Nightclub teased for space on Boise’s Grove Plaza: ‘feeling lucky?’


A new nightclub is poised to open on the Grove Plaza in Boise.

Lucky 7’s Night Club placed signs in an empty retail space on the plaza in the City Center Plaza building, next to the ground floor entrance for Boise Centre East. The space, owned by Seattle firm Laird Norton, has sat empty since the nine-story office building first opened nearly six years ago.

David Wali, president of Gardner Co., which manages the building, told BoiseDev the Lucky 7’s club is from the team behind Barrel House Brew Pub and Grill in Garden City. An email to Barrel House management last week was not returned.

Wali said Lucky 7’s would focus on nightlife and music.

A countdown timer on a Lucky 7’s splash page ticks down the days, hours and minutes to June 30th.

On Instagram, a variety of bright, vivid, stock-style images populate the feed, with messages like “feeling lucky? We’ll cheers to that.” and “lucky nights and neon lights.”

The large space has more than 5,000 square feet of space with patios both on the Grove Plaza as well as in a space adjacent to the US Bank building.

The Greater Boise Auditorium District, which operates the Boise Centre, had looked at purchasing or leasing the space to add to its convention center offerings, but a deal did not come to fruition.

Lucky 7’s would add a third food and drink establishment to the plaza, joining similarly-named Lucky Fins and Buffalo Wild Wings.

Correction: An earlier version of this story indicated food might be served at the nightclub. Additionally, owner Jerry Miller indicated that a building permit had been filed. City records had an alternate address on the permit. Miller said work was underway, however, the city’s status tracker says the permit is still being reviewed.
