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 Boise hookups.
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 skill 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 Boise hookup bar for drinking and dancing. 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 bee bop 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 laid in Boise.
Adult Friend Finder has been hooking people up since 2006. It’s the hookup site for most people who haven’t had a lot of luck on other sites. Way too many apps and site focus solely on liking pictures, but AFF knows that pics can be deceiving.
We have tried out all the hookup apps and hookup sites you can think of in Boise and our team as a whole has seen the best success when using AFF. Going with the site that has the most women using it, and women who are surprisingly willing to meet up quickly, is an easy recommendation. If you are going to check out one site it should be this one.
Unlike other hookup sites, AFF doesn’t have an accompanying app. It’s a website accessible through your smartphone. According to AFF’s site, more than 90 million users log on daily for the chance at a hookup.
It’s the most popular Boise hookup site and around the world for the same reason: people of all ages are still horny. And because AFF knows how to make sure there’s an even playing field, this site always makes it to our exclusive list of top hookup apps.

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. Stack this with a list of events that include wine and beer tasting, flight nights or painting classes. The events are vast and there’s always something new happening at the OG Boise Co-op.
We loved the Boise Co-op because it was a dressed-down touch of class. We felt it was an excellent opportunity to connect with like-minded others in a mellow environment while learning more about craft beers, local vintners, artisanal cheeses and the art of painting. With events like these, you’ll definitely cross paths with lots of singles who are also looking to get laid in Boise.
Older women of Boise feel a certain castration simply for wanting to enjoy casual sex. Can you connect with that, guys? They’ve mostly steered clear of bars and migrated to hookup sites and hookup apps to avoid the judgmental eyes of others.
If you’re into older ladies and are hoping to meet one, try Cougar Life. With more than 7 million members on this hookup site, there’s a strong chance you’ll find a cougar in Boise.
Don’t mistake them as desperate, either. Women on this Boise hookup app are typically looking for equally responsible and mature men. They come to Cougar Life to find men who are worth their time.
Each year, Beyond Ages compiles a list of our favorite cougar dating sites and Cougar Life remains on top each year. That’s because no other site has as many beautiful cougars who actually respond to messages! It's the site where you can get laid in Boise if you love mature ladies.
Try Cougar Life’s free trial today. If you’ve tried dating older women but haven’t been too successful, sign up for our course on dating women older than 30. We’ll show you how to rock the cougar dating scene.
Did you know Chandlers steakhouse was voted the 6th most romantic restaurant in the nation? It made Trip Advisor’s list of America’s Most Romantic Restaurants and it’s no wonder. It will wine and dine you with a stylishly designed menu, an updated and elegant interior and live jazz. When you're picking a place to go looking for hookups you can't go wrong with good food and strong drinks.
Forget the Trip Advisor rating, 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: $2 PBR Drafts and $7 PBR Pitchers (“It’s more like Happy Day!”). They also host musical performances regularly.
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. They have 20 taps, a nice selection of local crafts, ciders, wines and root beer. If you buy a growler, bring it back for a refill! Rest your tush indoors at the bar or outdoors on the patio.
We chose PreFunk because of the overall atmosphere. There’s an organically fun crowd (as organic as a 3-beer-buzz can get), dog-friendly seating and occasionally a food truck outside if you’re feeling snackish. We enjoyed the extremely knowledgeable beertenders 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.
Now that we’ve covered some of our favorite Boise hookup sites, apps and bars, here are a few more proven places to find some hookups in our city.
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. The cellar is completely separate from the rest of the restaurant with its own restroom, AV system, and a fully stocked bar.
The Red Feather Lounge is also one of those responsible restaurants that sources locally-grown produce and livestock. They even list their vendors on their website to prove it.
So what did we consider the best about this whirling cocktail lounge and restaurant in the starry-skied paradise of Boise? It was bustling with the murmur of lovers and friends in a very warm and welcoming environment. During low-power hour 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.
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, Tron, Centipede and Mortal Kombat. In addition to electronic entertainment, they host trivia nights and have stacks of board games if the electronic games aren’t your bag. Did we mention the nightly happy hour?
We loved this Barcade because it had a vibrant crowd--especially on trivia night. So beef up on your useless knowledge, crack your knuckles and get ready to answer trivia questions like, “What kind of toilet did Jefferson Davis own?”
Happy Hour runs every day from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., and they host weekly events that always draw in lots of people.
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.
Based in Bend, Oregon, this brewery is the beer child of three guys who wanted to brew beer, drink beer and have fun doing it. Our location is possibly the oldest brewpub in Boise. When you’re here, take a gander at the wide selection of brews and ample American food menu.
Though the wait was long, 10 Barrell did not leave us disappointed. The atmosphere was fun, the beer choices were many and the staff was highly knowledgeable. We loved the space for big groups, the friendly beer-loving crowd and the conversations we had with new-found friendships.
If you enjoy a craft, either local or imported, check out 10 Barrel Brewing. Find hours, happy hours, and nightly specials on their website.
