Salut in Sioux City: Five Must-Visit Bars & Breweries

Visiting a new city provides endless opportunities to explore what the locals love about their hometown, including the nightlife scene. The clink of glasses, the cheers of a game-winning score, and the buzz of live music amount to the music of a night out, and in Sioux City, you can let the music play. Whether you’re here for the party or simply finding your vacation in need of a little late-evening excitement, here are five excellent choices to get you there.

The Diving Elk
: If craft beverages and cozy comfort foods are calling your name, look no further than Siouxland’s own Diving Elk. The name of the game is casual ambiance at this popular local bar and eatery, but don’t let that fool you; an afternoon or evening here offers artisanal cocktails, over 15 different craft brews, and a menu that ranges from shepherd’s pie to creative and flavorful burgers. Don’t forget to bring your appetite!

Marto Brewing Co.: Modern, industrial style meets the high-end flavor of a wood fire grill at Marto, but there’s so much more to explore! This little Siouxland gem is best known for brewing up delicious craft beers in wild and creative flavors (think peanut butter and coconut) and coupling that with more traditional fan favorites, so you’ll never leave without your thirst quenched. Happen to be in the city on a Sunday? Don’t miss out on their famous brunch!

Jackson Street Brewing: After several years in business, this brewery has taken its family affair and made a real mark on the city’s craft scene. Their on-tap list includes tasty brews like “Taco Ride” (best paired with – you guessed it – tacos) and “London Curveball,” and with so many options, why not try a few? If you’re traveling with a crew and prefer a private bar experience, take a peek at their stylish and impressive 609 event space.

Main + Abbey at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino: The night is young, you’ve just courted Lady Luck at the Ultimate Texas Hold’em table, and you’re wondering how to keep the evening rocking along. Step right over to Main + Abbey and take a load off with an incredible array of cocktails, entrees, and desserts to suit any palate. Proudly sporting a decidedly British decor, Main + Abbey takes the iconic feel of the Hard Rock Hotel and combines it with a pleasantly relaxed atmosphere for the best way to begin or end your night out.

Miles Inn: If your ideal night on the town involves a cold beer and sports on a big screen, Miles Inn has everything you need and then some. Casual, charming, and always fun (their slogan is “Smile with Miles,” after all!), this place feels like a comfortable neighborhood sports bar for Siouxland residents and visitors alike. Make sure you don’t let the game end without grabbing a Charlie Boy sandwich – this signature loose-meat delight makes the perfect pairing with your choice of brew or cocktail.
