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.

Lets be clear, the Downer is a divey pool hall/college bar. It is darkly lit, smells a bit odd, and they're best deal is for PBR ($6 pitchers all night every night). However, if you are in town on a weekend night, and want to...More

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