No need to scale a fence to replicate the illicit pool party in Kids. Just stroll past the lobby of Grace Hotel (formerly Hotel QT) into a narrow bar that amounts to a Park City spa in miniature with its blonde-wood walls and ceilings, pillow-dotted velveteen banquettes, and fluorescent amber glow. With a sweet elderflower margarita in hand, you can then climb a few steps to a boxy room where ample bleachers overlook couples frolicking in a small underlit pool while episodes of Miami Vice play on a projection screen and D.J.’s from outfits like Giant Step and Touch of Class spin. Should the chlorine smell kill your buzz, climb a few more steps to the mezzanine, grab a spritzy glass of champagne at the second bar, and roll your Eames chair over the modernist striped carpet and up to one of the semi-circular booths under the purple-tinged skylights. Though they offer a nice bird’s eye view of the action, the steam room and sauna are better for your detox tomorrow than they are for your imbibing tonight.
