Yeah, there are bars, but nowhere near the numbers in the real world. When you go to a bar, the lady at the front door asks if you have a "sponsor". You say "oh, that guy is sponsoring me". And they let you in. People mostly roll their eyes at the silly, inane law, but it makes the good little Mormons happy. And, it only makes the Mormons happy because for the most part they don't socialize at bars (that's what church is for). If they realized how stupid and backwards the whole process is, and how it makes Utah (continue to) look like a bunch of 19th century Puritans, they might get rid of this sillyness.
Couldn't help but rant for a second.
Incidentally, at restaurants you can order drinks but only as long as you order food.
