  • Modern Resolutions

    January 17th, 2013 by webAdmin

    The Modern would like to thank all the Modern Resolutionists who participated in the Modern Resolutions event in December. The fire dancers, personal trainers, Radio Boise, and the Record Exchange all made this an evening to remember And I must say, Edward’s Greenhouse knocked our socks off with their bed of flowers.


    The Boise Sesqui-Shop, a shop put together to help celebrate Boise’s 150th birthday, made a fun presentation, too. If you haven’t had the chance, I suggest that you scurry down to have a peek at their shop on 10th and Main Street. http://www.facebook.com/BoiseArtsandHistory/app_100265896690345

  • Modern Hotel and Bar Events

    December 15th, 2012 by Michal

    Renew, Renovate, Resolve

    Look out, here it comes: Hanukah, Christmas, and the end of 2012, then on to a new beginning in 2013, and a chance for renewal.  To help you cope with the madness, the Modern will host several events, beginning with Modern Resolutions.

     Modern Resolutions – December 28 and 29

    On the nights of December 28 and 29, from 5:00 pm to 10:00 pm, Boise vendors and nonprofits will come together at the Modern, dedicated to creating change – and we’re not talking about nickels and dimes. Instead, organizations like Boise 150, Sustainable Futures, Bricolage, The Record Exchange, Hyde Park Books, and the Cabin Literary Center will be setting up pop-up shops in our rooms. This is your chance to grab a drink and peruse these mini-boutiques, some of which could inspire you to be a better person: more fit, more literary, or maybe – with the help of personal trainer, Renu Medispa and Graeber & Company Salon –  much hotter.

    And yes, you can do this all while balancing a beautiful cocktail created by master mixologists and bow tie-wearing bearded gentlefolk here at the Modern Hotel Bar. Giddy up!
    Modern Resolutions is our way of creating fun, even when we can’t check in guests. (Our rooms will be closed for renovations from December 27-30. We’ll reroof, build valances, paint walls, and install new carpet.)

  • Modern Bar Cocktail Naming Contest

    November 1st, 2012 by webAdmin

    At the Modern, we’re pretty good at coming up with cocktails. Naming them…not so much. So we are holding a contest. Most cocktail naming contests begin with the cocktail, ours begins with the name. We’re up for a challenge. You give us the name; we’ll craft cocktails inspired by our favorites.

    Winners will receive a $15.00 gift card and have their drinks added to the The Modern Hotel & Bar’s menu. This contest will be open until we announce the winners on our website www.themodernhotel.com/blog and our social media sites.

    How to enter:
    To enter through Facebook, comment on the contest announcement with your drink name in quotes. On Twitter, reply to our post with your drink name and the hashtag #modernhotelbar

    The Rules

    1. There is no limit to the number of names a participant can submit. We’ll choose as
    many names as we like using completely subjective criteria.

    2. Names that are impolite or political in nature will not be considered. Literal titles such
    as “The Whiskey _________” or punny names are unlikely to be chosen, but you may
    surprise us!

    3. Contestants must be 21 years of age. By submitting your entry, you authorize The
    Modern Hotel & Bar to use your drink name in all print & online publications.

  • Food, Drinks and Art!

    April 27th, 2012 by webAdmin

    3 of our favorite things combined with 3 of our favorite Food Trucks…

    Modern Art is rapidly approaching and what does a hungry art lover do when she doesn’t want to tear herself her away from the awesomeness that is Modern Art?

    Relax, this year we have your back. Or your belly.

    The Boise Fry Company, Archie’s Place and B-29 Streatery’s Food Trucks will be
    waiting to serve you delicious fare All Night Long! Stationed along Grove Street right in front of the Modern Hotel and open from 4-11p.m., now you won’t have to choose between viewing the next Artist’s creative Room and fainting from lack of Chili Cheese Fries.

    Please visit these mobile restaurant’s websites for Menu items and more information:
