Bar Hopping for All Occasions

Pick your own path


With about a billion bars in the Boise area, sometimes it's hard to pick where to go. But that abundance of booze-swilling establishments also means there are plenty of options to tailor your night on the town to your needs. Raising a little hell with your buds? We've got that. Trying to act all grown-up when your parents come to visit? We've got that, too.

Now the guessing game has been taken out of achieving a proper night on the town. Just pick the reason you're hitting the scene and follow along. A note of warning though, since many of the tours intersect, it's easy to get sidetracked.
