About Boulder, CO Nightlife

Nightlife in Boulder is full of festivals, family events, dining, drinks, bike rides and more. Visiting a local brewery or pub to start off  the evening with happy hour drinks, catching a show at Boulder Theater, and then finishing the night off with some live music is just one of the many exciting plans for an evening out in this community at the base of the Rockies. If you're looking for a hole-in-the wall place to stumble into after dinner, try the Avery Brewing Company tap room; a local Boulder favorite, this off-the-beaten-path gem offers an impressive selection of beer. If you're wanting something closer to the action, try Mountain Sun Pub and Brewery or Conor O'Neills Irish Pub; both offer delicious pub grub and are in the thick of the thoroughfare. If you need to work off some of that beer and food, join the Boulder Cruiser Ride for their weekly cycle through town.
