Along with the Palms motel across the street, the Alibi is a rare hold out of the 1950s Polynesian craze. The interior is done up in awesome (if slightly aged) tropical decor including giant Tiki statues, fish-shaped light fixtures and a 3-D hula girl mural. The high-camp decor is complimented by an over-the-top tropical bar menu the food however mostly lies in the plain 'ol bar food realm. If, thatch, neon, tiki torches and Mai Tais aren't enough for you, the Alibi also boasts some of the rowdiest karaoke crews in town, which can be experienced nightly.
Giant portions and copious amounts of beer and booze set this diner apart from others. The staff is friendly and the food is cheap, and you can smoke in the bar, too.
This is a good old standby bar for North Portland residents. Homey and comfortable and with the exception of the new patio relatively unchanged in decades. Cheap drinks and the usual bar fare keep the patrons happy (or at least less grumbly).
And even better, now you can find Smoky Mountain BBQ
inside the club! Featuring: pulled pork, brisket, meatloaf, ribs, catfish and a slew of sides (some are even vegan if you're into that sort of thing).
