6 Best Things About Jackson Hole’s Nightlife

No matter if you like to get to bed early or stay up until the wee hours of the morning, Jackson Hole has a fantastic nightlife scene that draws guests from around the world. Here are fun facts to help you decide where to light up the night!

Jackson has its very own Playhouse

The Jackson Hole Playhouse is one of Jackson Hole’s historical gems, and provides dinner, a live show, and a great time all in one night! From the charming exterior to the old west feel inside, the Playhouse provides a delightful experience. Delicious food is served by the performers with entertainment during dinner and then the main show, which is often a broadway favorite that the whole family will enjoy.

You can experience a real chuckwagon dinner

Are you ready for an unforgettable western experience? Makes reservations at Bar T 5  for their chuckwagon dinner. Load up on a horse-drawn covered wagon for a 2-mile ride into the Bridger-Teton National Forest. Then enjoy a mouth-watering meal cooked over the fire by top-notch western chefs. Settle in and enjoy your meal as the Bar T 5 band begins tuning up for an evening of music, dancing, and fun.

There’s live music 7 days a week

Jackson Hole has a popular music scene. While some of the music festivals are on hold for now, there are still places to kick up your heels on the dancefloor and listen to great music. The Million Dollar Cowboy Bar has music 7 days a week with a great lineup of local and regional bands. Silver Dollar Showroom at the Wort Hotel has their returning favorites such as local band One Ton Pig. You’re sure to find your favorite genre of music or listen to something new. 

You can gaze at the stars

In the west, there are still wide open spaces, and with that comes an unbelievable night sky. Take just a short drive outside of town and enjoy the stars! We recommend an extra special experience with a stargazing tour with Wyoming Stargazers. You can enjoy the scheduled tours or reserve a private stargazing tour just for you and your group. Their experienced team will help you see the night sky in new ways and reveal the hidden gems above you. 


Enjoy your nightlife early or late or join the best of both worlds with a relaxing dinner, a little dancing followed by a quiet ending to the day looking at the stars!
