Pearl Street staple, the Boulder Cafe, will close next month, the Daily Camera reported. After 24 years of business in the heart of Boulder, co-owner Stephen Tebo made a statement that it was time to "pursue new ideas and concepts" elsewhere, leaving the prime location up for grabs. The only insight Tebo has provided about the possible new owners is that they will likely be from Colorado but not local to Boulder.
With the lease expiring on June 26, the public can expect the Boulder Cafe to close about a week before that date. General manager Rob Bicket shared that "loyal patrons are most upset about losing their favorite happy hour spot," which begins daily at 3 p.m. with deals on all types of booze.
Tebo also alluded to a very necessary remodeling of the venue, which will push back the time in which a new business can open. He projected the beginning of the year as the earliest for a possible opening. In the meantime, Boulder Cafe regulars need get their fix before they close their doors for good.
