The Teton Gravity Research crew regularly parties here, sometimes bringing along their Metallica buddies. But usually it's just rowdy bros loudly proclaiming their coreness while bands like The Samples play onstage. mangymoose.net. Photo courtesy of Mangy Moose
Just a few steps from the bottom of the mountain, the Moose has a great après scene.
For a taste of iconic Jackson Hole, go to the Mangy Moose. Even though the restaurant in Teton Village is usually filled with tourists, it’s incredibly convenient. Just a few steps from the bottom of the mountain, the bar has a great après scene. Along with a few beers or a fresh fruit margarita, try their famous burger, made with local beef, and French fries. If a burger and fries is not your thing, the menu changes often and is always Western-eclectic, featuring things like spicy buffalo meatloaf and black angus top sirloin marinated in Guinness and grilled with bourbon braised onions.
convenient, delicious pizza, right in the Village.
At first, the allure of a virtually underground bar and pizza joint may not be apparent, but sit back, order a drink from the legendary bartender, John V, and let it all soak in. A favorite with locals, the Village Café makes delicious whole-wheat thin crust pizza. At only three bucks for a slice, and around $20 for a large pizza, depending on what toppings you get, the pizza is an incredible value. The pepperoni pizza will blow your mind. The curst is perfectly crispy and the slices of pepperoni are bubbly and browned around the edges.
Stop by on a Saturday to find out why the Stagecoach isn't your average roadside joint.
Visit the historic Stagecoach Bar and Grille for a taste of good ole Wyoming. Even though it has a typical bar atmosphere with pool tables, darts, and a jukebox, it’s not your average roadside joint. The food comes in large portions, but is predictable. Dishes tend to be a little on the greasy side, but what Stagecoach is really known for is it’s raucous Sunday nights. Every week for the past 40 years, the Stagecoach Band has been on stage starting at 6 (always use figures for time) p.m. playing all those songs that you forgot about, but always loved.
Don’t be intimidated by the long line at Pearl St. Bagels. The place is popular, but the line moves fast and any wait is definitely worth it. The bagels are baked fresh daily and the number of spreads to choose from is almost overwhelming. Pearl St. Bagels has a tradition of not toasting bagels, so don’t even ask, even if that’s how you like them. The bagels are fresh out of the oven and warm anyway, so don’t worry about not having a hot breakfast. You could even get an extra bagel to go and eat it the next day (they don’t go bad very fast).
