When news arrived in February that the plug was being pulled on short-lived Downtown Boise bar Crowbar, it was met with wide-ranging responses ranging from disappointment and bitterness to surprise and pom-pom waving.
Either way, the reality has arrived: Old Boise staple Grainey’s Basement, which preceded the underground electronic music club at 109 S. 6th St., officially relaunches this weekend. On Friday and Saturday, bargoers who never made it into Crowbar can check out the room’s updated look — and reverted music vibe.
On weekends, Grainey’s Basement now will feature “a mix of Top 40, old-school hip-hop, R&B and all-round dance party music,” according to a press release. “Select dates will have local and nationally touring live hip-hop artists and other special performances.”
