When Hotel Boulderado opened its doors in 1909, the City of Boulder was dry. Once home to dozens of saloons, breweries, distilleries and gambling halls, Boulder reformed its ways in 1907 and outlawed the sale of “demon rum” and spirits within city limits. With the casual ambience of a 1920s speakeasy, License No. 1 is aptly named for acquiring one of Boulder’s first liquor licenses to serve hard liquor in a restaurant after local “prohibition” ended in 1969. Known for offering tantalizing cocktails made from an array of top-shelf liquors, along with wines and local craft beers, License No. 1 is one of Boulder’s favorite places to celebrate happy hour with daily cocktail and food specials from 5 – 7 pm and live music from local bands on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings. Billiards, skee ball and a photo booth are available for added entertainment. OPEN DAILY AT 5 PM.
