    Gayle and I stopped by on the recommendation of a friend and we weren't disappointed. Since it was a relatively cold, damp, and overcast day, we both opted for the dark hot chocolate. It was really yummy and it was a perfect choice. The next time I'm here, I'll explore the intricacies of drinking chocolate and maybe some of the ...

    Bailey's Taproom

    8 reviews

    Bailey's has a wide variety of beers. It's a popular place to go to if you're a beer connoisseur. The vibe is filled with ambiance but on Fridays and on the weekends, it can get crowded and noisy. Santeria is across the street and sells tacos and burritos, so if you want beer and burritos, you can sit at Bailey's ...

    Teardrop, you're so amazing, I just wanna cry. The cocktails here are INSANE! Rickey is such a master mixologist. It's riveting just watching him make a drink. Their happy hour specials are no joke. No weak ass drinks here, you will get at least 3 shots of alcohol in your glass and be buzzing after spending just $5. Their gin ...

    Portlanders are truly spoiled with all of your happy hour spots - and the fact that they happen daily kills me! After having some stiff cocktails around the corner at Teardrop, we decided to continue happy houring here. Vault is a swank martini bar in the Pearl that I would imagine hanging out frequently with my gal pals or fab ...

    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 ...

    I'm not a big fan of Whole Foods for numerous reasons I won't get into here, but I do want you to all know that you can get 2 hours of free parking in the underground parking lot here with any whole foods purchase! So worth it, especially if you're going to Powell's Books which only has a tiny--and frighteningly ...

    You want to experience a part of Portland which shows that an obscure subculture can become a successful business that sustains itself through the years? More than "putting a bird on it", the owner Chloe has made a stamp (her previous business in NW) on the city by taking zines from the past to the future. Just a block away ...

    Wandering around Portland's Pearl District, It was awesome to stumble across an actual bricks-and-mortar retail outlet of my favorite New Zealand wool clothing brand. Sure, it's not cheap. But it's sustainable manufactured and with some care, one of these wool sweaters, jackets or pullover tops should last you 10 years.

And it doesn't hurt that this location is located near Portland's Living Room (Pioneer Square). Size does matter at this Rich's, and you'll find a huge selection of cigars, pipes, and ...

    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.

    With a location on Burnside smack dab in the center of the city right across the street from Powell's Books this place gets in the best of the best of Portland's second-hand items! Great selection! And they seemed to be getting in new stuff all the time! I got some great shoes, which is not easy to do second hand. ...

    Wildest barbershop/hair salon I've ever seen! But then again this is Portland so I'm learning to expect the unexpected. We walked in and the place had murals on the walls and each station was decorated to the unique feel of each individual stylist. They said they could do the cut right away and offered each of us a complimentary cold ...

    Loved this store from the moment I walked in and saw some of my favorites (tartine cookbook, catbird jewelry, aesop creams). I'd been looking to get a reclaimed apothecary match box bottle on for sometime, but low and behold they had it right here in this store!! Even better since I originally planned to buy it on etsy, but now ...

    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 ...
