    Great whiskey bar with good food and a nice rooftop patio/lounge. Rvidently Man vs Food did a wing challenge here. Don't make that mistake. The wings are legit. Ditto for the bbq.

    Great place to grab a bite to eat or a drink in the summer. Be sure to sit on the deck located on the roof top! Exceptional views of the city and the surrounding mountains!

    One of Boulder's oldest taverns now serves wild selections like New Belgium's Transatlantic Kriek, Perennial Berliner Weisse, and several bottled wild European beers.

    Sit on the roof during the summer with an amazing view of the Flatirons. Order the yam chips with guac to start. You can't go wrong with any entree

    The comfort food served at the West End Tavern is what would result if a fast-moving drunken picnic crashed headlong into a great neighborhood bar. Read more

    Hunter took great care of us in the upstairs bar area. Try the single barrel bourbon taster for just $10!

    The Thursday evening special for energy drink-based beverages is dangerous, but wondrous nonetheless. Don't remember the exact price but its around $3 for a generous pint.

    Maybe the best happy hour in Boulder. $3 Stone IPA takes you to hop heaven. Rotating beer list is insane. Don't miss West End.

    Never had a bad dining experience, the roof deck has great views of the Flatirons and their burgers are awesome. Try the Dr. Pepper sauce!

    An updated American tavern, the West End offers an amazing selection of bourbons at its antique wooden bar and on its rooftop patio overlooking the Flatirons.

    The onion soup is awesome! Fish and chips is greasy and boring, mahi sandwich was the biggest rip ever! Tiny piece of overseasoned fish, for $15... Never again! Stick with the beer and appetizers!
