Let the locals show you around…

Whether you live in the Boulder/Denver area or are just visiting, there’s always something new and fun going on in the food and beverage scene.  A guided culinary tour helps you experience it, bite by bite, sip by sip, at the best places in town.  Rather than be another anonymous face in a restaurant, enjoy the special treatment Local Table Tours can offer.  After all, the best way to get  to know what’s going on in the food and beverage scene is on a culinary tour with a local foodie.
Where might you eat or drink on tour? Visit our Featured Restaurants list for more information on some of the Boulder and Denver establishments featured on a Local Table Tour. Also, this list serves as a guide to places we love. Trust us… we’re out eating and drinking all the time… or, um, often.
All of the stops on our tours are relatively close.  Tours last between 1.5 – 2.5 hours (depending on the tour), so please wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to walk.  Dressing in layers is recommended.  Also, at more than a mile high, the air may seem thin.  Don’t worry, we eat, drink, walk, and repeat. No running involved. And if you’re from sea level and gasping for breath (which is unlikely), we’ll send you to the local oxygen bar.
Interested in grabbing a table or some seats at the bar somewhere noteworthy after your tour? Ask Megan where to go. She’ll make you a reservation with VIP treatment. Call 303.909.5747 for details.

New~ Beer Tasting Tours

Enjoy a hoppy stroll through downtown Boulder and visit some of Megan’s favorite local breweries, tap rooms, and beer-loving bar tenders. Whether you’re a home brewer, regular-ole beer-lover, or recently appreciative of one of America’s favorite beverages, come discover what it means to live in the Napa Valley of Beer on an engaging, entertaining, beer hop. 21+ and IDs will be checked.
Second and Fourth Sunday each month, 3:00 p.m. $35 per person.

Private Dining Experiences

Dining Tour at Q's

Let Local Table Tours’ owner Megan Bucholz wine and dine you at her favorite spots on a culinary tour-de-cuisine through Boulder’s or Denver’s finest independent restaurants.  Each tour is unique, but begins with either a wine tasting or cocktail tasting for an educationally interactive first stop.  We continue on to an appetizer followed by a main dish for a progressive meal as well as opportunities to meet the chefs.  Decadent dessert completes the tour.  Featured restaurants may include: The Kitchen, SALT, Cured, Q’s Restaurant, Oak at Fourteenth, Frasca, Riffs, Pizzeria Locale, Black Cat Bistro, The Bitter Bar, Green Russel, Squeaky Bean, Old Major, Williams & Graham, Euclid Hall, Restaurant Kevin Taylor, and Coohills.
(Inquire about Private Tours-303-909-5747)
On request: starting at $150 per person with a 2 person minimum booking, includes food, libations, and a gift of some of Megan’s favorite spices from Savory Spice Shop.

A Taste of Boulder- Downtown Dining Tours

Our Downtown Dining Tours feature some of Boulder’s most popular restaurants and foodie hot-spots on Pearl Street.  Let a local food-loving guide bring you to a handful of Boulder’s best independently owned places for cocktails, dinner, dessert, and food specialty shops for discount shopping. This is a dining tour, not just a sampling tour, so food will be served at two stops and you’ll end with dessert. Plan to come ready to eat, not just nibble. Almost all guests are full by dessert, so please keep that in mind and have a light lunch before the tour. If you’re interested in getting drinks after the tour, your guide will send you to some of our favorite spots. You probably won’t feel like eating for a few hours after the tour, but we can make you a reservation for a later dinner at an establishment not featured on your tour if interested. Just let us know. Vegetarians are easily accommodated if you let us know with at least 24 hours’ notice of your tour.
(Inquire about private tours)
Fridays 3:00pm, Saturdays 2:30 pm $70 per person, includes food, libations, tax, and gratuity at each restaurant.

