Davis Street Tavern

Davis Street Tavern

Where Old Town goes to get classy. Outside Davis Street's enormous old windows, MAX trains rumble and assorted muttering neighborhood denizens shuffle by, but inside it's classic Portland upscale—bring your wallet and be prepared to use it. The bartender calls Davis Street "a destination spot," and it's true the place can get packed out on weekends. Your best bet is to find a slow night early in the week, when your party can get the spacious bar top largely to itself, sample some of the excellent house cocktails (the "Natural Progression" is great, if you like Fernet Branca) and enjoy the dim quietude. Careful, though: If it's too quiet Davis Street won't hesitate to close up shop early. DIRK VANDERHART
