The stiffest drinks in town, an eight-hour long happy hour (noon until 8PM), an eclectic jukebox, an overly-friendly staff, just the right amount of light—enough to recognize people and shapes, not enough to see how filthy the floor really is—and a red pool table make Neurolux one of the best Boise clubs. What more could you want? And you can smoke inside (which can be good or bad depending on your point of view). Weekends usually mean live music. Locals complain about the cover charges for these shows—usually between $3 and $10—but anyone visiting from a city on the coast will laugh, especially once they realize the music is actually pretty good, even if they’ve never heard of the band (Frontier Ruckus, Lord of the Falconry, Jucifer). Bands you will have heard of play here too: Cracker, Josh Ritter.
