In everything we do, we’re closely following Centers for Disease Control and American Hotel and Lodging (AHLA) guidelines to keep our guests and team members safe.

The City of Boise is currently in Stage 3:
Based off rising COVID-19 numbers, Central District Health (CDH) has issued an order for Ada County to return to Stage 3 operations effective at 12:01 a.m. on June 24. The CDH Order includes some variations from the state’s Stage 3. Notably, Ada County bars and nightclubs will not be allowed to remain open. For more information visit the city’s website.

City of Boise Face Covering Requirement:
Boise Mayor Lauren McLean has issued a public health order effective at 12:01 a.m. Saturday, July 4 for 30 days unless amended, rescinded, or extended, requiring everyone to use face coverings in the City of Boise to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). Coverings that completely cover the nose and mouth are now required in all indoor and outdoor public places. For exceptions visit the city’s website.

Meal plan:

For now, the Modern Bar & Restaurant will remain closed until such time as we can foresee an end to community-wide transmission of the COVID-19 virus. Given that our bar is attached to a hotel, we cannot accept the risk of running a restaurant during a pandemic, possibly continuing to spread the virus and endanger our staff and guests—our friends and family.

Our sibling restaurant Txikiteo is one block north of the hotel at 14th & Idaho streets. View current hours and menus at
