Boulder, Colorado is known as a cultural mecca attracting live music, theater, artists, and foodies from across the nation. As such, the search for fine-dining and entertainment is a simple, yet varied one. For folks who prefer to get their entertainment on earlier rather than later, Boulder's coffee shops, breweries, and community theaters are happy to oblige.
Topping our list is the cozy and comfortable Laughing Goat Coffee Shop, which serves up Fair Trade and organic coffee with a side of live jazz or bluegrass. This intimate venue is perfect for couples or friends who want to spend a quiet evening enjoying tunes and conversation.
In need of something a bit more raucous? Boulder's Fox Theater or Conor O'Neill's offer live music of many varieties, drinks, and delicious food. At Conor's, local bluegrass musicians will often come to pick and play as patrons of the bar drink and look on.
If you're looking for microbrews in a calm but lively environment, Avery Brewing Company regularly offers exciting beer release parties, live music, and the occasional play. Brewery tours are also offered throughout the day and are quite entertaining.
Whether it's food, music, or event, Boulder has something for you non-night owls.
