This hotel bar feels like you are stepping back in time; it is classically retro. The Happy Hour started at 2 and it was obviously a local favorite. They feature champagne cocktails and plenty of food choices on their happy hour menu. There was great service and we enjoyed the oldies music in the background.

Great looking/feeling cocktail bar in the lobby of Hotel DeLuxe. Well-made, imaginative cocktails from a very knowledgeable and friendly staff.

Great place for after theater, a nightcap after dinner or for no reason at all. Great drinks, affable bartenders and nostalgic atmosphere, I love this place.

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

We hadbtwo bartenders both were terrific the older on is named Mike. This is THE place to go to have a classic (or any) cocktail done right. The space is small dark and cozy.
