Ski down the front side of Jackson Hole Resort, and there's no avoiding the Mangy Moose. Its mountainside patio swells with the ski-booted masses as the afternoon draws to a close. Inside, the restaurant serves up Wyoming-style pub grub such as black-bean-and-roasted-corn cake and buffalo meatloaf, while a gourmet grocery and liquor store has everything from Grolsch beer to hand-cut steaks. (Yes, the rather funky massive moose head hanging from the ceiling gives the place its name.) The Moose also has the largest indoor stage in town, where a widely divergent array of musical artists have performed (once 2 Live Crew and the Glenn Miller Orchestra did shows within a week of each other).
Closed Sundays May and November.

With its cowboy murals, mounted animal heads, and saddle bar stools, you might mistake the over-the-top Million Dollar Cowboy Bar for a gimmicky place. In fact, it's been around since 1937, both Willie Nelson and Hank Williams, Jr., have played on its stage, and it serves more Jack Daniel's than anywhere in the West. There's live country music six nights a week and free two-step dancing lessons every Thursday at 7:30.

Back in the day, ranch hands used to ride their horses inside the Stagecoach—at least according to local legend. It's not as rowdy these days, though it retains a feeling of authenticity, especially when the Stagecoach Band plays every Sunday. On weekends the place fills with a crowd of locals from Wilson, the small town between Jackson and the resort.
