If the looming lofts and logjam of SUVs make you wonder why you ever pulled up stakes and moved to Portland in the first place, a bar like The Know exists to remind you. The Know is the epitome of a "classic" Portland bar, no frills, cold beer in a can (or a bottle if you're splurging), some pinball, and a bathroom that would scare even the bravest of patrons. It's not the place to enjoy a nice mojito or take your folks when they are visiting, but it's loose-knit charm and friendly faces are exactly what makes neighborhood bars so essential to living in this city. They don't actually serve much food but you are encouraged to get a sandwich from Vepadoes around the corner.
