Knitting Factory Boise
Drove here for the Minus the Bear concert in 2017 and it's one of my favorite venues. Reminds me a lot of the 9:30 Club in D.C. except a lot cleaner. There's the GA standing area, a raised area with tables you can reserve for ordering food and drinks, the bar right behind that, and a really neat upstairs catwalk-style sitting area with open(?) tables looking down on the stage. There's another bar and a VIP area. Great view of the stage, seems like a couple to several hundred people could fit, if not more. Location is great, and is yet another awesome place in the Boise downtown scene.
I couldn't ask for a more professional staff that's so committed to their community. Patrice has been an excellent host who embodies what it means to be an active, engaged member of the Treasure Valley. Their event space is perfect for galas, balls, weddings, and all sorts of events. I'm happy to tell all my friends and clients about the Knitting Factory.
Place is legit. Every time I go I have been very impressed with the people, facility, bar and food. Great venue for concerts and private company events.
I love the sound in this venue, and the fact that you can see your favorite bands up close. I am not a fan of the pricing for beer. I think it was $6 plus tax for a cup of beer....Maybe that's away to keep the crowd slightly sober? I do love that most shows are kid friendly, but I have yet to take my kids to a show there. I love it when I can sit up in the balcony, as I get a great up close view of the bands. I do wish they could have a staff person check the bathrooms throughout some of the longer shows, as the run out of toilet paper, towels, and are generally dirty, however that is probably no different than most concert venues. The ticket checkers and security people have also always been nice to me, but I am not a rowdy show goer. If you have the opportunity to see your favorite band here, I highly recommend it.
This is a great location with security being top notch!!! I feel safe that no one is going to be drunk with a gun inside here so yes security is top notch. I would definitely go here and recommend anyone this place. If you think it's Boise and you don't need this kind of security then think about the incident that happened two months ago a block from this place. Enough said.
