Great little bar on NE 28th with a laid back, "indie" vibe, wild artwork and a small-but-cheap dinner menu that includes rice & beans, pasta, and the "Creamy Wiener" (a hot dog w/cream cheese and pickles) as well as stiff cocktails.
A Portland Staple since 1958, Club 21 is under new ownership. The Club has regained all of its original charm but now has more beer, booze, and a build your own burger menu. Open at 11:30am every day with brunch on the weekends, Club 21 is a dark and comfortable bar to relax in and soak up some Portland’s history. Rotating bands, djs, and pinball add to the entertainment or just grab a pint and relax on the patio or next to the fire. Be sure to say hi to the regulars they’ve been drinking there before you were born. No but seriously. They have.
A friendly and popular bar on Upper Hawthorne that was designed to resemble the inside of a tanker ship. With many of the usual attractions of a sports bar -but a little more class. Big screens, when not showing sports, feature movies and even Project Runway. Pizza, burgers and other bar food faves are available for consumption.
Dim, friendly, authentic British pub with a large selection of beers and liquor--if you prefer, say, a gin and tonic to a Chimay. Food is basic-but-tasty limey fare like bangers and mash, fish and chips, pasties, shepherd's pie, etc. When the weather's nice, this is the perfect spot for patio cavorting, and if it's a game of darts you're looking for, this is the place.
