The flip side to Portland's bustling and much-lauded microbrewery scene, Portland’s dive bars are cheap, kitschy, a little rough around the edges, full of character, and just as beloved by locals.
This neighborhood dive's the real deal. Offering many diff cheap beers to wash down those XXL servings of fried chicken and jo-jo's.
This former saloon has over a century under its belt. Vintage motorcycle-themed decor, better-than-avg bar food, live music most nights.
Appealing to young’uns and old timers alike, this is one ace-high dive. Cheap libations along w/ veg-friendly bar food. Pool, shuffleboard, darts.
One of the best dive bars in the city if not the country. Loose morals, stiff drinks, free shuffleboard, and breakfast all day. Since 1923.
This far-out joint doesn't serve pan-galactic gargle blasters but it does have microbrews, pub grub, darts, pool, funky decor, and a popular open mic night.
A quiet, friendly dive w/a basement rec room vibe. Live music & DJ nights. Plus Ethiopian food! And pickle shots! What more could you want?
Strong drinks, friendly bartenders, unpretentious atmosphere, a well-stocked jukebox, pinball machines, $1 tall boys during Happy Hour, and apparently food of some sort. In other words, it’s the perfect dive bar.
This awesomely grungy hipster dive is as rock&roll as it gets. Upstairs + downstairs bars, live music, DJs, cheap drinks. Menu is half vegan.
