Boondocks

The best dive bar in town

Owned by Shawn Bermudez, the man behind several retail clothing shops, bars and food trucks in Lower Montrose, this bar is the grungy older brother that welcomes everyone-- even if it might not seem like that at first glance. 

There is a humongous pierced and tattooed bouncer with a gruff yet friendly voice, a large patio space filled with skinny-jeans-wearing twenty-somethings smoking Marlboro Reds and celebrating their youth.  Don’t be put off by the equally (if not more so) tattooed and pierced bartenders with fashionable facial hair—they are also super-friendly and attentive to everyone.  The atmosphere is hip with a Hellish vibe thanks to the darkness and the red lighting emanating from the giant red lantern overhead. Boondocks slamming with hard rock almost every night, unless you're one of the fortunate few who know about their popular 90's night which packs a diverse group of dance-loving locals.
