Have you ever been the star at any of these Boise dive bars?
We embarked upon an adventure to find classic dive bars in and around Boise. It was a tough job, but someone had to do it. Drinks were had, money was spent, memories were made, and new friendships were forged along the way. Bonus: two bars are dog-friendly!
In all, the mission was a success! Now we're ready and stoked to share the fruits of our drunken labor with you. If you're looking for low-key, no frills, no fuss fun, any one of these bars could become your home away from home. Some are nestled in the comfortable confines of neighborhoods, some are on main street strips, and some embraced the corner bar calling.
Our team is passionately devoted to supporting local businesses, both big and small! If our list of 15 Boise dive bars inspires you to patronize any or all of them, kindly consider writing a review about your experience. If you're up for going the distance, share some pics with your review! Bar owners, their regulars, and prospective patrons alike will appreciate your opinion and effort...and so will we!
