Located in the heart of Salt Lake City, and situated right next door to sister restaurant Ivy & Varley, Varley is a craft cocktail bar and lounge for the downtown executive, urban local, and out-of-town guest seeking an innovative approach to high-end cocktail culture without all the pretense.
Led by Bryan Borreson and Vaughn Carrick of the Realine Group, Varley maintains the same modern aesthetic as Ivy & Varley with a little added edge. Varley is the perfect setting to share in drinks and dialogue for both the most discernible of cocktail connoisseurs and those simply seeking a cold craft beer or pour on the rocks. Also, if you’re hungry, Varley conveniently shares the same kitchen as Ivy & Varley, offering an exclusively curated menu designed to pair with the full selection of drink options available.

Varley is a 21+ Establishment

    It would be good to go out and drink here but don’t let the food menu fool you into coming here if you don’t drink, and definitely do not order the salmon belly blt 😭 had to send the whole thing back; it was a wad of fishy salmon meat with two pieces of bacon on an extremely dense “ English muffin” I can’t even believe how bad it was. The Brussels sprouts were good, the soup of the day was tomato basil; it was barley cambells quality and they drizzled mayo over the top :( not the best experience but the setting of the bar was nice.

    Nice business dinner. Mondays are quiet and easy to get a reservation. Food is somewhat tapas style. Great appetizers including brussels sprouts as well as charcuterie and mussels. Prices are reasonable. Many fancy cocktails to choose from.

    It was almost too loud to talk to each other, the drinks were really good, the food was ok. It’s not a place for a quick meal or drink.

    Great service but the most mediocre of foods. Disappointed. The shrimp and grits was terrible.

    Serves a broad spectrum of craft cocktails with something for every taste: sweet, dry, smoky or brown goods. Menu is likewise, ranging from vegetarian/vegan entrees to buffalo tartare for your inner Neanderthal. Service is attentive, friendly yet unobtrusive. Decor is a striking blend of what seem like Art Deco and Pop Art movements. Recommended for dates and other special occasions.

    I really enjoyed this place. The waitress we had was great, friendly, prompt, & attentive. I did think at times the place was rather dark with the DJ music late at night a little too loud. Perhaps it was the timing of my dinner (late Saturday night) crossing over when it became a bar or something. Regardless, I would recommend this place and definitely be back. The drinks are phenomenal.

    Slow service. This was the second time at Varley and we had the same experience before. Food was ok. DJ in a restaurant was loud enough we had to talk louder than normal. Seems like they’re confused. Is it a club? Is it a cocktail bar/lounge? We’ll likely not go back.

    The venue is nice and staff was friendly, but it feels more like a cocktail lounge. I ordered a grilled chicken salad, and the greens tasted like salad leftovers. It was really bad. I mentioned it to staff, and they just said they’d let the kitchen know so that they don’t give that to any other people. So, I still paid $22 for a pretty icky salad. If I went back, I’d just go for drinks and a chat.
