Alpine Pie Bar at 350 Main: Park City’s New Speakeasy

0

Alpine Pie Bar is such a hidden gem that we’re hesitant to spill the beans. But it’s such a great spot that we just have to spread the news. Below 350 Main, you’ll find the Alpine Pie Bar, a speakeasy serving hand-crafted cocktails with Alpine Distilling spirits and Auntie Em’s pies.

Descend the staircase by the entrance, and sneak through the heavy velvet curtains. There, you’ll find a cozy, intimate space with substantial seating and a gorgeous wood bar. Open from Wednesday to Sunday from 3-10 p.m., Alpine Pie Bar is the ideal spot apres-ski, before a dinner reservation or just an afternoon break. (Psst: In the same space, Alpine also hosts a fabulous Gin Experience, where guests can distill their own gin while enjoying a four-course meal. Find more details HERE.)

Alpine Pie BarThe full bar includes a selection of Alpine’s spirits — vodka, gin, liqueurs and whiskey. If you want to try them all, we suggest the $15 tasting of five of their major spirits.

On a recent visit, we tried the delicious Moon Walker from the cocktail menu (pictured below), which has been featured on Food Network and in the Whiskey Tribune. It’s made with Alpine’s Lafayette Bourbon, amaretto, lemon juice, egg white, aromatic bitters and freshly grated cinnamon. Another refreshing drink is the Thyme to Summit, featuring Alpine’s Summit Gin and Preserve Liquor, fresh thyme, lemon juice, cane syrup and sparkling wine.

Alpine Pie Bar CocktailAlpine Pie Bar also serves locally-made wine and beer, from Old Town Cellars and Uinta Brewing, respectively.

Whichever drink you choose, it’ll be complimented perfectly by a slice of a freshly-baked Auntie Em’s pies. Your server will heat it up for you to enjoy alongside your drink. As a bonus, a piece of cheese made by Gold Creek Farms comes with each slice. (Trust me, it goes really well together!) To bring it all full circle, Gold Creek Farms makes the cheese with ash that comes from Alpine’s whiskey barrels — the perfect, if unexpected pairing, for the pie.

P.S. If you’re a local and/or repeat visitor, mention to the bartender that you’ve been here before, and they’ll have some specials for you. (Wink, wink.)
