ok bar, bad service 10/8/2010

I went to my x wifes place with some friends and played pool. the music was ok and the tables where so so but the bar tenders are very grumpy and rude. I dont recomend this place to anyone, there are much better bars for less $ than my x wifes place. more

A joke with no punchline. 10/4/2010

New in town? Looking for a dive bar? Stay away from this place! The owner is nice, but some of the people that work for her, wow. Yes, reality is a place a varying opinions. Moving on.... This place is very sad. You got a grey fox from the east coast who practicably lives there. Thought he was a fun guy, until you realize that he tends to short change people and talks massive amounts of sh!t. Or the guy from the north west who has a passive aggressive problem. Talk about pent up rage. If I hear "I, KNOW.....pause......DUDE" combined with a stark look, one more time... And some of the people who hang out there. Radiate tons of loser energy. Unfortunately, Twilight Bar is no better. The girl with the annoying voice, ugh. I guess big boobs don't get you everywhere. Don't get me started on it's patrons. Good luck: There is nothing fun in this city. Nothing but sad, loons, right wing nut jobs and superfluous superiority complex from a nutty religion (and one religion others consider a cult). One might think I'm being negative. I think my warning is positive. Keep driving... more

Great people 1/25/2010

The bar is unique and an essential for any out-of state, non-LDS folks-preventing one from losing your shit in this republican, right-wing, Gay hating (what kind of asshat, backwards poltroon is so fearful of a person who happens to want to have a beautiful relationship with another somebody who is the same sex, so freakin what), Red State, flipside anal sex freaks "cause according to LDS sanctions, buttsex will sufice within the LDS code of virgin status. I met my wife katy there, and had the best time of my life. Still miss her. I also met some of the greatest souls ever; Katy Boog, Jesse, Travis, Adam, Amy, Hayes Family, Melissa, Jerry. Great Place, good people, a place to get away from all the b.s. Pros: Great bartenders, Katy Boog Cons: you will probably trip over the stairs more

Good Times 9/18/2009

I came for a birthday party and decided that I love this place. The drinks are cheap and I love the staff. Plus it is a bonus to have a patio that I can drink and smoke on. What more could I ask for???? Another plus is I was able to have a good time without putting up with the usual D-Bags. I will be back. This is one of the best kept secrets of Salt Lake City bars.... Loves and Kiss OXOX Pros: Smoking Patio Cons: Utah Liquor Laws more

Warm and Welcoming 8/21/2009

The experience I had during my last three visits to my new favorite place was different than I expected. I heard intellectual conversation presented with extreme humor. This is a rare quality I haven't ever found outside the corner bar that is tried and true, a staple of the community. This might sound trite but it's that place were everybody knows your name. I found a lot of scuddle butt about town concerning this bar, it's what lead me to it to begin with. I mean hey, if they are talking about you, you must be doing something right and this place is. Here's to meeting you in one the most intriguing bars I've been in since my college days in Milwaukee. Signed Old Hat Pros: Never dreamed this bar had such a great history! Cons: A little clickie but what bar isn't? more

Low Class, No Girls, Huge Lesbian Bartenders. 3/13/2009

If you like no service, low class staff and over-pricing then this is the place for you. If you are new to drinking and have never been to a good bar then maybe you should check this place for future reference as a place to avoid. Pros: Lot's of dudes. Cons: No women more

I guess the people are just to cool for me?!? 2/4/2009

This bar at one point was just awesome. The bar tenders are still awesome. It is just now over crowded with a dip-s**t crowd that hangs out there. I was a regular for over 3 years until it slowly became the IN place. Now if you go on weekends you have to wait 5-10 minutes for a drink and while doing so you are forced to listen to a bunch of "I'm to cool for you" people spew cr*p into your ear. It has just become to trendy for me. Drinks are reasonably priced though. If you do decide to go... go Mon. trough Thurs. before 5 because they have free pool and there is rarely anyone there. more

