Nothing like a bar crawl on a Tuesday down one of Portland's most libation-rich streets. Use this guide as a road map. And here's the number for Broadway Cabs: 503-333-3333.
Gone are the days of the old Alberta Street Pub, when a pint of PBR was served in a dimly lit dive over a pig picture-covered bar. Say hello to the revamped version of the pub with light bulb chandeliers, expansive patio and an airy, minimalist atmosphere--much like the rest of the quickly transforming Alberta Street.
When you want to shoot pool on one of Portland's sunny days but know you shouldn't spend the day cooped up in a bar, head to Binks. Their pool room with an open garage-style door is your solution.
Random Order is revamping the definition of "cafe" offering fresh baked pies, later hours, and fresh cocktails on top of the bold espresso. Have a next destination or you'll be here all day.
Sip on cans of PBR or Rainier shoulder to shoulder with Portland's leather-clad best while watching local metal bands hesh it out on the other side of the red velvet curtain. Happy hour 3 to 7.
Now a tapas bar, Lolo's offers one fine happy hour. Sip on the Sangria while munching on the Esclavida.
Smokers' Paradise of a back patio outside, Alleyway offers shows, a pool table, and a tasty menu served until late.
The Hilt is the latest incarnation for this building and as such it's still flying under the Alberta radar. This makes it a keen spot for quiet drinks that last late--until 2:30am.
Walk past the tatted folks drinking at noon, smile at the accommodating bar help, and beeline it for the tasty menu. The brussel sprout bowl and BBQ tofu with collard greens are personal favorites. I just got drool on my keyboard thinking about them.
