Great environment. I felt the vocals through sound system were not as clear I would have liked.
It was a pretty chill place and the staff was super friendly.
Nice intimate setting to see a show
It's all.about the band. Wait, no, drinks at 450 make it about the bar too and the bartender
Great space to listen to music!
Cool, small venue for concerts. They gets lots of indie music touring through Boise.
New favorite venue for shows in Boise. A Millennial Milieu. Lined with windows to view art on the neighboring building walls that beget unique character. The lighting throughout provides a warm aura. Clean and comfortable seating. More...
Great sound; lots of room. Easy to get a drink
Great room for music. Lots of dancing space and seating space as well
I love music and like to go to concerts. We went to the Olympic to see Tinsley Ellis. Fantastic show and the staff was great. This so much better than that other place. The sound was good and the seating was good. I will come back. More...
Great shows happen here! . Tonight I open up for the rapper All mighty suspect! On tour! Portland Oregon Next!
Awesome intimate shows and strong drinks.... Me likey
Reminds a little bit of the Crystal Ballroom in Portland. Intimate setting and everyone in a good mood. Cant wait to see Old Crow Medicine show there next month. Cheers!!

Great place for music.
Fun place to play music. House crew is awesome. Food took a while, but was good.
Nice layout, saw a great show here. Location is super, right in the middle of downtown.
My favorite downtown venue by far. Great sound no matter where you stand. Great service. Cool vibe.
This is a great place!
Small, but great venue. Great place to see bands that you might not otherwise see in Boise.
Intimate show setting, and fantastic staff. There’s tables and dance space in front of the stage, so whether you want to sit back and enjoy the sound or get up in the action you’ve got options!
Truly one of my favorite concert venues in Boise.
Nice bar & staff. Unique place.
Great place, excellent drinks and awesome bar tenders.
One of the best venues in Boise with friendly bar tenders. Josh is amazing at sound!
Saw Ok a Sweet, a great local band. Fun and friendly place to take in a concert!
Great place to see a show. Sound quality keeps getting better. Lots of diverse bands. Plenty of seating if you feel like you need to sit down.
Loved this place to see a live band.
Awesome venue, I honestly didn't know it existed until this last year. I had been passes it multiple times since I've lived here but never noticed it was there. They have a great layout and you can alternate to Mulligan's downstairs if you need a break from the venue. Nice staff More...
Great venue for small intimate concerts. Sooo fun!
Great upstairs venue love this place and the bands they book - will definitely be back!!!!
Very good venue to see a live show at great room to stand at the front and also very good sitting areas and Bar but it does not let anyone under the age of 21 in or even put x's on the back of their hands like some other venues do so be sure you are of age!!
This venue has a ton of potential. It is clean, acoustics are great, and the layout is well thought for the most part. We went to a show this evening and there were a few events that could have been avioded. The first problem was where the ticket station was located. The venue had a station located at the top of the stairs, which is actually front and center of the venue. If management moved the ticket station to the bottom of the stairs, a lot of unnecessary distractions could be avoided. The other problem was crowd control. There was a young woman that passed out in the restroom before the show. Her boyfriend was posted outside of the restroom and was yelling, with vulgar language, for her to get out of the restroom. This couple was told if they were planning on staying they would need to act appropriately. Ok, cool. But they continued to cause problems and ruin other's experience. The couple was finally asked to leave and which refused. At one point the woman left and the man was once again yelling at her and the singer on stage actually asked if everything was going to be ok. They went down stairs, but returned a few times. "Security" was doing the best he could, because he was checking tickets, managing the crowd, and making sure that the bartenders were ok. This venue could be great, but if concert goers are going to feel comfortable and safe, without a security check, there needs to be one person checking tickets at the bottom of the stairs and atleast one person working security or "crowd control" upstairs. Once again this venue is amazing. The service was great. We hope to see another show here, but we hope some of these distractions are taken care of. More...
Great venue to see a band. Cozy atmosphere and the sound is good.

I played the Olympic last month for the first time and have been to a few shows there since then and my experiences have been great! The sound is excellent, the atmosphere is inviting, and everyone who works there is so nice! Touring bands, you owe it to yourself to stop in Boise and play at the Olympic! More...

this place just kicks ass. everything you want in life can be experienced right here. best bands, best buds, best ambiance. everything. that is all.
I went to see Big D and the Kids Table tonight. Service was prompt. Prices were decent. Facilities were clean and beautiful. Security was amazing! Those guys were respectful and reasonable. Picking people up off the floor in the pit, cleaning up spills quickly, all while seemingly having a good time. Thank you very much for a safe, yet wild Friday night. More...
Danny did an excellent job running sound for us. He knows his stuff and really cares about getting the best sound possible for the audience. Grant behind the bar was very kind and helpful as well. This is a new venue (opened in April or so), but I think they're doing the right things to gain popularity and respect. This and Neurolux may be the best venues in Boise for bands to perform. More...

