There aren't many places in Portland where a well-dressed sugar daddy can feel truly at home with his latest sweet young strumpet on his arm, but the Heathman Hotel bar is one of them. Nestled just below one of Portland's fanciest hotels—and right next to one of Portland's fanciest hotel restaurants—you can tell the Heathman's bar is high class because there's attentive, gracious service (another nearly impossible thing to find in Portland). True, getting overwhelmed by proletarian rage is a possibility, but try ducking into the bar on a weekday night. Time it right, and you'll find a subdued, amiable place to enjoy a quiet beer... even if the bartender insists on pouring it into a glass for you. ERIK HENRIKSEN
