Envisioned by owner Zdenek Srom, the Bohemian Biergarten has an old worldly charm that is very endearing. Long communal tables made from more than a century old reclaimed wood, elegant wooden rafters, high ceilings, vintage lighting and antique decorations give this place a traditional European beer-hall touch to it. The menu features various sausage dishes, pretzels, small plates and daily specials. European draft beers are the reigning stars here though you may find a few local ones as well. Regular live music by DJs and local musicians add to the entertainment here. Bohemian Biergarten transports you to a different place altogether while still being in the heart of the city.

Round Midnight is one of the most popular nightclubs in Boulder and the Pearl Street mall district. Located in a basement area that stretches beneath multiple buildings on Pearl Street, Round Midnight plays music of all kinds, serves wine, mixers, and lots of different beers (including local micro-brews). As you can imagine, students and locals in the area love this spot. There aren't any particular theme nights, but the cover charge is minimal, and the occasional live music acts are a real treat. Best of all, Round Midnight's dance floor is huge and open and always filled. For those more interested in dancing and socializing than drinking and themed clubs, this is the best place in Boulder to try. - Sabrina Zirakzadeh

The Cup is a locally run coffeehouse that is the one of the most popular student cafes on the Pearl Street Mall. The most common complaint about the cafe is, in fact, that is often too crowded to sit down for a hot drink and snacks with friends, even during off-peak hours. Still, if you are lucky enough to get in, it's easy to understand the Cup's popularity. The atmosphere is bohemian and chic, there are very few aluminum tables and chairs but many couches and corner booths, the prices are lower than any other cafe on Pearl Street, and the espresso-based drinks are addictive and delicious. The family that owns the Cup runs it themselves and keeps things friendly to both regulars and newcomers alike. A great stop while you explore Pearl Street, but don't expect to sit in. - Sabrina Zirakzadeh

The mussels with clams and shrimp are a popular starter. The grilled salmon, served atop a bed of saffron potatoes, highlights the menu. You can also choose from veal, chicken and beef selections.
