Hotel search

It may be widely regarded as an outdoorsman's paradise, but Jackson Hole also offers an exciting lineup of social activities after sunset. You can head to downtown Jackson and kick up your heels at a cowboy bar, sip cocktails at a fireside lounge, or sample local beers at a brewpub. For a slice of authentic local culture, you can head to the rodeo or a watch musical at the playhouse.

Country music and dancing

 

Downtown Jackson is where you'll find spirited country and western bars complete with live music, line dancing, and real cowboys. One of the most popular spots is Million Dollar Cowboy Bar where the barstools are made from horse saddles and single barrel Jack Daniel’s whiskey flows freely. A few steps away you’ll find Silver Dollar Bar & Grill. You can enjoy cocktails at the unique bar embedded with U.S. silver dollar coins and get down to the local bluegrass band that brings in lots of locals.
