The bar is open! Kelly Johnson, who has worked for Dan Johnson for the past four and a half years, is not only opening the Nezperce Hotel Bar - otherwise known as the Clover Club - she has grand plans. Kelly would like to reopen the cafe, which has been closed for several years.
For now, however, the bar is open Wednesdays through Saturdays from 4 p.m. until the last customer leaves. Kelly plans to start serving food - a small menu of “bar food” - next month.
The cafe space is available at no cost to groups that might want a bit of privacy or need more seating.
If you have any questions or want to reserve the space, contact Kelly at 208-305-2569 or through the bar’s Facebook page.
