We're staying at the Deluxe Hotel (in which you will find the Driftwood Room) and met the in-laws at Driftwood our first night for drinks and a simple late dinner. We were delighted by the cocktails (I liked the Thai Gimlet so much I didn't get to try others) and really enjoyed the food. The atmosphere is cozy; the music... More

What a great find. I felt as if nobody had discovered this place yet. I was here solo on work and I could have come here every night of my stay. This was by far the best drink I had and the food is good too. The drinks are better than the food. The service was intimate and ambiance spot... More

We love the Driftwood room. Yum, get an Elizabeth Taylor! We have been going to this lttle bar for many years. It's very Portland-y for natives & visitors. It's sort of old fashioned in a really good way.

I only go here for happy hour cause its a little pricey otherwise, but I do love it. The ambiance is very sexy old hollywood, the drinks are quite tasty and the food is good too! Mac and cheese is heavy but delish. I recommend it!

The bar is pretty small, so you'll be tempted to keep the secret to yourself. By far the best service I had in Portland a bonus that it was in my own hotel. Great mix of locals and visitors keeps the conversation lively.

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
