Boulder is a town known for its mountainous skyline, fine dining, outdoor recreation, craft beer and, as of late, its music scene. Located only a hop, skip, and jump from the explosive Denver music scene and Red Rocks Amphitheater of Golden, which has been ranked by music enthusiasts as one of the best outdoor music venues in the world,it's no wonder that live music abounds in Boulder. From small picking sessions at your local tavern to full-out concerts at the Fox Theater, Boulder has something for the metal-heads, the country folk, the classical die-hards, and everyone in between.
Some unique spots on our list include Conor O, Neill's where you can sip Irish coffee while listening to a group of local pickers. Oskar Blues offers New Orleans style pub-grub, craft beer, and some of the best and more raw blues tunes in the state. The Boulder Theater, located just off famous Pearl Street, offers big-name acts as well as local favorites.
If you're looking for traditional music venues that aren't beer or food related, The Fox Theater and Red Rocks where you can experience big-name acts like Bruno Marz, Trampled by Turtles, the Avett Brothers, and Zac Brown Band.
