Rocky Flats Lounge

11229 Highway 93 Boulder, CO 80303 | Boulder | 303-499-4242

Location Description:

This bar gives a whole new meaning to getting lit -- at one point, it was the payroll office for the Rocky Flats Nuclear Weapons Plant, the federal facility just across the highway that started producing plutonium triggers for nuclear bombs in the early ’50s and operated up until 1989. But the Rocky Flats Lounge has many more weapons in its arsenal: a great, gritty ambience; cheap and powerful drinks; a good bar menu complete with fish fries on Friday night; and a deck with expansive views of the Foothills...and the future wildlife refuge replacing Rocky Flats. In short, this is just the place to get bombed.
