The Bar Car

The Bar Car

Given the building's rather nondescript front, the dark, rustic interior -- with its wisps of an old-timey railroad theme -- is a pleasant surprise.
Historians Ale House

Historians Ale House

The long bar at Historians Ale House is reminiscent of something you would find in Boston or Chicago, with its never-ending line of taps surrounded by warm brick walls and sky-high ceilings.
Williams & Graham

Williams & Graham

The focus is the big wooden bar, which has a drink menu featuring vignettes, anecdotes and profiles of spirits written by prolific bartenders from around the country, as well as a roster of simple, elegant cocktails.

  • 28th Street Tavern

    28th Street Tavern

    2690 28th St. Boulder, CO 80301

    Opened in 2009 on Super Bowl Sunday, the 28th Street Tavern has become a locals' favorite, with an impressive list of continuing specials. During the weekday evening happy hour, 28th Street offers everyone's favorite -- the buy-one-get-one -- plus free pool. And don't let the front room fool you: The bar counter extends nearly thirty feet back and opens up into a large pool room stocked with high-top tables, foosball and a small stage for local acts to play on. Outside is a small fenced and heated patio with seating and a wall-mounted television so you don't lose track of the game. Read more about 28th Street Tavern >>

  • The Attic Bar and Bistro

    The Attic Bar and Bistro

    949 Walnut St. Boulder, CO 80302
    303-415-1300 Situated in the top of a downtown Boulder office building, the Attic Bar and Bistro serves quality late-night pub grub, including burgers, until 1 a.m. The Attic also offers daily drink specials (Mondays: "Fat Alberts" -- grape Kool-Aid, lemonade and vodka; Fridays: Old Style beer with Jim Beam) and nightly dinner specials (tacos on Tuesday, spaghetti and meatballs on Thursday). Don't miss the weekend game-day brunch (Saturdays and Sundays from 10:45 a.m. to 4 p.m.), which features a $3 Bloody Mary bar and $2 mimosas.

  • Avery Brewing Co.

    Avery Brewing Co.

    5757 Arapahoe Ave. Boulder, CO 80303
    303-440-4324 One of Boulder's best-kept secrets, the Avery Brewing Company's Tap Room is the perfect place to meet up with friends for a couple of beers. Choose from virtually any of Avery's numerous offerings, including rotating seasonal brews and limited-edition ales. The Belgian-style Karma Ale is ideal during warmer months, while the New World Porter (or Out of Bounds Stout) makes the perfect apres-ski beverage. A large and diverse food menu is also available, featuring items that are all a cut above your average bar fare. Brewery tours are available every day of the week and on Fridays Avery hosts special rare beer tappings. Read more about Avery Brewing Co. >>

  • Bohemian Biergarten

    Bohemian Biergarten

    2017 13th St. Boulder, CO 80302
    720-328-8328 Zdenek Srom opened Bohemian Biergarten, his European-style beer garden, in spring 2013 at the Boulder address that once housed Trilogy. And although this place is very unlike that legendary spot in many ways, like Trilogy, it focuses on creating community. A community of people who enjoy good beer and hearty food to go with it. A community of people who appreciate live music, which Bohemian offers. And, above all, a community of people who simply like hanging out together at a cool, casual gathering place. Read more about Bohemian Biergarten >>

  • Boulder Beer Company

    Boulder Beer Company

    2880 Wilderness Place Boulder, CO 80301
    303-444-8448 First opened in an old goat shed by two University of Colorado professors in 1979, the Boulder Beer Company is the oldest microbrewery in Colorado. At their Pub -- a full-service restaurant -- you can choose from a long list of menu items accompanied by suggested beer pairings. Try the half-pound Buff burger (all natural; no hormones or antibiotics) with a pint of Buffalo Gold, or the veggie burrito with a dry-hopped Hazed and Infused. Even the appetizers here come with recommendations: Buffalo wings with the Flashback India Brown Ale? How 'bout the sampler plate with -- you guessed it -- the Boulder Beer sampler? One word of warning: The Pub closes early (generally around 10 p.m.). Read more about Boulder Beer Company >>

