Our city doesn’t always make it to the top lists of the best places for singles but that doesn't mean you can't find the Boise hookups you are looking for. Does that mean we’re stuck with a bottle of Jergens every Saturday night? No, it just means we can’t be lazy. We need to know where the best bars are and what apps to use to get laid in Boise.
Whether you prefer bars or websites, it helps to know which is the most popular and which will bring the most success. Whether you’re in Ardenwood or Centerville, we’ve got a list of the hottest bars, sites, and apps for finding some great hookups in Boise.
We sent our Beyond Ages team into Boise’s social scene, we interviewed bar-hoppers and hookup app users of all adult ages. Then we checked out areas around Boise State and the Concordia University of Law.
We chose the Boise hookup bars with the most outstanding atmosphere, most interesting locals and the best choices of either food or drink or both! And then we found the hottest hookups in and around Boise and the apps that made those encounters possible.
Take a look and tell us what you think. If there’s a place you think needs to be on this list, leave us a comment below.
We’ll start with the most useful Boise hookup apps and hookup bars. Our crew gave each bar or location high marks on specific factors, which we’ve detailed below. Find out why we gave these Boise hookups a rocking thumbs up!
Keep in mind: finding ladies is easy, the hard part is getting them to want you. This requires skills that a lot of men don’t have. If you need a little help with the ladies, check out our comprehensive course on how to approach and attract women.
From Wednesday night to Sunday morning, it’s the place to be if you’re looking to dance your ass off. It’s where hump day begins as you shake off the first half of your work week and it’s our favorite place for drinking and dancing and finding hookups in Boise. Humpin Hanna’s is located at the downtown Boise strip and was voted the #1 place to cut a rug in Boise.
We, of course, loved the name. The decor screams dark-barn square dance meets college frat party at a dive bar. Bras hang from the ceiling downstairs like welcoming streamers. They have pool tables upstairs for a more chill vibe. And every once in a while, a drag queen will cross your path.
We loved the live bands too. It’s a rare place where you can watch the band and simultaneously bebop to their sweet beats or just relax with your beverage. The environment opens up opportunities to meet new people and connect through music.
We were impressed by the nightly drink specials and the eclectic mix of ages—from college undergrads to senior citizens. Whatever your flavor you'll know why Humpin' Hannah's is our pick for the best bar to get find hookups in Boise.
Adult Friend Finder has become the best hookup app in Boise, by far. Especially if you're a single guy that doesn't get a lot of love on Tinder. It used to be a pretty close race with Tinder but AFF has definitely pulled ahead lately now that Tinder is more and more focused on general dating. If you're a single guy you need to check out their free trial below.
It’s the most popular Boise hookup site and has a TON of users. Compared to the competition the numbers are way better. Every year we put together our list of top hookup apps and AFF has been at the top for the past few years. When you have this many people on an app and a pure focus on helping people hook up you're going to make a lot of connections.
So many hookups start online today that you absolutely need to be on at least one app. Otherwise, you're missing out on at least half of the options available to you.
Suit up, grab a drink and talk to some hot towners, this is how your nights should look like (if you want to get laid in Boise of course). For that, we grouped up some of the best pickup bars in Boise in just one list... Here it is...
Did you know Chandlers steakhouse was voted the 6th most romantic restaurant in the nation? When you're picking a place to go looking for hookups you can't go wrong with good food and strong drinks. It will wine and dine you with a stylishly designed menu, an updated and elegant interior, and live jazz.
We chose Chandlers for the live jazz. It’s an audibly-pleasing venue where you can watch bands improv jazz licks. It’s got a cozy atmosphere and you can definitely meet a lot of singles. Come for dinner or slide yourself onto a barstool, order a cocktail and enjoy the music.
Check out their Social Hour from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., their exquisite dinner menu, and their schedule of performances. You’ll likely need reservations if you’re coming for more than the bar, so check out their website for more information.
There’s something fun about the generic white wall and black letters of the front entrance. It’s as though the owners and Neurolux know that the quality of their bar/music venue is so good that an extravagant entrance is unnecessary.
Simply put, this is the perfect place to be with and meet people whose music interests match your own. From the crowd to the bar, the resounding feel throughout the place is “chill.”
Happy Hour is from noon to 8 p.m. and they’ve got the best prices we’ve seen for drinks. They also host musical performances regularly.
Spacebar hosts old-school Bally pinball and arcade games. Oh yeah, and booze! Their pinball games include Star Trek and Future Spa, and their classic arcade games are Pac-Man and Mortal Kombat.
