Let's face it Boise has a ton of bars, breweries and spots where one can enjoy a beer or a glass of wine. The truth is that not all watering holes are created equal. In early October the people at Western Collective decided to run with a "Pop-Up" concept in downtown Boise called The Nighthawk. This was their initial post on Instagram:

"The secret is out... Welcome to The Nighthawk, Western Collective’s winter popup in downtown Boise.

The Nighthawk is for the seekers. The curious ones, the youthful and open-minded adventurers. Explorers who know that possessions are fleeting, but experiences last a lifetime.

The Nighthawk is a kinetic collision of beer, wine, art, leather, candles, neon, and vibes.

Our kindred are this generation of artists, creatives, thinkers and folks who simply embody good times; those who thrive on connection, unbridled fun, and meaningful experiences.

The Nighthawk was built to engage life’s intoxicating ephemerality and the warm companionship needed to experience it to the fullest.

Grab a drink, make a friend, stay a while."

I had to experience this so I found a way to get in on opening weekend. The mystery involved in trying to find a place that had no sign and was clearly a temporary situation made me feel as if I was back in the prohibition days. I remember wondering if the woman dressed all in black sitting on a random chair in what looked like an abandoned section of a basement was the key to opening the door to this speakeasy ( turns out I was right). Once inside the stone walls, the leather couches and the raw feel of the place made it an experience to remember. Unfortunately this weekend is your last chance to have that experience according to this post by their Instagram account.
