Hitching Post - Maybe you'll see Norm in the corner. Or Cliff sitting next to him. Maybe Sam behind the bar. Yep, Hitching Post is that comfortable, cozy neighborhood bar - the kind where the bartender seems to know everyone who walks through the door.

Globe Lounge
(208) 442-8313
306 N Kings Rd
Nampa, ID
Globe Lounge - Twenty dollar cover? Nope. Celebrities? None. Globe Lounge is nowhere near the pages of Us Weekly or TMZ, but hey, beer is beer, whiskey is whiskey. A friendly neighborhood bar where you can pretty much wear whatever the hell you want. (But leave the cargo-shorts at home.)

817 E Karcher Rd
Nampa, ID
Hennessey's Country Bar-N - If you're looking to kick back, Hennessey's Country Bar-N, located at [Address], is a safe bet. It's not the kind of place that's going to break your wallet, so that's more you have left over for happy hour.

724 1st St S
Nampa, ID

Barb's Down The Road Tavern
(208) 442-9229
400 N Kings Rd # 34
Nampa, ID
Barb's Down The Road Tavern, located at [Address], has an atmosphere that's bordering on dive. Don't take a date there-unless she's cool as hell and is super low-maintenance-but it's a good place to chill and unwind. -Review of Barb's Down The Road Tavern

19 18 Lounge
(208) 467-3273
10 13th Ave S
Nampa, ID
19 18 Lounge - They could have easily filmed a scene from "Sex in the City" here. With its posh décor and sexy, dimly-lit interior, 19 18 Lounge makes for a killer date spot. Located at [Address], it's a little classier than the pub down the corner.

Elliott's Sports Pub & Grill
(208) 467-6811
1125 Caldwell Blvd
Nampa, ID
Elliott's Sports Pub & Grill - If you need a place to unwind after another week of mindless TPS reports, Elliott's Sports Pub & Grill, located at [Address], might just do the trick. Pretty barebones and without fanfare, but the prices are reasonable and there's no hassle at the door.
