The Ranch Club was actually one of the first landmarks in the Treasure Valley I could remember when I moved to Boise.  My first remote with 103.5 KISS FM was at the Pawn 1 just down Chinden from the iconic dive bar (most famous for it’s giant horse on the roof.) 

Years later, I ended up getting a chance to go inside when we hosted one of our Boise Music Festival ticket stops there.  Ranch Club has always been one of the Treasure Valley’s favorite dive bars and was one of the only remaining clubs that allowed patrons to smoke indoors. But after February 12th, no one really knew what happened to Ranch Club.  It quietly closed it’s doors and posted a “back soon” sign outside a few weeks later.

Now we know when "soon" is! According to the Idaho Statesman, Tom Grainey’s owner, Jason Kovac, bought the building to add to his bar empire and will celebrate their grand reopening on Friday, June 2nd!

The space has been renovated to return to it's roots as a country bar.  Kovac also wanted to bring live music back to the bar since it's been advertised on the giant horse sign for years.  That's why he put in a new stage and will have live music from Buddy Devore and the Faded Cowboys on Friday night and Dusty Leigh and the Claim Jumpers on Saturday.

In addition to Grainey’s, Kovac also owns The Silly Birch, Whiskey Bar and The Shed (formerly The Lift 2.)
