Re: “Duff's Garage

Re: Soul Vaccination
My gosh - what a fantastic dance band! Duff's Garage was packed and the music was excellent - SOUL VACCINATION had the dance floor packed for 3 long sets.
This venue also has National acts come through like BILL KIRCHEN and MARIA MULDAUR.
Lots of seating, big dance floor, too.
I'm going back!

Re: “Bucket Brigade Cafe & Ale House

I pretty much love this place; the other reviews are outdated and don't hold true for what this bar has to offer now. The food is really high quality -- especially for a bar. Over 20 beers on tap, most of them microbrews. Fantastic service.

Re: “Bailey's Taproom

This place is wonderful. 25 taps and most of the beer is from the Pacific northwest, the rest from either California or the east coast, and occasionally Europe. The staff are all friendly and knowledgeable, too.

Re: “Bar Avignon

Stopped by this neighborhood charmer for a snack, and sat by the kitchen to watch the show. Was wildly entertained by the chef (eric?) And the soo chef (paul?) As they directed the action and prepared the food. Had a fantastic time, and the food, I'm looking at you pork chops, will bring me back again for sure!

Re: “Bartini

We started my friend's birthday celebration here the other evening during happy hour, and it was wonderful. We had to wait 20 minutes to be seated, but it was well worth the wait. The atmosphere is incredible, the ahi tuna was melt-in-your-mouth perfect, the crab cakes were delectable and all of our drinks were scrumptious. I had the Diablo, and it was the perfect mix of spicy, tangy and sweet. My friend (who likes more sweet drinks) had the Red Velvet, and it was incredible. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive, despite how busy they were. I live in SE and wish Bartini was closer, but I'll be recommending it to anyone who wants an awesome drink experience in the alphabet district.

Re: “LaurelThirst Public House

I just moved to Portland and have been going to a lot of restaurants and bars, Laurelthirst is tops on my list....this place has great food ( one of those places where you can ask for some damn simple brown rice with your meal and they have it ) and a close-in mostly free music venue. YES it is a bar. YES it is full of hippies and hipsters. YES this is Portland. YES to the music played here, it is full and varied from rocky soulful blues to acoustic wonders to something I haven't heard yet. Love this place. Rock on.

Re: “Toro Bravo

A classic. Tasty n Sons gave birth to a tapas wielding restaurant that delights at every turn. This night the delicious twists included noodles "10 con 10" with bacon & sea urchin; empanada with braised beef, kumquat & chilies; meatballs with tomato-almond sauce & english peas; and a couple octopus dishes that wrapped themselves tightly around our tastebuds. Run don't walk to Toro Bravo. Bravo!

Re: “Black Book

This place has a wonderful atmosphere. Every night feels like an exclusive party with your friends. Enough seating with plush tables and romantic side spots to chat. The DJ always has great music and the bartenders pour fantastic drinks.

Re: “Screen Door

Just may be the best fried chicken anywhere, and they definitely serve the best chicken and waffles. Off 'da charts. Highly recommended 'best in the U.S.'

Re: “Boulevard Cafe

My husband and I heard that the fish and chips here were excellent. We had not read any online reviews before visiting the restaurant. When we arrived a little after 6pm on a Sunday the restaurant was closed for a few hours of remodeling according to a note on the door, but the owner invited us in. There was a lot of extra furniture and a fridge in the main dining area, but the place looked clean, so we decided to give it a try. The wait for the food was a little on the long side, but I was actually really impressed by it when it arrived. Everything was very fresh and the portion size was good. We had clam chowder and fish-and-chips (deep-fried halibut, tartar sauce, fried sliced potatoes, brussel sprouts, risotto and a small lettuce salad) and poached salmon. The owner/chef/server was quirky yet charming. Toward the end of our meal a Winnebago drove up and dropped off a large group of bartenders who had their holiday party in the karaoke bar. It was fun, unique and authentic. We will go back again.

Re: “442

I am from the same town as owner is and let me tell you these cevapi hit the memory lane. Taste like back home! Great place to catch a game, have Bosnian coffee, and order yourself cevapi along with Nektar beer. Lucky to have 442. Thanks Mufko!

Re: “Wonder Ballroom

Re: “The Analog Cafe and Little Theater

My band Race of Strangers has played here four going on five times now we have played many of the good venues here and town that being said the Analog has given us the best sound and accommodations yet and the staff and sound guy Dave are amazing.

As a patron the menu is very good with the best mac & cheese around also the white wine sauce clams are a personal favorite.

Come check it out this Halloween night 2013 If you can we will be there.

Re: “Circa 33

This place has bomb-ass Moscow mules. The food menu is a little grease-heavy, but that's a passing fad. Try the fish and chips or the reuben.

Re: “1856

Hands down, my favorite place to grab a bottle of wine & listen to Ziggy Stardust. I've never had a bad night here.

Re: “Red's Bar and Grill

Great food and drinks. Golden Tee Golf, Darts and Pool for your entertainment. Sat and Sun Bloody Mary Bar make your own or have our bartender do it for you. Breakfast served all day everyday.

Re: “Bamboo Sushi

Absolutely the best sushi in Portland! Not only do the servers know their stuff, but they are always willing to provide you with information about the fish and about each menu item. If you don't like sushi..they also have AMAZING kobe burgers! Their shiso-serious is the best most refreshing cocktail on the menu and they promote and sell only sustainable fish. They have a great clean and green ethic and they top that off with making your palete do the happy dance!
You are definitely going to pay more here than the average spinning sushi bar that ships their fish in from god-knows-where, but you will NOT regret it!
Ask for server genevieve, her recommendations are never wrong! Make sure to tip your server their worth!
