Absinthe House

1109 Walnut St.
Boulder, CO 80302
After a thirteen-year run as the Foundry, new owners took over this spot in 2010 and turned it into a bar that looks like it dates back to that day almost a century ago when absinthe was banned, but with an updated feel. Since the owners also run the Green Fairy absinthe bar and two restaurants in Summit County, they already had a handle on the absinthe market, so it's not surprising that Absinthe House boasts the largest selection of absinthe of any bar in America. The front part of the space is a restaurant that serves lunch and dinner; the back is a 6,000-square-foot nightclub with DJs spinning European electronic music six nights of the week as well as theme nights throughout the week.
