo,” meaning sky or heaven. Together, “chielo” means something akin to “inner goddess energy,” she said.

She hopes to create a small collection of her own of made-to-order pieces as she continues to grow Chielo Vintage. Talavera also wants to collaborate with other makers and artists and “create something beautiful together. And make Salt Lake a place where people look to from other places and see, oh, look what they’re creating there, look what they’re doing there.”
