This retro-style, wood-paneled lounge with dim, moody lighting is full of deep booths that you wont want to (and almost don't need to) get out of. Sip on a classic cocktail and munch on some decent bar food while checking out the entertainment which includes: DJs, bands and Elvis(on most Wednesdays). Or get out of your seat and dance on the spacious dance floor.
Alberta's only Irish bar, with a cozy interior and a weatherproofed back patio for those of us who indulge in the occasional cigarette. The food is savory and a godsend if you're hungry late (full menu 'til 11 pm, bar menu after). Irish beer buffs, this is your spot, with Guinness and Harp on tap. Plus live acoustic music nightly, which mostly runs in the folk, bluegrass, and (of course) Irish vein.
This Sellwood sushi star is known for cheap, gigantic sushi. It's probably not the best place for groups or quick dining as Portlanders from high and low flock to this sushi house for its good deals, and the lines to sit down are notorious. Once you do get in, order quick and only once.
This colorful, airy coffee house on Alberta brews Stumptown coffee and a few other drinkables including chai. A few baked good are available to chow on as well.

A comfortable, homey, kinda grungy throwback in a neighborhood full of boutiques and wine bars. Second-hand furniture, retro-kitsch decor, a bunch of beers on tap, make for a perfectly good place for meeting friends or throwing back a cold one before (or after) a movie at the Laurelhurst. The food is simple, decent and won't eat a hole in your wallet. Entertainment is provided by the jukebox as well as live bands and DJs.
Okay it's a bit of a dive but ambiance matters little when you need a fix of that Vietnamese noodle soup. Pho Oregon sticks mainly to Pho of which they offer a number of versions. Mint, cilantro, sprouts and lime are served on the side so you can fix it up just the way you like.