  • The Buffalo Bar and Grill

    800 28th St. Boulder, CO 80303-2201

    With a history that dates back more than a century, the Buffalo Restaurant & Bar is one of the more popular spots in downtown Idaho Springs. With antique bars that were built in the 1860s and an awesome collection of antique signs, the Buffalo no doubt has a historic feel. The bar serves a decent selection of local brews from the likes of Odell’s, New Belgium and Tommyknocker, while the menu includes beef and buffalo burgers, pizzas and sandwiches, as well as Mexican dishes. Read more about The Buffalo Bar and Grill >>

  • The Bustop

    The Bustop

    4871 Broadway St. Boulder, CO 80304-0523

    When it comes to adult entertainment in Boulder, the choices are pretty limited. There’s the upscale Nitro Club, which opened in 2009 right off the Pearl Street Mall, smack dab in the middle of downtown. And then there’s the Bustop, which is on the outskirts and has been around for decades. The Bustop has definitely got a lived-in feel, but that’s part of its charm. For the most part, the girls here are friendly and not too assertive. Read more about The Bustop >>

  • Conor O

    Conor O'Neill's

    1922 13th St. Boulder, CO 80302
    303-449-1922 A staple dive that stands out even in Boulder's crowded bar scene, Conor O'Neill's is the most authentic Irish pub you'll find in the Rockies, thanks to the importation of everything from the bar to the fireplace to the decor. Irish masons even flew over to help build the place. Live music on weekends includes rock, surf, folk and, of course, Celtic. Conor O'Neill's boasts dark rooms lined with eclectic artifacts, placed haphazardly above dark tables and booths. The spot is always a little sticky, thanks to the debauchery that's long taken place within its halls. Although the pub's big draws are its tap beer and live music (the center room hosts open-mike nights and local musicians), many regulars stop in to grab burgers here, too. And it's not unusual to witness groups doing car bombs, even if St. Patrick's Day is a long way off. Read more about Conor O'Neill's >>

  • The Corner Bar

    The Corner Bar

    2115 13th St. Boulder, CO 80302
    303-442-4560 The Corner Bar, located inside the historic Boulderado Hotel, offers two floors of seating and a heated outside patio. The expansive wine and spirits list -- which includes an impressive array of single-malt Scotches -- is full of specials and unique drinks like the Boulderado Martini (Ketel One vodka, Cointreau and Limoncello with a sugared rim). If that doesn't warm you right, the house-infused bourbon mixed with homemade cider could be the thing that keeps you toasty. And if the Corner Bar happens to be where you claim last call, step right into the lobby of the Boulderado and book yourself a room for the night, because the brunch menu is worth sticking around for the morning after. Read more about The Corner Bar >>

  • Crossroads Tavern

    Crossroads Tavern

    400 W. S. Boulder Road Lafayette, CO 80026

    While this Lafayette neighborhood spot definitely has elements of a sports bar, including a lot of Broncos memorabilia, pool tables, dartboard and a big-screen TV, it also attracts a good share of bikers. A little too clean to be a dive, the Crossroads Tavern, tucked away in the Coal Creek Village Shopping Center, is roomy enough that you're not standing shoulder-to-shoulder with folks, even when it gets busy on the weekends (when it occasionally brings in bands). It also has a decent-sized patio to stretch out on or have a smoke. Read more about Crossroads Tavern >>

  • Dark Horse Bar & Grill

    Dark Horse Bar & Grill

    2922 Baseline Road Boulder, CO 80303
    303-442-8162 Locals and tourists alike have flocked to this Boulder institution - a huge yet divey space filled with kitschy items, antiques and movie props - since it first opened its doors in 1975. The burgers are the thing to order here, especially during the Dark Horse's legendary, long-running "Burger Madness" on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, when five bucks gets you a hamburger or cheeseburger plus fries, salad or pasta salad. If you feel adventurous, try the Jiffy Burger (peanut butter, bacon and provolone); if you're a little more cautious, go for the Avocado Burger (avocado, green chiles, sour cream and pepper Jack). There are other menu options, too, including the roast pork sandwich (pulled pork and BBQ sauce on a toasted roll) and Buffalo wings. Take note: The kitchen is self-serve, so you'll need to place your order at the service window. There are plenty of distractions, from karaoke to live music to watching the game on one of eleven HDTVs or on the projection TV in the back bar. And the wacky decor (including mens' and ladies' room signs designed to confuse the inattentive) is a sure conversation-starter. Read more about Dark Horse Bar & Grill >>

