Stylish yet minimal Finnish design-inspired decor (named after the Finnish designer/architect) compliments the noshy menu. Strong cocktails match their price, along with decent selection of wines. Bare-bones (former)smoking lounge connects the main space with a nice little patio in back.

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.
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"
This historic, restored armory building in The Pearl District is home to the Gerding Theater, the Armory Cafe and hosts other events as well.
Part lounge, part arts center, the Someday is a cool, casual, comfortable place to meet for drinks as well as a good spot to catch some performing arts action. From live music to theater, dance to spoken word. They offer some tasty specialty drinks and a nice selection of sandwiches, items that are "not sandwiches," soups, and salads. The food is all meat-free so you can park your guilt at Burger King. Also, they boast one of the longest happy hours in town!
The interior of this hip downtown bar was originally built very close to the shape of a tube, but got popular and has since expanded. It still possesses a modern design, with quality cocktails and mega hot djs many nights during the week. The menu has an excellent array of vegetarian/vegan bites.
The Goodfoot is a good old Southeast standby with a hint of a hippie vibe, separated into 2 floors—each with its own entrance. The lower-level lounge is a music venue hosting primarily hiphop, reggae, jam and world music acts. The upstairs pub is huge and has pool tables and pinball. The menu consists of gourmet burgers, sandwiches, salads and house specials, all for a completely affordable prices.
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.
You pronounce it Roh-TUR-ay.
