Roger W. Wood
Founder & CEO
Roger has been a Commercial Real Estate Broker for 41+ years . . . and still is. He has no plans to retire from the business that he loves. But he had a unique opportunity to acquire a Boise City Liquor License and decided to do that as well.
After High School and 3 years in the Army, he and his brother, Verne, signed up for college at Orange Coast College and started their own retail business. They ended up with multiple stores and a couple of manufacturing plants. Roger ran the business end for 12 years before handing the reigns to Verne and embarking on his career in Commercial Real Estate. He’s been a resident of Boise since 1980.
“When I got this chance, we went to work. With the help of my wife Debbie, my two sons, Jason and Brandon (and their families) and Deb’s two sons Tom and Robbie, we started the remodel. That and the opening took a couple of months and here we are”.
“Now with the help of our awesome manager Aubrie Scoffield, we strive to provide a nice clean bar with a friendly staff and plenty of “specialty cocktails and craft beers”.
Debbie M. Andrews
Debbie is a Senior Escrow Office at Pioneer Title Company and has been in the title industry for over 30 years. When she and Roger got this opportunity, she said “let’s go for it. We got such support and encouragement from our four boys . . . . how could we not?”
Debbie is an Idaho native, growing up in Shoshone. She attended College of Southern Idaho and then worked in the San Francisco bay area before coming back to the state she loves. She attended Boise State and started her career in escrow. She and Roger have been together for 13 years.
“We love the bar because our manager Aubrie makes the place so welcoming and friendly. The crowd is always fun . . . it’s a great neighborhood bar.”
Aubrie has 17 years of hospitality experience. After climbing the corporate ladder by the age of 30 she decided to focus on her knowledge of spirits, beer and wine. Over the years Aubrie has worked directly with nationwide organizations to develop training programs as well as wine and cocktail menus. In her time at The Nook she has become familiar with many of Boise's craft breweries. American Whiskeys are her passion and are the biggest focus as the trends of today begin to turn. From creating new cocktails to putting a spin on the classics, she is always looking to do “the next big thing.” Don’t be surprised if she remembers your name and what you drink after just one visit. Her goal is to help create Boise’s best kept secret!
