I visited on a Monday afternoon/evening. The bar itself smells pretty bad, and the drink selection was okay. The bartender was clearly plastered, and she got both of my drink orders wrong. It was an Avery IPA both times. It gets worse. When I closed...More

Definitely expect a dive bar…but a fun one! Everyone is really friendly but its a college scene and you may stand out if you aren't typically part of that scene.

If you get sick, hitched or ejected from going to this type of an establishment, welcome to the dumpster, honey. Not for amateurs.

Filthy! Beer glasses were covered in stains. You can get a drink at a great price, but definitely pay for the atmosphere. Not recommended.

Bad service. Disrespectful. Period. Not worth your time. Boulder has many, MANY good bars, but this is NOT one of them. Seriously.
