Our Story

Realine Group is a Salt Lake City-based hospitality and entertainment group founded by Bryan Borreson and Vaughn Carrick. Together, they have been on the forefront of Salt Lake City’s entertainment scene since 2007 and an integral part of its growth and development. From restaurants to nightclubs to music festivals and everything in between, the partners hold extensive knowledge and understanding of the hospitality industry, what their guests want, and how to curate memorable experiences that are more than just a “night out”. 

In 2018, after a decade-long run with Elevate Nightclub, Borreson and Carrick shifted directions with the space and transformed it into Soundwell – one of Salt Lake’s premier concert and event venues of its size. In 2020, the partners continued in their expansion efforts and began the development of a dynamic portfolio of independent hospitality brands, including two new bars and restaurants: The Ivy and Varley. 

The Ivy represents all of the qualities that the hospitality and entertainment partners have come to look for in their own nights out – an inviting yet upscale atmosphere, a dynamic and consistently executed menu, and a commitment to great customer service. To these ends, The Ivy boasts one of the most unforgettable dining experiences in the city featuring downtown SLC’s largest outdoor patio (slated to open in the Spring), a contemporary and ingredient-led menu from acclaimed Executive Chef Bobby McFarland and executed by local Chef Neza Prieto, and a thorough attention to detail in both ambiance and guest experience. The Ivy has been thoughtfully designed as the perfect downtown destination to enjoy amazing meals and create epic memories with friends and loved ones. 

Directly next door to The Ivy, guests can enjoy an innovative approach to high-end cocktail culture without all the pretense. Maintaining the same modern aesthetic at The Ivy but with a little more edge, Varley is the perfect setting to share in drinks and dialogue for both the most discernible of cocktail connoisseurs and those simply seeking a cold craft beer or pour on the rocks.
