If The Front Door is the neighborhood bar, Bittercreek Alehouse is The Place to be Seen and one of the best Boise nightlife spots. The only thing that outnumbers the 39 taps flowing with microbrews from Idaho, Washington, California and Oregon are the pretty people. Pretty, relaxed people. During Bittercreek’s Low-Power Happy Hour (weekdays 4-6PM), you’re more likely to see bike shoes than suits, both on the packed outdoor patio and in the cavernous, wide-open interior, where a bar takes up most of one wall. Adjacent to Red Feather, owned by the same person and run under the same “keep it local” philosophy, the food here—turkey and rhubarb chutney and corned beef Reuben sandwiches, a nice selection of burgers and salads and some entrees that are also on the Red Feather—is nearly as pretty as the patrons.
