(Denver, CO) Stout Street Social has been catering to theater-goers and convention attendees in Denver since late 2014 when it opened. Now, the restaurant has expanded its social circle with a second location in Boulder that’s serving shucked oysters, and hand-tossed pizzas and will soon be brewing its own craft beer, too.
Frank Day—a prolific Colorado restaurateur known for his craft beer-forward concepts that have ranged from Old Chicago to the Rock Bottom Brewery chain—debuted Boulder Social this fall.
Boulder Social’s central Boulder location at 1600 38th St. is serendipitous: From the mid-1970s to 1990, Day (who just turned 90) operated his Tex-Mex concept José Muldoon’s in the same spot. In recent years, the building has run as a brewery, most recently the home of Fate Brewing.
“I wouldn't have just chosen any place in Boulder,” Day said. “I chose this place because of a lot of factors that make it a good location for what Boulder Social stands for—a good place for food, drinks and families. The building was available at the right time with a brewery included which was a positive.”
Brewery operations will continue at the Boulder Social with brewmaster Rodney Taylor (formerly the head brewer at Walnut Brewery) taking over the taps. Boulder Social will start tapping beers in late November or early December.
Boulder Social’s menu is diverse, with fresh-shucked oysters from the East and West coasts, sushi rolls, prime rib sliders, crispy buffalo cauliflower and fig and apple burrata—and that’s just a taste of the appetizers. Main dishes include sandwiches, burgers, green chile mac and cheese, fish and chips, Rocky Mountain trout and all types of pizzas with gluten-free crusts available.
The space has 15 large screen TVs, a central bar and an all-weather patio that can be heated and misted; covered and shaded. Plus, there are fun yard games to play with your family, friends or co-workers.
Boulder Social runs happy hours with $6 mini pizzas and other small plates to pair with discounted beer and cocktails. Happy hour is 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and the late night social hour is 8 p.m. to close Sunday through Thursday and 9 p.m. to close Friday and Saturday.
Boulder Social is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday; 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. The restaurant serves brunch (think: breakfast pizzas, hangover burger, chicken and waffles) from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
