Less than a year after moving in near Boise State University and Ann Morrison Park, this bar is getting a new name and a facelift! 

The Lift 2, we hardly knew thee. According to the Idaho Statesman, the bar will re-open as "The Shed" on January 1st.  The owner just sold the original The Lift location on State Street and is now looking for a way to stand apart from that restaurant.

With the new name comes a new menu of made from scratch items.  The owner hopes to put a new spin on their already popular pub food.  They're also planning to add a few, less expensive beers to their tap list that already includes local favorites like Sockeye and Crooked Fence.

The new sign goes up on New Year's day but the renovations that will add two patios to the location won't be completed until early spring.
