The dishes, made in a wood fired grill are truly spectacular, the meats are rich in flavor and provide a feast for the palate. The ambiance is very chic with exposed brick walls to add a hint of rustic charm to the elegance of this place.

True to its name, this cocktail bar manages to slip a little bit of rum into pretty much every concoction, and the result is quite fantastic. The Rum Club exudes a warm, cozy vibe, and the dark interior is just perfect for relaxing with an expertly crafted cocktail in hand. The Rum Club Daiquiri, Rum Club Old Fashioned and The Fino Countdown are just three of the many excellent rum cocktails. If you want a cocktail sans rum, you could opt for the many beer, wine and cider varieties available here as well.
The Rookery Bar draws inspiration from its surroundings. Set in the old Ladd Carriage House, the bar is fashioned after an traditional English inn, with wooden and leather furniture and a warm fireplace, heating the room. The drinks and food are also influenced by this theme, yielding to the overall old-time ambiance of the place. On Tuesday and Wednesday nights, guests are treated to lovely folk music from local bands. Enjoy the warmth of the fire with a glass of one of their ingenious cocktails, while admiring the acoustics and the architecture of this iconic building.
When Portland's beloved Thatch Tiki Bar closed its doors in May 2012, it paved the way for the next popular venture, Hale Pele. This establishment stayed in theme with the former one and began welcoming guests into its tropical ambiance a few months later. Hale Pele serves an array of tropical concoctions, ranging from strong drinks like Fog Cutter, Three Dots and a Dash and Zombie Punch to mild ones like Leilani Volcano and Missionary's Downfall. The house special Sailor's Grog, which will blow your mind away, is a must try.
Acclaimed bartender, Kyle Linden Webster, of St. Jack fame, and Naomi Pomeroy, celebrity chef and owner of Beast, have joined forces to create a casual lounge where guests can have a good time. Their collaboration resulted in the establishment of Expatriate, which opened its doors in mid-2013. Webster's creative concoctions deliciously complement the food prepared by Pomeroy. The place has been beautifully designed by Matthew Peterson; dim lighting surrounds the elegant furnishing, creating an ideal dining ambiance.
