Nestled in the Hotel deLuxe, the Driftwood is small and barely lit, but with a mid-century charm that brings to mind cigarette cases and pocket squares (this being Portland though, there will always be some oaf in a Ducks shirt). If you're playing at being this type of grownup, you should have cocktails, and Driftwood specializes in champagne varieties, while also doing a nice line of Manhattans. Or you may want to try one of the spirit samplers with local gins or whiskeys ($14). If you need sustenance, a shared pan of the forest mushrooms is a must. And with a happy hour that only pauses between 6:30-9:30 pm, you can live the high life on a budget. MJ SKEGG
