SLC Sky to be acquired by Live Night Events and Realine Group


Salt Lake City—Independent event production company based in Salt Lake City Live Night Eventsas well as the growing local hotel business Realine Grouphave just announced their joint acquisition of SKY – Downtown SLC’s most recognized nightlife and event space.

Located at 149 Pierpont Avenue in downtown Salt Lake City, the 15,000 square foot open-air building features state-of-the-art sound and lighting, 20 VIP suites and an iconic retractable glass roof. Since the building’s inauguration in 2015, SKY has hosted thousands of nationally-acclaimed touring artists and has become a staple of the city’s nightlife and entertainment scene. SKY is also home to Trellisone of the few rooftop bars in downtown Salt Lake.

SKY will join the growing list of SLC concert venues and restaurants/bars now jointly owned and operated by Live Nite Events and Realine Group, including sound well (the 600 capacity hall just a block away on 200 S) and Ivy and Varley (the very popular pair of modern American restaurants/bars downtown).

Together, LNE and Realine Group have been at the forefront of Salt Lake City’s entertainment scene since 2007 and integral to its growth and development. Thus, guests can expect a welcoming and customer-focused experience, as well as a full audit of past security issues associated with the venue.

The team will continue to seek programming support from V2 presents – Utah’s leading electronic music promotion company and entity behind DAS Energy Festival – who have a long-standing relationship with SKY and helped grow the brand into what it is today.

Vaughn Carrickowner of Live Nite Events, said of the acquisition: “We plan to maintain everything SKY holds dear while working to further elevate the fan experience and the level of talent that graces the stage. SKY has developed a strong reputation as the city’s premier nightlife destination and we intend to further enhance this reputation by bringing our team’s collective experience to venue operations, striving to improve the Salt Lake City music scene as a whole.
