If someone were to make a Broadway musical about the Open Road and America, that Broadway musical would look a lot like Kelly's Olympian. The neon, the road signs, the decorative motorcycles all scream "theme bar," but Kelly's Olympian manages to avoid the inauthenticity the décor would imply. One of the oldest eateries in Portland (it opened in 1902), Kelly's has the gravitas of a place that's been around for over a century. The food is... well... bar food, but the drinks are on the deep side, the tap list is long, and much of the clientele could probably tell you a thing or two about motorcycles. It's not quite a grim and gritty biker bar—but it's not faking anything, either. JOE STRECKERT

Restaurant Details

In operation for over a century now, Kelly's is a true Portland icon. With hanging vintage motorcycles and myriad colorful neon signs, it's a favorite of bikers (ample motorcycle parking out front), students, and office workers alike. The kitchen dishes up some remarkable bar food including all-day breakfast and ive music at the Knife Shop next door ranges from DJs to local bands
