For stiff drinks minus the flair, this cozy full-service downtown bar caters to sports enthusiasts and alternative 20-somethings alike. Local and national sports memorabilia enhance the bar's interior, located in the basement of the historic Idanha Hotel. Conversation is encouraged in this dim and smokey, but strangely charming tavern. Although housed in small quarters, chairs and stools take up most of the space. The draft beer selection is limited. If you prefer premium beer, buy it in the bottle.
For a small escape from downtown's hustle-and-bustle, visit this fun spot. Swallow some succulent steamers from the East Coast, chew on a finger steak and grab your favorite drink. If you get bored, try your luck at the horseshoe pits in the beer garden, football, pool, arcade games or darts. The Dutch Goose makes great drinks too.
A great place to come for live music, this tavern is also a favorite bar among Boise locals. The interior is immaculate and charming, and local rock-'n'-roll favorites "The Rebecca Scott Decision" and "Fat John & The Three Slims" jam here regularly. There is limited seating, and a small dance floor. Downstairs is J.T. Toad's, another live music venue.
Popular with the college kids, Suds Tavern is one of the most popular bars to go to catch a game or play some pool. With minimally priced food and drinks and fast, friendly service, it's no wonder Suds Tavern is a favorite among the masses. Bar snacks like chicken wings and burgers are favorites among the crowd, while the bar menu favorites include beer, which is available both on tap and by bottles, and a variety of zippy cocktails. The decor consists of sports-themed memorabilia and the flat-screen TVs show the ongoing games. Live music nights featuring local bands just add another reason to come here.
