Westword's Description

Below the historic Hotel Boulderado lies the labyrinthine (and aptly named) Catacombs Bar. In contrast to the classy, upscale hotel located above, Catacombs is a funky, off beat venue that caters to students and other young people. The dirt-cheap drink specials attract mostly a college and twenty-something crowd, as do the air hockey, foosball, pool tables and video games that are seemingly hidden in different rooms throughout the establishment. DJs spin hip-hop and Top 40 on the recently renovated dance floor every weekend, and Catacombs runs trivia and karaoke nights during the week. One of the more enduringly popular student hangouts.

    Your typical bar for the most part, but among the low-class hangouts it's the best. Lots of college students but actually displays more diversity than many of the other bars in town.

    Cheap well drinks, Geeks Who Drink Trivia, 15 cent wings during happy hour and a cozy pub atmosphere with deep boths, pool tables and air hockey!

    This place is the best underground (literally) bar in Boulder. It has the best drink specials, live entertainment, and so many rooms you can get lost. There are several bars so you never have to wait too long for a drink and even though the atmosphere is rustic, it's always a good time for sure. And even if you don't feel like drinking, you can play a plethora of games that only cost $.25!

    Wait till the bar tender asks you what you want, shouting helps no one

    Sign up for a Catacombs card = happy hour all the time, and SUPER happy hour on Sunday! (Catacombsbar.net)

    Here for ping pong? Yeah, the guy that's ruling the table is Akira. Buy him a beer or better yet a couple shots and you'll have a better chance.
