UPDATE: October 13, 2018, 6 p.m.

In the wake of a pre-dawn fire which did significant damage to the BrickYard Steakhouse and some water damage to the next-door Amsterdam Lounge on the 600 block of Main Street, the owner of The Amsterdam took to social media late Saturday to let customers know that his popular downtown Boise nightspot was indeed open.

"Come drink," said owner Ted Challenger. "Grab your friends and come drink at my bar, The Amsterdam, tonight. That would be a big help."

The BrickYard was expected to reopen for business on Monday, Oct. 15.

Boise Fire officials say a warming unit left on overnight sparked a blaze that damaged The BrickYard Steakhouse and Amsterdam Lounge in Downtown Boise early Saturday morning. Fire crews were summoned to the 600 block of Main Street just before 6 a.m., to find that smoke had already activated sprinklers in the kitchen.

Investigators said the fire started in a plate warmer unit built into a wall between 601 and 609 Main. The warmer had been left on and wood plates within the warmer ignited and extended up the wall. The BrickYard suffered most of the fire, smoke and water damage with some damage also reported at the Amsterdam.
