Eclectic sophistication amidst the brewpubs of downtown Boulder.. In Short Between the microbreweries and taverns of Boulder, the Foundry offers a more metropolitan atmosphere with DJ's and live music. The crowd combines college students with working professionals of all ages. Pool players can enjoy 11 regulation size pool tables and at least five nights a week features live music starting at 10pm. A glass-enclosed smoking offers a retreat for smokers and eliminates the smoky-lounge feel in the rest of the bar.
if u like to dance.
If you're a citygirl or boy, and thirsty for something hip and trendy in Boulder - The Foundry is a sweet place to be on Thursday nites. The DJ plays pretty awesome hiphop and you can get your groove on. The fun really starts at around 11pm. The bartenders here are the best!
Admittedly it is a yuppie bar, but has a nice cross between laid-back and stylish.
Just checked out the new rooftop deck. Finally, a great view in Boulder with a full bar. Had dinner (the food is simple but fresh and good) and was surprised to hear live music up there! Met some friends and played pool downstairs, and got to hear another band, no cover! They have the nicest pool tables in town - best variety of things to do in town. One-stop shopping downtown for all my entertainment needs. Gotta check out the Jazz upstairs on Sunday.
At Least it had a Cool Fishtank.
This place just plain sucks. Too many yuppies squeezed into a bar the size of a sardine can! The bar was 6 deep so you couldn't even get a drink, every pool table in the place was taken the whole night, and the size of the dance floor was as big as a paper towel. Definitely not a laid back atmostphere...too stuffy and trendy. At least it had a cool fishtank to gaze at while waiting in line for a half an hour for a $6 beer in Boulder's meat market.
The most pretentious place in Boulder....
In a town of pretentious bars, this is the worst. Its a scene, not a bar. If you like to dress up and try to look cool, and wish to surround yourself with hollow people who like to do the same, then this is your place. Not worth the effort -- go to the Pearl Street Pub and Cellar (about 30 seconds away) instead.
