Best Late-Night Scene — Best of Vail Valley 2019

1. Shakedown Bar

2. Bonfire Brewing

3. Root & Flower

Those who enjoy going out on the town for drinks and dancing have likely found themselves at Shakedown Bar on Friday or Saturday night. Frequented by locals and visitors alike, nightly live music has set Shakedown at the intersection of dive bar and music venue. Friends Scott Rednor and Phil Long opened the joint in 2012, and Rednor toured with Lenny Kravitz, Blues Traveler and Dave Matthews before settling down in Vail. Both he and Long are still active in the local music scene. Shakedown’s location at the top of Bridge Street means it’s an easy-to-find favorite, especially after you’ve knocked back a few.
