This place has great ambiance, wonderful cocktails and delicious food. The servers are always friendly and flexible. We always sit at the bar and enjoy the conversations. Try the Armory the next time you are in Portland ME. It is in the lower level of the Regency hotel. You will not be disappointed.

A bit loud but this bar definitely had ambiance. Nice and cozy. Excellent drinks especially the martinis. I don't think anybody would be disappointed!

Liked it all, a little pricey but when you are on vacation it is worth the extra money. Would go back there again.

The Armory Lounge is on of the most well liked lounge and restaurant ...in our many trips we meet a lot of folks that we have seen there before..Ben the Bar Manager, Tim the Valet , Margaret, Stacey and Simone round out the representatives of this Wonderful and Charning establishment...they are the core of why people keep coming back..

A must each time we are in Portland! In the evening it can fill pretty fast but if you are on vacation and want a place to chill in the afternoon, then this is the place for you! It is low lit and quiet with an old pub feel. The staff are attentive and very charming and will strike up... More

Until the crowd came, then it was a bit overwhelmingly loud. Delicious apps - they had a half price special, so even better! Fantastic drinks and good menu.

The Armory Lounge has always had a reputation in Portland for being an adult venue with the atmosphere quiet and dark with comfortable tables and chairs. We have been here several times before and the lounge has been full or empty but always has a quiet, respectable atmosphere. My husband and I visited last night and was shocked by the... More

We used to love this place for dinner w/in the Portland Regency, but on our last visit the quality of the food had definitely declined. It's definitely your average pub quality now. The bartenders are great though, and the drinks creative!

Located in the historic Regency Portland hotel, they offer various alcoholic drinks, live entertainment and light eats. It appears to be a very popular hangout with the locals and tourist alike. A very pleasant pub atmosphere convenient to downtown hotels and tourist areas.
