Great pet friendly option in Portland when the Hotel Monaco rates are high. This is in an old building with charm and class. Walking distance to downtown attractions.

    Dubbed by marketers ad Portland's Living Room, and called "the Square" by everyone else. This red-brick square is popular with people who work downtown and with street kids, and it's a great place to people watch. There are often events and free concerts here on weekends in the summer, especially around Rose Festival time (early June). There is also a ...

    This is my Son's neighborhood park and at 90+ acres, it's relatively huge. It has plenty of space to walk around in it's nicely wooded expanse, and has the other stuff that folks like including a baseball field, basketball court, tennis, picnic areas, and an off-leash area for Fido.

    If you ever crave a good game of PacMan at 3AM, Ground Kontrol ahs you covered. This two-story quarter arcade is filled with flashy, loud video games and pinball machines. They also serve beer and have quiz nights aimed at gamers. There's very little room to sit, though, so come prepared to play, not to socialize.

    If you are a serious student of beer in all its forms, come here - I'm guessing that they have ~50 on tap. The kitchen is also very good and well worth coming for a meal.

    I went on Sunday evening to see their famous Sinferno performance because I had heard it was quite good. On their website if says Sinferno starts at 9PM but when we arrived they informed us that the live bands start at 9PM but the stage show didn't start until 11PM which was a bit of a bummer because the trains ...

    So you're in Downtown Portland at night and you have a hankering to see a real core Drag Show? Something that combines trashy, glam, moments of quiet beauty, and the chance to get wittily insulted by the hostess? This is true Eleganza Extravaganza. The place has a deep history after City Nightclub (RIP) and Darcelle XV (RIP, but I think ...

    This used to be the post office! Before that I assume it was an actual courthouse. Perhaps pioneers once held court there, but I kind of doubt it. Could make for a fun urban legend, though.

    Do you like jazz? Do you like tasty food and well-crafted libations? Of course you do. As a Portland institution, Jimmy Mak’s has played host to some of the best local and national jazz acts ever! If jazz isn’t your thing, you should still check this place out for its atmosphere, food and drink. Located in the heart of downtown ...

    I like city hall quite a bit. It feels like a cozy building and dosen't overwhelm you at all. It also is in a nice part of the city. I may not like the mayor though : (

    The Roseland has been around for as long as I can remember, and I've been to everything from reggae shows to raves here. A lot of fairly big acts come through here and the acoustics are excellent. It's one of the first places you'll want to check out for live music listings if you're coming to town; tickets for most ...

    Great spice store - been buying their stuff online for ages, but this is an actual walk-in store. You can see and smell all of their spices and spice blends, and buy whatever you want in varying quantities. One of the high-quality features here is that the containers you use to smell the products are NOT the source of the ...

    This place sells mostly horse stuff (bridles and tack) and a bit of fishing gear. The ground floor is dedicated to western clothes and boots, and it's a good place to go if you are into horsemanship or just like dressing up in cowboy clothes. The smaller upstairs section sells English riding tack, breeches, and accessories. It's a fun place ...

    Coffee shop, computer cafe and performance venue with tons of space! This place always seems to be buzzing. I haven't been to one of there events but during the day it appears to be a good place to work or have a meeting because the space is so large there are usually seating options even when they are busy.
