  • Play stump the bartender.
  • Blue Velvet is to die for! Hint: iPhone helpful for the flashlight app.
  • Go Bruins!
  • Sazerac. A cocktail that so few places outside of New Orleans do well. Bitter Bar does it well. Recommended.
  • try to get a seat with the lights on... unless you have a flashlight :)
  • They no longer have a kitchen, but the drinks are legit.
  • My favorite drink is their Blue Velvet - 42Below vodka, fresh lemon, orgeat, creme de violette and fresh lavender. If its not on menu, order it, they can make it for you. Boulder's best cocktail bar.
  • Angel's Envy with a big ice cube and those amazing cherries.
  • The beer and a shot of whiskey is a great deal and delicious!
  • Get pitted.
  • I recommend alcohol!
  • Super nice staff, amazing cocktails.
  • Very nice drinks and ambiance. Bit expensive.
  • Best cocktails in Boulder!
  • Cocktails on tap are always a great place to start.
  • All of the cocktails are incredible, especially the gin varieties.
  • Off the main drag, awesome cocktails and great service. Reminds me of one of my favorite places from my college town. Get the Looking Glass.
  • Great music and atmosphere. Drinks are fantastic.
  • Cozy atmosphere and good drinks. One of my favorites in Boulder.
  • even better cocktails now that they ditched the restaurant and went full bar mode
