The local after work evening hang outs are local taverns. The Pony offers good food as well and freebie food for Friday Happy Hour- a little noisey if you are not on the oudoor deck. A great cowboy bar that is a tradition in Sheridan is The Mint Bar good right after work and later on the weekends. Young people enjoy the bar at the Holiday Inn, LBM, and Buddies.
Dress Code: Every place in Sheridan is casual, go as you are.
The WYO is an old fashion theatre built in 1923 with tall ceilings, balcony, bar. As a child I went to movies there but it has since been refurbished into a show piece. They offer an interesting mix of shows and plays which have on more than one occasion included Garth Brooks. (A real coo for a little town like Sheridan.) The box office is open from noon-5pm Tuesday-Friday. Check out their schedule before coming to town and maybe you can get hooked into a good show.
Dress Code: The dress code depends upon the show. However, in Wyoming you can almost always get by with a nice pair of jeans.
Three main places to go to. There are others, but you will find the people here.
Number one spot--LBM's It is on Coffeen Ave. across from Perkin's. People usually get there 9:30pm at the earliest. By 10pm it is getting packed and stays that way until close (1:30am). They have a big dance floor, plenty of space to sit, sometimes a band, and other times a live DJ. They have waitresses that come around quite often to see if you need anything. I recommend this place first.
Number two spot is Buddy's. It is on North Main St. on your way toward the north end of town. If you are on your way out of town toward the Interstate and Port of Entry, you will find it on your left hand side. The people here seems to be the overflow from LBM's toward 11pm or midnight. You pretty much have to get your own drinks at the bar here. I think they have two pool tables. They have a small dance floor. It stays a little packed in here. There are a lot of regulars there.
Number three is Scooters. It is attached to the Holiday Inn, behind Wal-mart. It, on occassion, has some overflow from LBM's around 11pm to 1am. Scooters is the best place to be if you want to go to a small club and want to drink/visit with friends in a quiet atmosphere. Good luck with getting waited on. Your better off to sit at the bar, or go to the bar to ask for a drink. Besides that, they have two pool tables, a small dance floor, and can actually be a good break from the loud noise and cigarette smoke.
Dress Code: casual
Well, I am a non-drinking, non-smoking, bachelor so i don't spend a great deal of time at the bars. But when i go hang with friends it's usually at a place called LBM(Little Big Man). It is a restaurant/lounge. Half of the building is a lounge and the other half is a place to eat. The bar is a pretty hopping place Monday-Saturday. They have the usual specials..ie: ladies night, happy hour, ect.
It is a country bar and makes this obvious when you look above the dancefloor and see the mirrorball is a sequin-covered saddle!!...LOL
The big thing is Karoke Night. Everyone from collage to senior citizens show up for that! Public Drunkeness! Gotta love it!...LOL!
Dress Code: Anything goes...cowboy hats are dominant though.
