The Cactus Bar has been a top spot in Boise since 1936! It is the oldest bar still in existence in downtown Boise.
The Cactus Bar is a low key no frills, nothing fancy, good ole fashion dive bar. We love to provide people with a fun yet relaxing environment. Whether inside the bar or on our back patio, we provide customers with a variety of entertainment; from giant jenga, our photo booth, jukebox, darts, lottery machines, and corn hole games. We love our local community and the history of Idaho. The Cactus prides itself on keeping an assortment of local idaho beers on tap. In addition to our local brews, we have anywhere from 10-12 rotating tap handles so customers always have something new to try. Busier nights at the Cactus are made up of a younger crowd looking for inexpensive but stronger spirits. Our customers love to start or end their nights at the Cactus, often coming before or after concerts, live music shows, or from dance clubs. We strive to provide our customers with classic drinks in a low-key environment that tells the story of Boise, ID.
The Cactus is at capacity on weekends, special events, and major holidays. Building another bar station will allow us to serve more customers in a more timely fashion. We are looking to renovate our bathrooms to offer customers nicer, more accessible restrooms. Boise's population is growing quickly, and as more people mover here, the downtown area is getting nicer. We are always striving to keep up with the times while sticking to our roots of the vibe and what the Cactus offers.
