The windows still bear signage from the bookstore that once inhabited the second-level space that now holds this loungey alter ego of the breezy, farm-to-table-focused Kitchen -- but all other hints of its literary past have been cleared out in favor of low, candle-lit tables, a romantic, glowing fireplace and a long wooden bar. More casual and beverage-focused than its downstairs counterpart, the Kitchen sees diners packing in for appetizers and entrees made in a wood-fired oven on weeknights; young professional residents rule on the weekends, sipping craft beers and martinis beneath dim lights and sexy beats. Since it's usually devoid of college students at all times, the Kitchen [Upstairs] could be Boulder's only truly adult bar.
Tips from foursquare
Voted Best Croissant in Westword's Best of Denver 2011!
Macaroni and Cheese and the Eton Mess. Trust me.
This comfortable lounge above The Kitchen has a terrific selection of spirits (like Leopold Bros. Absinthe Verte) and hosts a daily "tasting hour" of affordable small plates and seasonal drinks.
The Full English breakfast, incredible!
