Living in Boulder: The Sink



When visiting Colorado, a voice tells you to visit Boulder.

But when visiting Boulder, you don’t dare miss “The Sink.” Located on The Hill near the University of Colorado campus, Boulder’s oldest restaurant started in 1923 and  is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. “The Sink” is an institution in Boulder that many locals and visitors (some famous) have enjoyed

throughout the years. “The Sink” serves the best pizza and burgers in town.

A recent press release provides some insights to what the owners, Mark Heinritz, Chris Heinritz, and Tell Jones have been brainstorming about why this celebratory year is so important: “We are eager to honor the amazing history of this restaurant. The Sink truly belongs to everyone who’s passed through here. There are always new buildings, new streetscapes, but The Sink has stayed consistent, always here welcoming people with good food and a great atmosphere,” Heinritz shares.


For more on the history of the “The Sink” or to make a reservation to celebrate their centennial, visit The Sink’s website.
