This divey downtown hot spot is great for post-drinking grease intake. Watch punks, drag queens, tourists and businessmen chow down breakfast, lunch, and dinner. All items are offered 24 hours a day... not a common trait in Portland, so enjoy it when you can.
Coffee, teas, beers, sweet things, small plates of nibbles, and hookahs on the large garden patio are all part of the attraction to this Victorian house turned hippie-ish coffee/tea shop.
Formerly indie destination acme, Plan B has a decidedly more heavy metal vibe (at least as far as the staff goes) The space is wood paneled with some booths, a nice stage/dance floor area and a large bar dominates. In warmer months, large widow panels open onto one of the biggest patios on town. The menu consists of more-or-less fancified bar food.
Cool upper floor dance club/music venue with a Middle Eastern/Persian vibe. The dance floor is large, the drinks are generously poured and there are some nice couches to rest on when your feet get tired. Lots of good shows and regular party nights including the long-running "Shut up and Dance"
Soaring, vaulted ceilings will greet the drinker/diner at the Raleigh Hills Pub. Variations of classic McMenamin's chow as well as their signature microbrews await.
Le Happy is delicious in every way. The place is lively and intimate without feeling crowded. Choose from a large list of crêpes both savory and sweet or create your own from myriad ingredients. Cocktails, beer, wine, ciders, fresh-squeezed juice coffee and tea are also available to quench your thirst.