We had our wedding reception at the Olympic Venue and couldn't be happier that we did! Kaci and the staff were so accommodating and followed through on everything they said they would! The space was beautiful and comfortably held 180 people. We loved being right downtown, the bartenders were awesome and everyone had a fabulous time. Thank you!!! More...
It may take a little while for people to discover, but this is going to be not only a great place for shows but "the place" to see a show. This is my second time going and it was spectacular. I can't wait until every night becomes a standing room only event. More...
What do I even need to say? Been going here for the better part of the last decade for a reason.
Edit: Mulligan's mainly, but The Olympic is sweet too.
I went to The Olympic Venue to hear music, relax and have a good time. The music was excellent, sound quality high, the room is spacious and comfortably inviting to visit and listen to the music. Room to dance on the great real wood dance floor. An inviting shuffle board table and a convenient well stocked bar. A very comfortable place that I will look forward to going to again. More...
Great sound, great staff, great venue. Thanks for being great!
I've been to the Olympic for a few events. Mostly music related. One event for Veterans. We recently launched a new software company for AlertSquad. We held our launch party here. Kaci and her team, were awesome. Beautiful venue, great atmosphere. The staff that helped with drinks, sound and security were awesome. Competitive pricing for lease space as well as the bar pricing. The same pricing they have downstairs at Mulligans is the same pricing you have upstairs at the Olympic. If you're considering a venue for your event, I'd highly recommend the Olympic. Moving forward, this will be our go to for events. We received so many compliments on our launch party and I have to admit, the Olympic and Three Girls Catering were a huge part in this. Thank you Kaci and thank you to your awesome team. More...
Wish there was another place for the stage.
Best venue in boise. Hands down.
Great venue, awesome people
Such a great venue! Love walking up the stairs to find a great space
great intimate joint for an acoustic set by your favorite artist.
Great venue for bands!!! Full bar, clean bathrooms
Great people and sick venue
Great place and Rhett Miller was fantastic!
The venue was nice. Open and well organized. Easy access bar and there is an alternative entrance for wheelchairs and other physical impairments.
Great place to go listen to music.
Great venue, great music, great bartenders.
The Olympic Venue is a really neat place for a music event. I've only ever attended concerts here, but I feel like it's uses are beyond that as well. The staff is always pretty nice and the shows are always cool and intimate.The only con to this place that I heard about from some of the guys from a band I saw is that there are people complaining of the noise from the concerts on either side of the building. Not sure what could be done about that, but it does limit the sound a little.Don't get me wrong, the punk show I went to was super loud and awesome, but I could feel a little restraint. More...
Great to get up close
Great little venue. Crowd control could be a little better. We go to venues to see the musicians and enjoy the music. Not to be trampled on by 22 year old drunks who just want to be at the front of the stage for social status. Also, maybe add a cash only beer garden? Its almost impossible to enjoy the show and get a beer. Besides the obvious, we had a good time and I'm sure we'll be back. More...
Cool bar with a fun atmosphere--had a blast playing trivia!
Great venue for music and drinks. Good setup for music.
Small and intimate, the acoustics were pretty good. A reasonably stocked bar rounds out a generally warm venue.
Great Margaritas !
Love going to sing live with Boise Rockeoke!!
So much fun!
Grieves killed it!
This is a nice, intimate and unique concert and events location in downtown Boise. They did an exceptional job remodeling the space above Mulligan's making it modern yet retaining the look of the old building. The acoustics are good directly in front of the stage but if you are sitting in the back the sound gets muddled. It features a full bar and a few micros on tap. More...
Great venue, bar staff was fast with their service. Sound quality was awesome and there is plenty of room to enjoy live music with some friends or family. Worth checking out !

Open and spacious. Old timbers and brick paint adverts from the early 1900's
Intimate venue with a bar right next to the stage and half-decent acoustics. Dark wood is everywhere, and if you want to be sneaky you can order tater-tots from the bar directly beneath the venue and snack while nodding along to your favorite song.
Unique, nicely designed space, varied bands and great ticket prices. It's terrific to have another comfortable, small music venue in downtown.
