"After riding Porcupine Rim, we..." Moab Nightlife Tip by Got_Snow

Moab Nightlife: 3 reviews and 4 photos

After riding Porcupine Rim, we decided to go get some food and grog. I had been to Moab about four months earlier and knew of a cool little place to do so; The Rio. You have to order beers out of the cooler because they are not 3.2, but full strength beers. All beers on tap only contain 3.2% alcohol (Thanks to Utah regulations and liquor laws).
The Rio has great live music every Friday and Saturday night at around 10:00 pm. The Rio is kind of a local hang out, and is know as a mellow hippy bar. The atmosphere is cool and friendly, even to outsiders. The food is cheap, but very tastey for bar food. This is the place to be if you are looking for nightlife in Moab, UT. We ran into a couple of girls that I went to college with. It is truly a small world. It was nice getting the scoop from people I had gone to school with, and starting new friendships.

Dress Code: Come as you are. Very casual. Shorts, t-shirts, sandles. If you show up in a suit or tie you may be asked to leave :)

Theme: Live Music
