The basement of the Rialto Poolroom hides one of the best little event spaces in Portland. The Jack London Bar is a colorful, cozy space that hosts a plethora of happenings. Wildly varying events like history lectures (where I'm often a contributor), comedy, and Comics Underground (co-curated by the Merc's own Erik Henriksen and Alison Hallett) transpire beneath the Rialto. One night someone might talk about early vegetarians, and on another, some dude might lecture about bees. One quibble: The Jack London only has two taps. The spirits are as good as ever, but if you want beer options you'll have to settle for bottles. JOE STRECKERT
