Beech St. Parlor

Bar, Pub Grub
412 NE Beech

The people behind Tiga have transformed a big Portland foursquare into the Beech Street Parlor, splitting the difference between neighborhood hangout and upscale cocktail bar. The bar area spills out into the living room—a few tables and chairs, and a couple Victorian couches.

Beech Street makes more than adequate cocktails—I've opted for a traditional martini, though more adventurous types might try the fennel vodka variety—but the selling point might be their infusions. The ginger bourbon gussies up a standard whiskey ginger, and their flavored tequilas allow you to order a raspberry margarita without worrying that it'll be mixed with Torani syrup. Ninkasi, Double Mountain, and Stiegl anchor their tap list, but you have 10 draft beers to choose from on any given day.Beech Street makes more than adequate cocktails—I've opted for a traditional martini, though more adventurous types might try the fennel vodka variety—but the selling point might be their infusions.

Beech Street Parlor has potential to be a destination spot—it's a great after-dinner date option—but even more so, it's a nice addition to a neighborhood. TONY PEREZ
