I stayed at the Hotel De luxe and decided to have some drinks in the bar. It was packed at 6 pm so I took a walk and came back at 7:30, (post happy hour). I opened the drink menu and found that they had a Manhattan Sampler. They had a selection of Manhattans made from local and well known... More

We love the Driftwood Room -- with a twist. While the actual Driftwood Room with it's vintage bar and decor is charming, we prefer being served in the Hotel DeLuxe lobby with it's comfy chairs and sofas, slides of old film stars, and relaxing atmosphere. We have been here many times during trips to Portland. The Happy Hour menu is... More

We enjoyed the Manhattan menu (extensive and interesting!) and other drinks. Bartenders and wait staff were knowledgable and attentive. Drinks were delicious and a reasonable price. We also had the sizzling mushrooms which were decadent and flavorful. YUM!

We are blessed in many ways here in the Pacific Northwest, and this is just one shinning example. The Driftwood room has it all when it comes to a bar: excellent libations and service in a world-class atmosphere. The happy hour food is none too shabby either. If it has one drawback it is that it's on the small side... More

Wood paneled 60s style bar. Ample seating at the bar or at tables. Limited food choices but good quality and value. Nice choice of beverages.

We stumbled in via a search on my phone. It is very small but there were seats at the bar. Great atmosphere and excellent drinks and the bartender had good suggestions for other places to go after our stop there. We didn't have the bar food but the menu looked awesome and cheap.
