Piper Pub and Grill opened in the Capitol Terrace building at 8th St. & Main St. in Downtown Boise in 1989 – offering a full bar, second floor balcony patio and pub fare.T

The Piper Pub space was listed for lease by Hawkins & Co. which purchased the Capitol Terrace building last year and plans a round of upgrades in coming months.

Owners Gene & Erin Hutchison are hoping to work something out – but so far haven’t been able to make a deal.

“We are currently in negotiations for lease renewal but it does not seem that Hawkins is all that interested in renewing our lease,” Gene said via email. “We would love to stay were we are and    continue to be a downtown staple but that is looking less and less likely at this point.”

The Hutchisons are looking at potential relocation options – but so far have not been able to find the right spot.

“The years that we have owned the Piper Pub have been great and we are set truly sad that it had  down to this,” Gene said.

The Hutchisons say they are hoping to make one last pitch to stay put.

Officials for Hawkins Co. did not return a request for comment.
