Some nights, it’s enough to grab a drink with friends, sit around and chat about nothing in particular.

But on others, it’s fun to have a bit of a barroom challenge. 

Enter: Trivia night.

While Salt Lake City is packed with bars that offer trivia nights, there are relatively few in the Ogden area. Thankfully, though, there are a few options available for those evenings when you and your friends need to prove you’re smarter than the rest.

Here’s a look at bars that offer trivia nights in Ogden. Know of one we’ve left off the list? Email information about it to cityed@standard.net, and we’ll add it to the story.

IRON HORSE 

Location: 3611 Washington Blvd., Ogden

Trivia hours: 7 p.m. Tuesdays

General hours: 10 a.m. to 1 a.m. Monday through Friday; noon to 1 a.m. Saturday; noon to 6 p.m. Sunday

Description: What’s better than trivia night? Eating tacos while you play trivia. If you agree, visit the Iron Horse on Tuesday, when the bar serves up all-day tacos and its weekly Pub Quiz. In addition to food and alcohol, this casual location often has live music. It’s a small bar, but if you’re in the mood for a night away from the 25th Street crowd, visit on trivia night. 

ALLEGED 

Location: 201 25th St., Ogden

Trivia hours: 7:30 p.m. Thursdays

General hours: 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. Thursday through Saturday

Description: Looking for a spot to have some weekday fun on 25th Street? Take a trip to Alleged, which — based on our calls to bars around the area — is the only spot along the historic main street that offers trivia night. The popular bar has three floors: one designed like a night club; one with the feel of a trendy, urban bar; and a beautiful rooftop deck where you can look out over Junction City. Trivia is held in the bar level, which is on the second floor. The room, which has all-around exposed brick walls, has plenty of seating areas for groups. There isn’t a ton of food served at the location, though it does feature a full bar with plenty of beer, cocktails and more.

FUNK ‘N DIVE

Location: 2550 Washington Blvd., Ogden

Trivia hours: 7 p.m. Wednesdays

General hours: 3 p.m. to 2 a.m. seven days a week

Description: Need a fun way to get through the mid-week blues? Visit Funk ‘n Dive on Wednesday night, when the downtown Ogden staple hosts trivia night. If you need a meal to go with your drinks, this is a great option — the bar offers a full menu packed with appetizers and entrees, as well as plenty of vegan options for your healthy friends. As evidenced by its name, Funk ‘n Dive has a bit of a dive bar feel, but offers friendly service, plenty of seating and activities like pool as well. On rare occasions when something else is happening at the downstairs bar, trivia moves upstairs to Harp ‘n Hound, an urban-chic spot run by Funk ‘n Dive’s owners.
