JAM - Salt Lake City
05 January, 2014
In the 1800s the hillside below the Utah State Capitol was blossoming with fruit trees that local Mormons harvested to make marmalade. The orchard was cut down in the early 1900s to make way for diverse, turn-of-the-century, eclectic style Victorian mansions and Gothic revival homes creating Salt Lake City's Marmalade District.
In 2006, a 1950s gas station located in the Marmalade District was renovated in order to BRING THE FRUIT BACK TO THE MARMALADE, but this time the fruit was Salt Lake's thriving gay community!
JAM opened its doors on October 4, 2007 serving the Gay community only beer because of a dispute with a well-known polygamist family living near the bar. After a 16-month battle with the family and Salt Lake City, JAM was finally awarded a liquor license and the party began!
JAM's handsome, friendly staff, tasty cocktails and clean, smoke-free atmosphere has earned it the title of Utah's BEST GAY BAR five years in a row! JAM is known as the place to be by both gay and straight nightlifers and partygoers alike.
Open six days a week, JAM offers locals and out-of-town visitors plenty of options to stay amused and entertained all week. Their state-of-the-art sound and video system plays the BIGGEST dance hits nightly in addition to a regular schedule of weekly events that include a chic wine night, a brain-busting pub quiz night, and two spectacular superstar karaoke nights. On the weekends, their award winning DJs energize dancers in the BOOM BOOM ROOM late into the night while the social set enjoys the large patio and outdoor bars.
JAM is known for its sleek New York style loft look and feel. JAM has won many awards, but they are most proud of being voted nicest bathrooms in Salt Lake City!
