Choosing the 10 Best bars in Boulder is like trying to choose the best restaurants in New York; a laborious task which requires much research to get it right. Luckily, this well-researched list (and by "researched" we mean that we drank and ate our way through pretty much every bar in Boulder) narrows it down so that you're sure to make the right choice in watering hole, whether you're visiting or living the dream right here in the Frontrange.
Boulder prides itself on unqiue, fresh, and flavorful microbrews, but that doesn't mean that the Boulder bars neglect other families of alcohol. On our list, you'll not only find the best beer in town (and Colorado, for that matter) but you'll also find your one-stop-shop for bourbon and well-whiskey specials.
Perched atop our list, and rightfully so, is the West End Tavern. Patio seating offering stunning views, filling pub-grab, and an exceptional beer selection and nightlife, make this the place to be.
Bringing up the rear, you'll find the The Walrus Saloon and Mountain Sun. These local favorites boast pub-grub done right, cozy yet vibrant atmospheres, and put you right in the thick of downtown Boulder.
Consider this list your Boulder Drinking Bible when you visit-Heck, we even suggest you make it your goal ( nay, your mission) to drink, dance, and eat at every spot. Cheers to that!
