The Yamhill Pub is a glorious shit crater. It's a hole, a mess, a fucking dive. The walls and floors and sundry surfaces are more graffiti-ed than not, and the pub certainly came by every squiggle honestly. Plastic cups do for the dirt-cheap well drinks, and the very idea of ordering any kind of cocktail seems vastly inappropriate. The only thing that clashes with the Yamhill's perfect image of a dive is the surprisingly decent collection of taps. Even in the midst of punk squalor, Portlanders still demand a decent IPA. The Yamhill Pub is amazing. It's perfect. Never go there. You'll ruin it. JOE STRECKERT
The Yamhill serves more Pabst than any other bar in Portland and that’s not an easy thing to do. One of the diveyest bars in town, it’s a popular hangout for workin’ guys, punks and bike messengers. Nice bartenders serve up some cheap drinks but don’t cross ‘em! The kitchen is apparently in a constant state of being “remodeled”, so don't expect much to eat.
Happy Hour Info: Daily 4-6pm ($1 off pitchers, $2.50 well drinks).
