Trust the bartender

Was sold from the second I walked in. Dark and cozy to the point that I expected Frank and Dino to be sitting at the bar. Sazerac, a beverage for adults.

Amazing bar with even better bartenders. This was, by far, the best part of our trip to Portland. We will be back to this bar for sure.

My first boyfriend's grandmother was tiny, Italian, and adamant, warning him: "Evil lurks in dark places!" I now beg to differ. The Driftwood Room is my favorite bar - anywhere. It's tiny and dark as night, but warm and friendly. The drinks are fresh and interesting, the wines well chosen and the little plates perfect for a light dinner. The... More

We went twice during our stay at Hotel Deluxe. Cool classic style bar. Crowded at happy hour, but a very good happy hour. Service was excellent - fast and personable. The bar food is really good and discounted during happy hour. Very reasonable prices and enough food to make it dinner. I had a peach mint muddled drink that was... More

It seemed like a cool place. The hotel is beautiful. And the atmosphere was pretty interesting. The waitress and bartender also seemed friendly. But there was zero air circulation - it was just too stuffy. We started to get sleepy before the first round was done.

This bar was so dark and closed in it was uncomfortable. The drinks were interesting, I had a flight of old fashions that were good, but could have been bigger. But it's hard to get passed the closed in feeling so after one drink we left for more open spaces

I recently went to the Driftwood Room last Friday prior to seeing a Thorns game because it was very close to the stadium and had great reviews for happy hour. The place is a bit small and you may have trouble finding a seat if you go during their daily happy hour (2pm - 6:30 daily). They are more than... More
