High West whiskey – available Sundays

First up, don’t panic! Most good restaurants and bars are open on both Sundays and holidays, and yes you can get a drink on these days too. Moreover, places like grocery and convenience stores are also generally open too, and retail products such as beer and seltzers, up to 5% ABV. You can read our full guide to Utah liquor laws here.

What is closed on Sundays and holidays are our state ran liquor stores.

This guide is focused on where and how to purchase the stronger stuff to go, on both state and federal holidays and Sundays in Utah.

Where to buy wine and cider in Utah on holidays and Sundays

Lastly, the same rules apply to wine and cider manufacturers who can also sell their products on holidays and weekends.

Also, another lesser known point is that any restaurant or bar can reseal a wine or cider for you to go – provided a portion is consumed on premise. This is per Utah code 32B-5-307, section 3d. The law does not specify how much a party has to consume before recorkage. It can be as little as a standard sample taste / 1oz a sommelier might pour you to approve of the wine you ordered. So you can also buy wine to go from restaurants and bars in this capacity too. Provided they understand this section of Utah liquor code.