Sucky help. Sucky people. 11/25/2008

I went in after reading about the "awesome bartenders" where they all know youre name and are so friendly. WHATEVER!! The stupid girl behind the bar mad eme the WORST bloody mary I have ever had. And then over charged me for it!! Thank god I was able to bring in my 18 year old friend though!! They are really crappy at spotting those ID's ha ha ha ha!!! I wouldn't go there again if you PAID me! Pros: They are horrible at checking ID's Cons: Awful drinks, bitchy help, coke being done in the bathroom. more

The Best 5/19/2008

This is my favorite bar. The bartenders will know you by name, the people are friendly and you rarely see the sexijen types at this place. If you like lifting weights, popping your collar or anything involving Greek letters stay away. If you like down-to-earth people, friendly conversations and a kick (butt) bloody mary, this is the place for you. The bar is never too crowded and the abundance of pool tables is appreciated, also 75 cents per game is cheaper than most places. The outdoor patio is very nice for the warm summer nights and the cheap drinks are what keeps me coming back. The only things I would improve are to get a better dart board and start taking tabs as this is a cash only bar and the ATM gets $2.50 for doing nothing. Pros: Pool tables, patio, cheap drinks, good scene Cons: Cash only, dartboard could be revamped more

To sexyjen75 2/8/2007

Judging by your name, you're the type we'd see at "Greenstreet", where people go for attention and to be noticed. Ex Wife's is the most comfortable bar I've ever been to. The people there are completely genuine and I've RARELY seen a fight (only when idiot "new-comers" become belligerent ). I met some of my closest friends (including boyfriend) there. They are great unique and interesting people. Rarely do you see the phony EMO/Trendy crowd. It's AWESOME! Also - You will RARELY find a Republican A$$ Hat in this Bar. I'm sure you just don't know much about politics, but A LOT about being "sexi" though. That's ok... Pros: People, Pool, Beer, PEOPLE Cons: Cash only, Cold Toilet Seats in the Winter... more

Only Bar Like It in SLC 10/29/2006

I'e been visiting the ex-wifes for some time now, and I have to say that the reason I keep goig back is that the people there are awesome. Not justthe bar staff, but all of the customers as well.Some of my best friends I met there. Really, thedrinks are inexpensive, and the juke box is killer! (Ween, Atom and his package, Charles Mingus, Dead Kennedys, ect. ect.) Oh,and I've never really seen anyone ever fight there. Very chill. Pros: Great for a budget, love the bartenders- especially Carol Cons: Parking, Cash only with crappy atm, smokey when crowed more

republicans? 10/20/2006

who are you? clearly we didn't want you in the bar if that is the impression you got of us. almost no real patrons drink budwiser by the way. as for the republican comment if you are an extreme hippy then relative to the usuall customers you might be, uh, further left but, also more smelly then the regulars. be assured that the right is not welcome in this bar. more

ummm... right. 10/27/2005

if you love camo, bright orange, buttweiser, and clueless republicans then this place is for you! my girlfriends and i went here on recommenation of citysearch and it is bogus! yuk! i hope this saves someone else from making the same mistake we did. on a positive note, they do have "beer". no wonder his wife left. more

x patron of xwifes 6/1/2005

Pros: pool,darts, atmosphere, dukebox Cons: you wont go home more

where the working class go to play 1/1/2003

When I am all done working, and just want to go somewhere fun and great, I go to X-wifes place!! Not only is the service served with a smile, the drinks are inexpensive. I was very impressed that this was one of the only bars in Utah NOT to raise their prices for the 2002 Olympics!! Says something about the bar itself. The employees actually care about the customers. It is a bar "where everybody knows your name". Or at least you WANT them to!! more

  • The Scene
    The clientele is varied: You can find all types hanging out at the bar or shooting pool. Five pool tables line the north side of the club, while two dart boards, the bar and a smattering of tables occupy the south side. All kinds of music can be found in the jukebox, though it's a rare night when you don't hear Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin or Bob Marley. One of Salt Lake's best-kept secrets is behind the club: A spacious and very comfortable patio.

    The Draw
    Regulars come for the cocktails, while newbies are drawn in by the quirky name. Drinks are affordable and stiffly poured. Order one of the best bloody marys in town then slip back onto the patio for some laid-back conversation. This is a no-nonsense kind of bar--so patrons know to check their pretensions and attitude at the door.
