Shine Restaurant & Gathering Place is a place for locals, travelers, visitors and passersby to celebrate and create community through nourishing food, award winning house-brewed beer, hand-crafted potions and community gatherings.

Founded by “The Blissful Sisters”—triplets Jill, Jessica and Jennifer Emich, formerly of the acclaimed restaurant Trilogy Wine Bar & Lounge—Shine was inspired by their desire to celebrate the Boulder experience and keep the community alive and thriving.

Every bite of food, sip of beer, drop of potion and gathering vibrates with energy and well-being. The sisters serve up plates of Paleo, vegan and vegetarian, farm-to-table comfort food made in a 100% Gluten-Free and GMO-Free kitchen.

Add to that a list of award-winning brews from Shine Brewing Co., hand-crafted herbal healing potions, live music, dance, yoga and celebrations, and you quickly begin to realize how truly extraordinary the Shine experience is.
