Their happy hour wasn't that great of a bargain but the cocktails were good and the ambiance was relaxing. It had a very swanky 1950s vibe. What a great hotel bar!

This bar is located inside the Hotel de Luxe which is decorated in old Hollywood luxury but the Driftwood has an equally unique decor of dark and sultry with the driftwood as art. The bar has very low light and intimate seating for sexy hushed liaisons. The bartenders know their stuff- a must in this craft cocktail town. We enjoyed... More

Small bars have a unique charm. People are often apt to chat to strangers and share fun stories in this one. This bar has a capacity of probably less than 30 people, with small table seating and at the bar. The bartenders are classic Portland experts with a wide selection of spirits. They have a small bar menu if you... More

Stopped in driftwood for a drink before dinner. The ambiance was very nice and the service was great. The room is very small and quaint, it is a great place to have a drink on a date. I had the springtime in Paris (my new favorite drink) and my husband had a Manhattan. Both drinks were very good, I will... More

Dropped in for happy hour before going to crystal ballroom. Drinks - nice $5 Pilsner and Pinot Grigio. Very attentive service. The food. We had charcuterie plate and salmon. Both good. Waiter brought extra bread for charcuterie on request. Atmosphere was great for a quiet drink. Dark. Small tables. Unique decor. It was mid-week so there was plenty of space.... More

This restaurant was in our hotel (de Luxe) and we came here for a late night dinner and enjoyed it. It is open 9:30 to close for Happy Hour, which is great. I ordered a champagne drink (Springtime in Paris) and steamers with clams. I enjoyed both. My niece got a roasted cauliflower and my sister ordered a flatbread. Her... More

I love this happy hour... it's one of my favorites in all of Portland. Every time I get the exact same thing because it is sooo good that I can't even try anything else :) I always get the mac and cheese and the cactus flower tequila cocktail and both are amazing. The service is always professional and fun. The... More

Small space, but intimate. It was a little loud and crammed, as there was a wedding at the hotel...the wedding guests really jammed up the lobby area and it was REALLY loud. We had gone for happy hour the past two nights (late night HH) and it was fine.

This bar really complements the Hotel Deluxe within which it sits. Great place to start and end an evening out.
