Some of the best nightlife in Vail happens when there is one of the many free concerts underway in town. Events often bring big concerts to town, so check out the lineup at events like the Burton US Open, Snow Daze, Spring Back to Vail, the GoPro Mountain Games, Hot Summer Nights, Underground Sound, Street Beats, Oktoberfest and more. Following those concerts, the nightlife spills into the streets and the fun really begins. Ordinary hotel bars become gathering grounds. The transportation center itself serves drinks and the free bus system gets people around safely.
