We all enjoy the finer things in life, and if you have reached the stage in your own journey where you have come to the realization that you actually DESERVE luxury, this guide to a luxury journey to Park City is made just for you! Offering shopping tips and advice on the best restaurants in town, we’ve combed the city seeking out the best of the best, and when you choose Park City Vacation Rentals for your vacation home away from home, the luxuries continue from sunup to sundown!
Food Is the Greatest Luxury
Park City is home to a host of world-class restaurants, many of which we have mentioned before but bear repeating. Riverhorse, for example, is at the top of every foodie’s bucket list for excellent reasons. Offering modern cuisine exquisitely prepared and top-notch service that ALWAYS seems to get it right, you can’t help but feel like royalty when dining in this special spot on Main Street.
A fine meal is truly a great luxury only to be topped by the opulence of a simply sensational sip of wine (or whiskey, beer, or even your favorite handcrafted cocktail) found in these splendid spots! Sample the delights found at Old Town Cellars, located at 408 Main Street and billing themselves as the official wine of après in Park City. Offering a selection of wines sourced from some of the top wine regions in the country and blended right here in Park City, these mountain blends will hit your taste buds with a blast of flavor. For those who prefer their extravagances to be a little harder, the High West Distillery at 703 Park Avenue is where you should be! Named Distiller of the Year in 2016, their whiskeys and barrel-finished cocktails go down smooth and easy. Finally, when nothing satisfies like a cold brew, Wasatch Brewery at 250 Main Street has exactly what you desire. Offering a large selection of craft brews designed to please even the pickiest of drinkers, a cold beer sipped at Wasatch is one of life’s more simple luxuries!
Generally, we follow a good dinner with a night at the theater, and although Park City is famous for its Eccles Center and its historic Egyptian Theater, both are closed at the moment due to the pandemic. So instead, we are going to guide you to some high-end window shopping to explore the most luxurious of experiences, jewelry shopping in Park City! Pick yourself up something glittery at Baranof Jewelers, where their classic selection of rings, earrings, bracelets, and other pieces have been the cause of envious neighbors and friends for years.
Art for Your Soul
There’s just something wonderful about walking into an art gallery and exploring the beauty that people have created, perhaps just for you. Lund’s Fine Art Gallery on Main Street is one of our favorite places to go when we need to feed our soul. Featuring a variety of mediums (including jewelry if you didn’t get enough ice during your visit to Baranof’s) perfectly displayed to catch your eye, this smart shop in the downtown area is destined to be your favorite adventure.

When you find yourself seeking the ultimate luxury journey to Park City, this next activity requires a little bit of pre-planning, including the timing of your visit. The Sundance Film Festival is one of the largest film festivals in the world and a portion of it takes place right here in Park City, although it will be handled slightly differently in 2021 due to the pandemic. A local tradition that began humbly in 1978, today Sundance is a giant luxury experience that will be adding a virtual experience beginning January 28th and lasting through February 3rd.
