Loved watching the art the bartender has in making cocktails. Great to watch, better to drink. Sat at the bar one night and patio the next, was a great part of my vacation experience. A must go to if you like great cocktails!

Neat vibe to this lounge on the corner. Drinks were stiff and presented well. The staff seemed very helpful and was fun to work with on new drinks. Didn't get chance to eat anything but seemed like lots of people were eating. Seemed average on...More

This is the place in Boise for cocktails. The venue is smack dab in the middle of town, with floor to ceiling windows so lots of natural light before dusk. The drinks are classic, but they also have new and imaginative selections along with some...More

We were so impressed by The Mode's happy hour, that we came back, 2 more times! The quality of cocktails turn simple drinks into a work of craftsmanship and you can tell the staff takes their art seriously. But its not overkill, its pure delight!

Whenever anyone asks about a good place for a mixed drink, this is one of my go-to recommends (I'm originally from Utah where recommend is a noun). I live in Boise so can sample the goods regularly.

Watered down cocktail and ridiculously overpriced cheese platter. Not going to be my favorite place for a pre dinner drink.

I really cant wait to see what opens up next. I hope to see a wine bar and eatery. Something classy with tapas or something of the sort. They have filled this location with over priced drinks, poor service and bad attitudes. I live downtown,...More

This is my favorite place for a craft cocktail in Boise and my husband and I go every time we have a sitter. This is the foodie version of cocktails. House-made bitters, imported cherry garnishes, and the best bartenders in Boise. We get lost in...More
