After a morning of hiking, we went to The Driftwood Room, based on reviews. I had The Spring in Paris champagne drink, it was refreshing. I had the local lamb "burger," I would actually call it a slider, rather than a burger. Husband had the kraut dog, we shared the truffle fries, the food was... read more

Loved the cozy, quiet atmosphere of the Driftwood and that you can order a variety of food, some of it very unique to a bar such as grilled cauliflower which was excellent. Impecible service.

Great ambiance. Bar is in the Hotel deLuxe and has a great old Hollywood feel. It's small and tends to get busy, but well worth the visit. If bar fills up, the hotel serves drinks and apps in the pretty lobby.

I was in Portland on a business trip and stayed at the Deluxe Hotel - which is where the Driftwood Room is located. My co-workers and I were in the bar area most nights to hang out after long days with meetings. I ordered the Bread Pudding and it was fabulous! Lots of flavors, great texture- please try this dessert.... More

I love the vibe of the hotel deluxe and their main restaurant Gracies. I don't know why I always forget about the equally fab driftwood room. Supercool old Hollywood vibe. Their food menu is yummy - gorgonzola cheesecake being the standout foe me, but really, you cant go wrong. They have an extensive drink menu. The black and blue is... More

Terric restoration of the bar that was housed in the Mallory Hotel. Now the hotel name has changed to the Deluxe but the restoration of the Driftwood is the same as the good old days. Great Vesper martinis and happy hour burgers,etc. Quiet place for business or a date with your sweetie.

Simply the best! Be forwarned, however, Happy Hour drink specials are solely for champagne cocktails, even well liquor (which is happily mid-shelf) comes at full price. Great selection of Happy Hour eats. In the old days, they gave away free popcorn and it was a great place for a scotch. Super awesome for date night and hanging out with old... More

Great atmosphere! Classic and stylish retro bar scene, yet still very chic. Love it! Exceptional Bloody Mary!

Dean Martin could have designed this great hotel bar off the lobby of the magnificent Hotel Deluxe. Just right for a romantic rondezvous or to celebrate a milestone. We love this place. Husband loves the soups and chowders but I love the cheese and charcuterie. The lobby lounge with its vintage Hollywood look serves same menu. Must go!
