Make it a date night
You’ve got two tickets for a show at the CenterPoint Theatre, now all you need is a dinner reservation! Here are our nearby favorites:
- Hug-Hes Cafe. If you’re wanting a nice sit-down experience where you can get some good dinner and a couple of cocktails prior to the show then make your reservation at Hug-Hes.
- Fuji Sushi. If you like sushi then look no further than Fuji Sushi. With more rolls than you can count, there is something for everyone.
Both of these restaurants are located 0.2 miles from the theatre so it’ll be easy to head right over after dinner. CenterPoint has a small concession stand so you can get a little treat and some drinks. Our favorite is the caramel chocolate-dipped pretzel rods from Mrs. Cavanaugh’s Chocolates.
If you’re looking for a nightcap after the theatre, without heading into Salt Lake City or Ogden, you can head slightly south to the Downunder Club in Bountiful (open until 1:00 am) or north to Stockmans Bar in Layton (open until 2:00 am). Both are dive bars with a fun mix of locals, pool tables, and music.
