It's a Friday night in the Treasure Valley, and you and your friends are ready to "crank up the juice and see what shakes loose" - what do you do?

The answer is simple: you head to the sketchiest bar in the Boise area.

What is a "sketchy bar"?

So what makes a bar "sketchy," exactly? It's not just about the dim lighting or the mysterious clientele. It's a combination of factors that give you a creepy feeling that crawls into your body.

One of the key characteristics of a sketchy bar is the atmosphere. These are the places that seem to exist outside of time and space – where anything could happen, and the rules don't quite apply. They're often loud, chaotic, and unpredictable, with an undercurrent of tension that keeps you on edge.

Some people dig this atmosphere, and why not? It keeps you on your toes and if you're going to people watch, you're most certainly in for a treat.

Sketchy bars tend to attract a certain type of crowd – the kind of people who are drawn to the danger and excitement of a place that's off the beaten path. They might be locals who know the ins and outs of the nightlife - we all know someone like this, right?

For us, it's this guy we work with named Andy. Andy knows all of the ins, outs, and crevices of the drinking underworld.

But, not even Andy could predict the Treasure Valley's pick for the "sketchiest bar."

It's not all bad either... just... "sketchy"

A sketchy bar might have a reputation for serving cheap drinks or having some bad activities going on in the surrounding area. The drinks could be strong, but the ingredients might be questionable. And the staff might be friendly, but they might also turn a blind eye to what's happening in the bar.

A sketchy bar is more than just a place to grab a drink – it's an experience. It's a place where anything can happen, and the only way to know for sure is to go and see for yourself... just make sure to bring a friend or find another way to ensure your safety.

The people of the Treasure Valley took to Reddit to share their picks for the sketchiest bars in the Treasure Valley and you won't believe who came in at number one.
