A great place to go just to relax. Nobody here is trying to be something they are not. Get bartender rapport with the customers, and unbeatable specials. Not a better place on pearl street to people watch then the patio of "The Pub". Great bartenders with Kat, Kyle, Etc.
The cook could lose the attitude, but aside from that it the best bar in Boulder. Smoking in the basement, With a typical crowd of regulars always willing to share a game of pool or start a conversation about anything under the sun.
Pros: Location, Cost, atmosphere
