Out of all the clubs and bars in a city, 10Best narrows the options to those places with the most appeal and the best reputations. We offer a carefully vetted selection to let you explore Boulder nightlife on your own. If time is really tight, though, and you don't have the leisure to look through all our offerings, we present our Boulder Best Nightlife list. Here, we distill the best businesses down to a special selection of ten. These places promise a stellar experience and a taste of the city that you just can't miss.
Topping our list, hole-in-the-wall Pearl Street Pub and Cellar offers a unique dive-bar experience and has a plethora of beers on tap. If you haven't had enough, you can crawl just around the corner to the West End Tavern for great pub grub and a stellar view of the Flatirons courtesy their rooftop patio. If you need to get away from the thoroughfare, you can travel to the outskirts of town for one of the coziest, quaintest taprooms around: Avery Brewing Company offers over 15 unique, in-house, brews on tap and a mostly mellow, occasionally raucous atmosphere perfect for a late night pint with friends. Read on as we direct you to beer, music, dancing, and more.
