If you aren't already, definitely get acquainted with this hidden SE industrial gem's beautiful patio and happy hour s--from 4-7pm daily, you can get $5 cocktails du jour, $4 nachos, and $8 poutine.
As much a bar as a hangout, the Basement Pub is a meeting place for after work get-togethers and light dinners. The Basement wisely pairs drinking with popular pastimes such as cribbage, pinball and board games taking the awkward ice-breakers out of get-to-know-you conversations.
Everything from dance parties & art shows to Portland's Pickling Competition is hosted here in this warehouse space. The music varies from folk, dance DJ's, to electronica. Every Friday Holocene hosts an European styled "aperitivo" hour from 5-8 with complimentary bites. Also interesting to check out- the mirrors in the bathroom.
You have to sit on the patio, even when it's cold they keep it hot with heaters. Simple cocktails and a small craft beer draft list. There's also a restaurant, I've heard good things about breakfast.
