Modern Hotel, Txikiteo Close Temporarily During Public Health Crisis

We are closely following each new development in the progression of the Covid-19 pandemic and have made the difficult decision to temporarily close the Modern and Txikiteo. We believe this is the most responsible action to take in the face of this new and growing public health crisis. We all know that health care workers are on the front lines treating the sick; our job in the hospitality industry is to do everything we can to make sure people stay healthy in the first place.

Now in its sixth season, Campfire Stories began on the patio at The Modern and quickly became a sell-out favorite feature of summer in Boise. The event expanded and moved to Txikiteo last year; all 2019 Campfire Stories evenings take place on the patio at Txikiteo, with writers and storytellers from all genres telling tales loosely organized around a theme.