We loved this Barcade because it had a vibrant crowd--especially on trivia night. So beef up on your useless knowledge, cause winning - no matter how trivial - seduces girls, and they know you're going there to get laid (and why don't you?).
Side note: Happy Hour runs every day from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., and they host weekly events that always draw in lots of Boise locals looking for quick hookups.
There aren't so many nightclubs in Boise, so it can be tricky finding a proper one, especially for outsiders. But since we're not, we made you this list of some Boise clubs where you get to meet some hot locals.
Voted as the best nightclub in town, the Balcony is a hot spot for finding hookups in Boise. The place was recently decorated so it still looks stylish and trendy to some of the hottest women in Idaho.
The Balcony also has a huge, and very busy dance floor so get ready for some physical escalation on the stage.
Their mojo is “Laugh till you snort,” and they don’t lie. Everyone we know said they had the same experience at Recycled Minds. The place is good for dates and finding beautiful women, especially Saturday nights.
Also if you plan on becoming a local, then you might consider taking one of their improv classes. Not only will you get the opportunity to hook up with many women – think yoga classes, but funnier – but you will also improve your verbal game.
Their outdated website says nothing about this badass beer bar where you can come to pick up a growler (or more) or have some hops at the bar. But our experience says this place is a real babe magnet and a hub for anyone looking for quick Boise hookups....and the food is good too.
Also, we enjoyed the extremely knowledgeable bartenders and their ability to sling outstanding brews depending upon our tastes in hops. Of course, we also loved how this place always has lots of singles.
Check out their website to see what’s currently on tap, but for hours and updated news and information, check out their social media.
If you're looking for places to enjoy some happy hour drinks while meeting as many singles as possible, then we've got you covered...
The name says “Awakening” so it’s perfect for the typical day gamer. Grab a cup of coffee, your laptop (maybe), and sit comfortably while trying to keep eye contact with as many girls as possible.
Once you find your target, smile, and take no more than 10 seconds to walk over and say hi. If you feel the anxiety, embrace it and don’t fight it. Most men don’t get approached that often so you’re chance of getting her number isn’t as slim as you think.
It’s a sexy, swanky bar and lounge that hosts a main bar, an outdoor patio, and a cellar. They host a full menu--all-American food with a modern twist, beers and slightly redesigned American cocktails.
However, that wasn't really what grabbed our attention. What did we consider the best about this whirling cocktail lounge is that it's always bustling with the murmur of lovers and friends in a very warm and welcoming environment.
During low-power hours from 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., they lower the lights and bring out candles to reduce their carbon footprint. The drinks were artisanal, tasty, and expensive, but you’re also paying for that ambiance.
It’s the only community-owned co-op in the county, owned by the members who shop here. It’s not just a grocery store--you can also fill up at the hot bar or the juice bar.
What we also noticed is the huge amount of girls at the place - mostly singles. If you only talk to five of them you'll get at least one phone number (even if your game mere average). Just try to dress one step above everyone else (semi-casual works best), and you'll definitely leave a good impression.
I'm a cold approach advocate but I can't deny how technology made getting laid so easy. These days, you just need a Tinder profile, a few good photos, an ok bio, and voila.... girls from different backgrounds messaging you.
I'm 5'9', I'm fit - but not puffed up - yet the women I meet on Tinder are 10x what all my ancestors have met combined (unless we're Genghis Khan-related). You just need to not mess things up and stay cool when a hot lady swipes on you. Also, another trick experienced guys do is to get a boost during midweek (not the weekends) and between 7 and 10 pm. That's usually when singles are home in their pajamas watching You on Netflix and wondering when they're gonna meet Mr. charm-ass.
You’re not into the hookup bars. You’ve been there, done that and you want to meet someone rad for the night (or maybe longer).
Tinder is one of our favorite Boise hookup apps and it’s also the most popular hookup app in the world. It’s where both out-of-towners and locals swipe through face after face, hoping for a one night stand (sometimes more).
Just keep in mind that if you know your personality, looks and body won’t rank in the top 10% or 15% of dudes, then you might want to try Adult Friend Finder instead. Tinder is mainly occupied by college students, college grads or young professionals.
If you’re not smoking hot or you know you don’t have a rad personality, Tinder probably isn't the best app where you can get laid in Boise. In the end, you’ll waste your time and her time. Most of the hot chicks are only on Tinder for an ego boost.
