…that’s pretty much the news. Last year in November, the Foundry, a Boulder landmark nightspot, closed its doors for good. Today, you can wine and dine in that very location again, under the sign of Absinthe House.
Well, not literally under the sign. The Foundry’s iconic marquee remains empty of letters. For now, a sandwich-board chalk sign will have to do.
It had its grand opening just last week, but it’s been operating since mid-August or thereabouts. According to the Daily Camera, its focus is on “audiophiles, …foodies, [and] the vino culture.” With a dance floor, live DJs, and 24 different absinthes, the array of sensory stimuli offered is promising. Westword describes the restaurant’s offerings in more detail.
Absinthe House is already on the Downtown Boulder website, so if you’ve got a Downtown Boulder gift card you can probably use it there.
And that’s the news, coming straight to you from the sidewalk of downtown Boulder. If you’ve already been, tell us what you think about the new Absinthe House in the comments below.