  • Dillinger

    Dillinger's Food & Spirits

    1202 Centaur Village Drive Lafayette, CO 80026
    303-666-6979 Although named after the famous bank robber John Dillinger, who was gunned down by police in 1934, this Lafayette spot is much more of a sports bar a speakeasy. Sure, there are a fair amount of photos of the Dillinger hung around the neighborhood watering hole, but they're almost overshadowed by the neon beer and Broncos signs. While it's not a bad place to catch a game, Dillinger's also brings in live bands on Fridays and hosts karaoke on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Read more about Dillinger's Food & Spirits >>

  • First Street Pub & Grill

    First Street Pub & Grill

    35 E. First St. Nederland, CO 80466

    One of downtown Nederland's main watering holes, First Street Pub & Grill is a no-frills spot with an earthy feel. A relaxed spot during the week, First Street can quickly get packed on weekends that it hosts live bands or during one of the town's annual celebrations, such as Frozen Dead Guy Days. The bar has a decent selection of brews, and the menu includes pasta, burgers, pizza and sandwiches, with vegan and vegetarian options. There's also a dog-friendly patio that offers wonderful views of the mountains. Read more about First Street Pub & Grill >>

  • Gentleman Jim's

    328 S. McCaslin Blvd. Louisville, CO 80027-9432

  • George

    George's Food & Drink

    2028 14th St. Boulder, CO 80302
    303-998-9350 Named for George Paper, the manager of the historic Boulder Theater in the 1920s whose friendly ghost is rumored to still haunt the place, George's Food & Drink is a popular pre-theater hangout. In addition to a full bar, George's features a menu of contemporary comfort food that includes familiar favorites such as mac-and-cheese, pot roast and chicken pot pie -- and you can take food and drink from George's inside the Boulder Theater. After a show, George's late-night menu offers fun snacks such as grilled cheese-and-tomato sandwiches and deviled eggs. Stick around, George; we like your style. Read more about George's Food & Drink >>

  • Henry

    Henry's Bar & Grill

    935 Pine St. Louisville, CO 80027-1837

    While downtown Louisville has gotten its share of upscale spots over the years, there are still a handful of joints that feel like they haven't changed in decades. From its nondescript exterior and a marquee that touts pool and darts to its somewhat weathered interior, Henry's Bar & Grill is one of the area's best dives. It's a laid-back bar with cheap drinks and a jukebox, and while burgers are on the menu, Henry's also serves Chinese and Thai food. Read more about Henry's Bar & Grill >>

  • The Hookah House

    1325 Broadway St. Boulder, CO 80302-6200

  • The Hungry Toad

    The Hungry Toad

    2543 N. Broadway Boulder, CO 80304
    303-442-5012 This English-style pub serves top-notch imported British ales on draft, including Boddingtons Pub Ale, Fuller's ESB, and Old Speckled Hen. The atmosphere is warm and cozy, and the food is great, too. You get the feeling that you're in England, or right at home -- or maybe both at the same time. Try the bubbly Asiago cheese dip served with toasted French bread -- or the potato skins with bacon, chili or broccoli, topped with cheddar or jalapeno and Monterey Jack -- over a couple of ESBs and some good conversation. Come for the Toad's happy hour. The parking lot is small, but there's plenty of easy street parking. Read more about The Hungry Toad >>

