  • The World Famous Dark Horse – bar and grill in boulder
  • Cool, dive bar, eclectic, fun, friendly, quirkyAccording to many reviews on, the WFDH’s ambience is described as whimsical, a dive, a dark dirty little bar, rich woody establishment, a college bar, a crazy yard sale at a hoarder's house (, 2011). This is how the WFDH wants to be and should be described. It is not a ritzy, bling-y, heath food establishment. The people who come to the WFDH are looking for a greasy, cheap, and delicious burger and/or wings and a beer or soda to wash it down.

  • from 1920s era shoes and a big boy burger statue, to a horse-drawn hearse.
  • College students and young professionals.
  • Weekly meeting to determine posts.
