The Sink has been holding down the Hill since 1923, attracting generations of University of Colorado students, alums and regular residents of Boulder who appreciate just how raucous this town can get. Robert Redford worked as a janitor here when he was a CU student in the '50s; in the '70s, beatnik artists Mike Dormier and Lloyd Kavich created the groovy artwork that still adorns the walls, depicting the transformation from innocence to experience that can be attributed to college - or maybe just a night at the Sink itself. But the Sink isn't just about alcohol and ambience: It serves one of the better cheeseburgers in town, and other offerings on the kitchen-sink menu range from soups and salads to sandwiches and pizza. The Sink is a must-stop for anyone visiting Boulder - and just about everyone who lives here, too.
