Pearl Street Mall reviews

Visiting Boulder and enjoyed Bands on the Bricks. It's obvious why the area is a tourist attraction and shopping destination. The area is super clean and stores quite elegant. Bring lots of money. The Bands on the Bricks had a fantastic brewery for their "beer garden" (read adult cage/playpen not nearly sizable enough for those that could get in). I loved their grapefruit shandy. It was 80s night and although that's not my thing the band did play the hits adequately enough. (I have worked with musicians for 20+ years and admit I'm not easy to impress). The crowd dug them though, which is what's important. Had sandwich and a beer at a joint called The Pub, I think. Ultimately recommended and figure there's something for everyone and it's a nice walk to boot.
Pearl Street Mall is an upper class shopping center in Boulder. I like the vibe, it's pretty heady here. It's also very family/community oriented and there are a lot of affluent people that hang out here. Lot's of good places to eat within walking distance here. Cool shops. This was always a fun place to visit.
