This retro-chic hideaway anchors its entire Happy Hour around Champagne cocktails like the Portland ‘85 (with Clear Creek pear brandy, Clear Creek pear liqueur, and Champagne), the Springtime in Paris (St Germain elderflower liqueur, rhubarb bitters, and champagne), or the Elizabeth Taylor (featuring crème de violette and Champagne).

If this weren’t Portland, the small town city where you’re almost sure to run into someone you know within 1 minute/1 mile of leaving your home, this dark and sultry little hotel bar would be the perfect place to have an affair. And it’s really easy to get a room after one too many Springtime in Paris champagne cocktails. Not that I’m encouraging your sordid antics.

Style and grace fill this dimly lit lounge. Small bites and a plethora of manhattan choices fill the menu. Sit up at the bar and chat with the best mannered bartenders in town or cozy up with your significant other the very snuggly banquet seating that borders the perimeter.

This bar isn't a bad bar but... – This bar isn't a bad bar. It just lacks a couple of things. Better music for one. This one detail failed makes me slightly annoyed. Even "cocktail" Music should be well considered and not just a steady dribble of crooner b sides. The edge between ironic and slaphappyy senile is razor thin already.

Another reason this bar completely sucs is the help. I only say HELP because they need some here at The Driftwood Room. Not that there isn't plenty of suitable candidates paired in corners mocking the payers or pestering them about the Hapless Hour menu. Maybe the management of the former Mallory Hotel should rethink the required Glengarry Glennross screenings.

Like I say this isn't a horrible bar. But I just started drinking again ( odd years ON! baby) and this dump grew fat and lazy and geriatric in my absence. I don't need singing bartenders but I need you to express that serving me is your pleasure and you will so fully prove this that it shames my wallet into apologizing for this drunken mess sitting on it; so undeserving.

Speaking of wallet you better bring a couple if you plan on even catching a buzz. Nothing Special Beer: 5$. Give me a freakin break.

And there isnt any wireless to email your buddes with.

Maybe Drift somewhere else.

EDIT:

response to the earlier response from "willyum"

So its really "cool" willYUM?

Omg im continuing to read your aging cornpone take on this dump and you used the C word again!

Lets say i dont know who sam spade is. Im guessing he's old and did i mention... dark? (see how the question was followed by a question mark?).

Wow. Maltese falcon? the detective thing you are unhinged about is starting to creep me out. I dont like the idea of you in a dark place with me or anybody else trying to investigate mythteries.

As for the music not only is the driftwood music an endless sinatra replay you can hear in any fred meyer aisle it goes perfectly well with the 3 beers they have on tap. Or is it two?

I am proud of you for is not using the word "anywho". Bit of a shocker there.

The grace of a bygone era distilled into one classy little bar. – In Short
Located in the retro Hotel DeLuxe, this clubby bar has remained relatively unchanged since the mid-20th century. Formerly the hotel's solarium, the bar is now dark and cozy--a swell choice for intimate conversation. For those who seek anonymity, it can be found among the traveling businessmen and holiday-makers who lodge at the hotel. Driftwood offers lunch, a bistro menu for dinner, and light fare until closing. Brunch and light bites are served on Sundays.

Awesome Happy Hour Menu – Supercheap highclass food on the happy hour menu. I've made this a regular stop for 'dinner' lately. I never went to the old Driftwood Room so I can't make a comparison, but I can say that the new place is a lovely little find. Very dark and mysterious in an old Vegas way, especially with it's odd kidney bean shape.

The new Driftwood Room at the renovated Mallory Hotel is a sad shadow of its former glory. Its limp-wristed, high-priced menu is over-pushed by unctuous and insincere bar staff. The drinks said staff pour are insultingly stingy for the price they charge. On the plus side, the new Driftwood Room is non-smoking. Avoid this vacuous and fabricated poseur pit.

Don't make a special trip here – We stayed at tha Mallory Hotel which was a great experience. We dropped into the bar there and it was dark and small. Nothing special, but pretty good for not leaving the hotel. You don't want to make a special trip to drink here though. The one bartender was nice though as were all of the Mallory employees.

Disagreed with Citysearch – I was excited to try this place, but when we arrived I was surprised how shabby everything was. The bar was cramped and filled with a much, much older crowd. Only two beers on tap. Very disappointed.
