The Modern Bar: New Menu, New Team

At the Modern, the season is officially open with a new menu and a new kitchen and bar team—delivering the same, long-standing Modern tradition of hospitality and excellence.

Modern Bar Re-Opens for Business

A bartender at the modern with tattoos on their forearm, gently pushes the Western Dynasty cocktail across the 3form countertop towards the photographer. The craft cocktail is a maroon color with a large clear ice cube and a twist of lemon served in a highball glass. The bar behind is stocked with typical bar tools like shakers, strainers, and other garnishes. On the wall behind the bartender you can see part of the liquor cabinet in the mid-century building in downtown boise idaho historic linen district.

Guests can expect the innovative cocktails and carefully curated wine and beer selection the Modern is known for, but the food on offer will be distinctive and delicious small bites, not full entrees. The Modern will launch a full dinner menu this fall.

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.