  • Johnny

    Johnny's Cigar Bar

    1801 13th St. Boulder, CO 80302
    303-449-0884 This is a cozy spot tucked inside One Boulder Plaza, with five humidors stocked full of cigars near the door and a smoking room in the back that sports a few overstuffed leather chairs and a TV. There's also a baby grand piano and a small PA system for live music, mostly jazz and blues, Thursdays through Saturdays. Read more about Johnny's Cigar Bar >>

  • License No. 1

    License No. 1

    2115 13th Street Boulder, CO 80301
    303-443-0486 In 2014, the Boulderado Hotel became home to two bars, one new and one old. The Corner Bar, which has been around for decades, providing drinks and food in a lodge setting for hotel guests and locals alike, got a facelift. It was joined by License No. 1, which replaced the Catacombs, a longstanding college-bar favorite located underneath the hotel that closed at the end of March. License No. 1 has traded the pinball machines for red leather booths, providing a more upscale - if underground - option for thirty patrons. The bar serves a variety of local beers and spirits and offers live music three nights a week. Read more about License No. 1 >>

  • The Louisville Rex

    The Louisville Rex

    817 Main St. Louisville, CO 80027
    303-666-6224 The history of the Rex, one of the oldest buildings in Louisville, goes back more than a century: Opened as a billiards hall around 1908, it was also a movie theater for decades. In the late 1970s, it became Senor T’s, which subsequently closed after a thirty-year run. In 2010, a new building was essentially built within the walls of the old shell, and the Rex now sports a great rooftop patio as well as a patio in the front. While it’s a decent spot for drinks, the Rex also has many vegetarian and gluten-free items on its menu. Read more about The Louisville Rex >>

  • Mountain Sun Pub and Brewery

    Mountain Sun Pub and Brewery

    1535 Pearl St. Boulder, CO 80302
    303-546-0886 The Mountain Sun group channels the spirit of those college roommates who maintained a constant house party, complete with a keg and a rotating roster of friends. The three pubs are a front for a microbrewery, and they each maintain a line of about twenty taps for the Sun's own solid, award-winning craft beers. During happy hour, hippies, hikers and lawn-game enthusiasts can indulge in $3 pints of heady IPAs and nitro stouts, supplemented by bar fare that pragmatically provides both bacon and beer-baked tempeh for the conscious eaters who frequent these establishments. Read more about Mountain Sun Pub and Brewery >>

  • Nissi


    2675 N. Park Drive Lafayette, CO 80026
    303-665-2757 One of the few full-fledged music venues in Lafayette, Nissi’s brings in a variety of local and national live acts most nights of the week, offering everything from jazz and rock to a cappella, comedy and cabaret. The intimate venue, which has a decent sound system and acoustics, is a classy spot for an evening of dinner and entertainment. Most of the shows start early and end by 9:30 p.m. on weekdays and 10 p.m. on the weekends. The dinner menu includes burgers, pasta, steak, stuffed eggplant, seafood and appetizers. Read more about Nissi's >>

  • No Name Bar

    1325 Broadway Boulder, CO 80302

    While this Prohibition-style bar on the Hill in Boulder can be hard to find at first because of a lack of signage outside (there's just a large wooden door), the hidden gem is worth tracking down. It's intimate, with just a few booths inside, but it's a great place to escape the area's more bro-centric bars. The No Name's main draw is live music, which happens nearly every day of the week. There are weekly bluegrass and swing nights, with assorted bands playing the rest of the week. Read more about No Name Bar >>

  • Old Chicago

    Old Chicago

    1102 Pearl St. Boulder, CO 80302
    303-443-5031 In this day and age, Old Chicago locations are common enough across the country that many diners have forgotten this chain's humble beginnings: It got its start not in Chicago -- or anywhere else in Illinois, for that matter -- but in Boulder, in 1976. Old Chicago is part of the Rock Bottom line of restaurants, and beer features heavily on the menu; the bar has 110 kinds available at any given time. The pizza is another draw, served Chicago-style, original or thin crust, with signature toppings and build-your-own options. The rest of the menu is about what you'd expect from a pizza-heavy, beer-centric venue: burgers, pasta, calzones, starters and salads. But for dessert, you can't miss with the renowned Big Cookie.
