Mess up your shag, slap on your favorite poly pants and polish your ironic sunglasses. Get ready to smoke and dance your ultra-skinny ass off in Portland's hippest dark hallway of a dance club. And, No they don't have a sign. If you can't find the place, then you're just not cool enough.
Another hip place to go on Alberta? Say it ain't so. Oh it is so so. The Bye and Bye is a large happenin' place with lots of different rooms and sick (that means cool) art. The relatively small menu is 100% vegan with some good choices ranging from the healthy (the Georgia Bowl, marinated southern-style tofu served over brown rice with a side of seasonal greens) to the indulgent (BBQ veggie chicken, black-eyed peas and seasonal greens). The great big back patio is great for cooperative weather and smoking breaks.
Serving downtown diners for over 25 years, Cassidy's is a classy joint where you're made to feel welcome whether you're sitting down to a nice meal or merely having a drink in the bar. The menu consists of meat, seafood, pasta and risotto dishes, all artfully prepared with numerous small plates available as well. Classic cocktails, atmosphere, and personality are added in for your dining pleasure, and let's not forget that the bar is a great place to pre- or post- for shows at the Crystal.
