3. The Kitchen [Next Door], 1035 Pearl Street
The Kitchen [Next Door], the cool and relaxed progeny of more upscale parents, The Kitchen and The Kitchen [Upstairs], has become one of the best new places to drink in Boulder since its opening last year. Check it out on a Sunday night, when they have live music and half-price Colorado craft beer pitchers.

2. Bitter Bar, 835 Walnut Street
Bitter Bar appeals to the intelligent hipster. Enter this dark and swanky bar and marvel at the ultra-knowledgeable mad scientists behind the bar, who mix up some of the most interesting (and seasonal!) cocktails in Boulder. Come through the secret back door and try the Re-Tox, a concoction made with Caprock Gin, fresh lemon, maple syrup and cayenne pepper.

i think you might be confused about the term hipster. mountain sun...the downer. oh cmon'. think: williamsburg instead. hipsterism is all about fetishizing authentic elements of past and present culture. and it's largely an urban phenomenon. boulder misses the boat here on every count. any boulder  hipster i know is having a house party or sharing a beer with a vet at the american legion on 28th...or taking the rtd (fixed gear bike in tow) to denver to hit meadowlark or matchbox NoRiNo. oh damn, i gave it away.

 Wait a minute... "It's rich, white, straight people who like quinoa, climbing, and yoga" - those *are* hipsters, right? Or did my time in Silver Lake cofuse me?

Thanks - I will make sure to avoid these bars. If you could compile a comprehensive lists of where hipsters gather and other helpful tips on avoiding them I would greatly appreciate it!.

Any definition of "hipster" that includes the crowd on a given night at Mountain Sun, Bitter Bar and Sundowner basically includes everyone under 30.  But what the hell, I like these kinds of lists.  And I had no idea that the Laughing Goat served beer, so I learned something.  Carry on.

LOL you're right, my bad. I forgot to include the rich, white CU student contingent. And now my description of Boulder is complete.

You just must not be hip enough. Hippies are so hip, it hurts. They can be hipsters too; they just smell bad.
