Every bar or restaurant has its place within a community. But a space like Shine Restaurant & Gathering Place brings something truly special to Boulder. Founded by “The Blissful Sisters”—triplets Jill, Jessica and Jennifer Emich—Shine is not just an eatery, but a community center.
The Emich sisters created a restaurant focused around health and deliciousness, farm-to-table comfort food made in a kitchen that's 100% gluten-free and GMO-free; some dishes are paleo, some vegetarian, some vegan. (Try the tacos with wild salmon, pulled pork, or jackfruit; try the salads on their own, or with tempeh, local lamb, or even grass-fed buffalo.)
But there's so much more than the kitchen. Beer comes from Shine Brewing Co., brewed right onsite; "Shine Potions" are also brewed in-house, incorporating herbs, fresh juices, and flower essences. Wines are all from family-owned, sustainable vineyards.
Events held onsite include live music, yoga, movie screenings, educational events, and much more. And as an event space for private events -- meetings, parties, weddings, fundraisers -- Shine is unbeatable. Between the food, drink, and top-notch infrastructure -- and, of course, Shine's pure good energy -- it's an ideal home for any event in the Boulder area.
