Have you ever been to a haberdashery? Neither had we, or even heard of the vintage clothing store for the elegant gentleman, until Brooklyn’s on Boulder.
This speakeasy uses the beautifully designed haberdashery storefront as their entrance and even included a doorbell and classic slide-view peep hole for entry into the “employees only” back room. Once inside it’s a quaint little bar with stools and couches in an almost unfinished space.
Our favorite takeaway from B on B was that they make a lot of their own spirits and liqueurs in house. The Alpine liqueur was divine and we took a bottle home as well as a bottle of their strawberry ginger gin.
The drinks were classics and expertly made. The menu listed typical drinks you may favor to match with a more elevated craft cocktail to enjoy. Most notable on the list was the Elon Musk – a $100 cocktail that is hand crafted to your favorite palette preferences and served in a brand new goblet that they elaborately SMASH when you’re done – just as lavish and eccentric as Mr. Musk himself!
To top it all off, Brooklyn’s on Boulder has a back door to exit, which is always a speakeasy bonus point in our book! It was a wonderful find in Colorado Springs, and we look forward to visiting again.
Your Alpine drinking friends,