Cocktail Tours in Boulder and Denver

Yes! Cocktail tours!  We are the first (and so far only) cocktail tour company in Colorado.  Cocktail tours are a new way to experience the best watering holes in Boulder and Denver.  Each featured bar is unique, and together they’re elevating our cocktail culture.  Take a couple hours to appreciate the art of a well-crafted cocktail and join us in Boulder on Thirsty Thursdays and in Denver on Saturdays for a lesson on the major spirits, ice, shaking, stirring, and all things booze.  Taste various professional creations and meet some of the best tenders of the bar in town. You must be 21+ to register.
There are themed cocktail tours during certain months, but otherwise, we’re always mixing up the order of our stops and our bartenders are always mixing something imaginative, creative, experimental, or classic. We never know- It’s bartender’s choice.  So, join us for a number of these educational tours. Think of these tours as private cocktail classes- be prepared to learn something interesting and taste something new.
Boulder- Thursdays 4:000 pm, $40 per person  Denver- Saturdays 4:00 pm, $40 per person.

Coffee and Pastry Tours

There are a lot of independently owned coffee shops in downtown Boulder, but few of them are as dedicated to the art of a respectably brewed cup as those selected for our tours.  Each establishment we visit pours a locally roasted cup (you need to consider the altitude while roasting), yet all are quite unique.  Learn about differences in beans, roasts, and brewing methods based on the bean’s origin, brewing at altitude, and dare to ask about the “chocolate” in a Mocha-Java (hint: there is NO chocolate). Coffee samples, a light breakfast, and engaging conversation make this tour an ideal way to start weekend.
1st and 3rd Saturdays each month (and by special request) 10:30 am, $25 per person.

Market to Table Tours

Enjoy a light meal from a fantastic farm-to-table restaurant and find out why Boulder is considered to be a destination city for food lovers and chefs.  Our tour starts downtown for some farm-to-table cuisine before walking over to the largest farmer’s market in Colorado where we’ll meet farmers and continue eating locally sourced foods.  After dessert, you can continue to explore the market on your own, or enjoy the live music and the weekly entertainment at Boulder’s famous Farmers’ Market. Bring a canvas bag- You might want to shop!
June- September: Wednesdays 4:00pm
To check for tour times and availability, please go to our Boulder Calendar.

Boulder Farmers’ Market Tours

Enjoy a guided tour of the Saturday Boulder Farmers’ Market, the largest market in Colorado. Megan will meet you at the market and guide you through to some of her favorite farmers and food purveyors. As a weekly farmers’ market shopper for eight years, Megan knows the best stands, so stay close by her side.  You won’t just stroll through the market.  You’ll be learning something about it at each stop along the way on a guided shopping excursion.
May- October, Saturdays, by request.

Welcome to the
Holiday Inn Express Boulder

Boulder is a quirky place that has carved its special niche
in the Rocky Mountain foothills since 1858. It's a city that embraces its uniqueness and offers much in the way of attractions and outdoor activities.

The Holiday Inn Express® Boulder hotel is located just off Hwy 36
near companies like IBM, Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman,
thus ensuring you can get to meetings easily.
The University of Colorado and National Center for Atmospheric Research
are also near our Boulder hotel.
 If you need to host an event, our 400-square feet breakfast area
 is available for small gatherings, and if you need to use a computer or printer,
the business center is available 24-hours a day at our hotel.

In Boulder you'll discover that people spend a lot of time hiking,
mountain-biking, rock-climbing, kayaking and playing golf.
This outdoor playground is enjoyable year-round,
especially when you head to Eldora Ski Resort for fun in the snow,
just 30 minutes from downtown Boulder.

Our hotel is near great restaurants like
The Mediterranean and the Greenbriar Inn
and shopping at Pearl Street Mall and Flatiron Crossing.

Whether you're here to taste tea at Celestial Seasonings
or to attend meetings at IBM,
we're sure you'll enjoy our Boulder Colorado hotel's amenities.

 Our fitness center, seasonal outdoor pool,
year-round outdoor hot tub and
complimentary hot breakfast are not to be missed.  

Whether you decide to venture outside and enjoy the mountain views or stay in and enjoy a movie on HBO, you can breathe fresh air. Our Boulder hotel is 100% smoke-free for your health and comfort.
