The Spotted James

About us

Hello Boulder, Colorado! We would like to introduce you to The Spotted James. We’re a little Old School Hollywood meets the Wild West with a hint of French Quarter flare (or as my wife likes to call it, Trashy Victorian). We’re located in a classic watering hole location off the Pearl Street mall (RIP Walrus Saloon, we miss you), and we’ve got drinks, dancing, DJ’s, pool tables (cheapest around town), darts, lounging areas and an amazing staff just dying to take care of you and have a good time. All at the base of the Flatirons!

We didn’t want to give you another basement dive bar in Boulder, there’s plenty of those. We wanted to give you something purrrrdy and shiiiiny………….with DIVE BAR PRICES! So that’s what we did. You’re welcome.

Need a Happy Hour Drink after work to take a load off? We’ve got that. Need to shoot some pool on well kept competition quality tables? We’ve got that. Need to figure out if you’re any good at darts? We’ve got that. Need some couches just to slouch into and put your feet up? We’ve got that. Need an exceptional whiskey and tequila selection?…There’s a trend here…We’ve got that too! All with the finest, feistiest and sassiest staff to boot, they truly are the best.
