party in Salt Lake City

Salt Lake City is a town brimming with history and engaged in a thriving creative community. Host to the Altitude Design Summit, many bloggers and design enthusiasts recently traveled to this mountain west mecca and experienced a touch of the city’s classic charm. It’s a great town to throw a party in! I love the insight Melissa Esplin gives below in sharing her favorite spots to party in the city (plus, she’s gorgeous, right!).

Vosen’s Bread Paradise – I feel like I’m visiting another country when I step into Vosen. I can never leave without picking up a Berliner.

MisC and The Green Ant – Salt Lake has some of the best thrift/vintage shopping this side of the Missis-sippi. MisC is very well-curated with the best-of in vintage styles (often times never-worn items!) at fantastic prices. You can ÿnd many items for women with a small selection of menswear and childrens. The Green Ant is akin to the vintage version of Design Within Reach. Another well-curated vintage shop featuring home goods, many from the mid-twentieth century.

Ruby Snap – These cookies rock my socks o°. Tammi, owner of Ruby Snap, only uses the freshest ingredients & has a real talent for blending flavors to create a one-of-a-kind party in your mouth (who would have thought coconut, curry and carrot could make the best cookie in the world?). Cookies are available served à la mode in the summertime.

Family Chocolates – There’s nothing like a cup of Hatch’s dark hot chocolate in the middle of a freezing winter day and their salted caramel chocolates are killer!

Twilight Concert Series – No, it’s not some Stephanie Meyer fan club meeting. Salt Lake puts on a free concert series each summer and they are amazing. The Decemberists, Beirut, The Black Keys, Chromeo, Girl Talk & Modest Mouse have all performed in years past.
