City: Salt Lake City
Address: 750 Kilby Ct.
Capacity: 250
Coolest Feature: The fire pit

A venue surviving over a decade is quite the accomplishment. Opening its doors in 1999, Kilby Court is Salt Lake City's longest-lasting music club for all ages. It's a small venue where garage bands become stars, mostly because it looks and feels like a garage. This place is old school; it's cash only, but that won't stop you from getting up close and personal with the band on stage, and other patrons (if the place is packed). Don't let the fire pit fool you, eitherit might give you the impression that Kilby Court is all "kumbaya," but it can get it pretty intense on the right nights.
