Laurel Brasserie & Bar opening this Fall in downtown Salt Lake City

Laurel bar at Grand America

Laurel Brasserie & Bar, a neighborhood American brasserie with a thoroughly modern touch, will open adjacent to the Grand America Hotel on December 1st.  Featuring bold flavors and European-inspired techniques, coupled with a stunning decor, Laurel Brasserie & Bar will serve breakfast, Sunday brunch, lunch, Happy Hour, and dinner.

“We’re excited to invite locals and travelers to join us for a drink or enjoy an amazing meal while we create new memories together,” said Restaurant General Manager, Regis Perret. “After so many months apart, we’re eager for Laurel Brasserie & Bar to serve as downtown Salt Lake City’s new gathering spot.”


The new restaurant will be classic in menu and decor, offering approachable food and creative beverage options to delight guests for years to come. Laurel Brasserie & Bar will be centered around a thoughtfully designed bar to activate the grand space. The restaurant is also complimented by spacious private dining rooms, an exhibition oven, and a gorgeous outdoor patio slated to open in the spring. 

“Laurel Brasserie & Bar is ready to serve everyone from the downtown professionals and the arts community looking to grab pre-curtain or after-work drinks to the urban out-of-town adventurer ready to explore all that our city has to offer,” affirms Beverage Guru, Mark Moulton. “We invite Salt Lake City to join us at our beautifully appointed new bar for a hand-crafted cocktail created with local spirits or specialty-created zero-proof selections, that pair so perfectly with our incredible Happy Hour food menu.”


Laurel Brasserie & Bar’s menu features classic European cuisine presented with a modern American twist. The menu will offer bites & starters, soups & salads, handcrafted pasta, mains, and compliments – built on fresh, local, and seasonal ingredients presented as familiar comfort foods with bold flavors. 

Guests can imbibe with a classic drink or one of Laurel Brasserie & Bar’s signature specialty cocktails like the Great Basin Tamarind Sour or the Lemon Tart. Those looking to go lighter can choose to go entirely spirit-free with a zero-proof mocktail. Laurel Brasserie & Bar is proud to offer a diverse dining selection, all without breaking the bank which allows guests to visit multiple times per week for a variety of different occasions. Happy Hour, which will take place from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m., and Late Night Happy Hour from 10:00 – 12:00 p.m. every day, will offer food selections at half price.


A community favorite, Bonne Vie will reopen after a refresh inside the Laurel Brasserie & Bar space. Spoiling guests with homemade treats including golden croissants, creamy gelato, and the iconic pastel macarons in an endless variety of flavors, Bonne Vie is a neighborhood cafe and coffee bar offering exceptional baked goods and ice cream. Open 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily.
