Cheap second-run movies and a nickle arcade ($2.50 admission) all in one fabulous retro place!
Red-walled, candle-lit hipster hangout. Varied menu with cheap and better-than-average bar food makes carnivores and vegetarians happy and full. Good looking waitstaff serves up some mean cocktails too. Watch for daily specials.
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.
Stumptown's spacious Downtown location is a favorite for bike messengers and office workers alike. All of Stumptown's famous coffee drinks are available here as well as a great selection of beers and wines. Other amenities include: local art show, a kajillion magazines and some sweet treats if you're feeling peckish.
The Vegetarian House is a gold mine for vegetarians and their meat-eating friends as well. Many of the Chinese dishes are made with faux-meat alternatives ranging from "steak" to "squid". Check out the tasty daily lunch buffet for a sampling of their offerings.
Hip, happenin' warehouse space in hip, happenin' Southeast Portland. Holocene is host to both DJs and bands. With two large rooms and one long bar, it's a great place to shake your booty or bob your head.

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.
