The sound of LIVE acoustic music always fits nicely in Salt Lake City ~ especially on a weeknight with the Lake Effect vibe taking any edge off the work day! You'll feel it hit you as soon as you open the giant door into this historic building. Enjoy a fantastic dinner, the city's best collection of adult spirits, and catch Jim Fish sharing great Americana covers with his contagious original music too. Think Prine, Stapleton, and Petty raising shot glasses with Waylon! Cheers ~ he'll be bending strings and singing things till 9 PM!
