Dark Horse Bar & Grill

Evan Semón
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 opened its doors in 1975. There are plenty of distractions, from karaoke to live music to games showing on one of eleven HDTVs or on the projection TV in the back bar. And the wacky decor (including men’s and ladies' room signs designed to confuse the inattentive) is a sure conversation-starter. The burgers are the thing to order here: 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).
