“Great bar, great atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

Dark. The Driftwood Room is dark, trying to find a table and read the menu is a chore. But that all adds to the charm of this place. We found this place and guess what, it was Happy Hour. We bought a bottle of wine at a great price and had the Mushrooms - which was fantastic, and probably the best we every had.Say hello to Reed the bartender for us.

“Perfect place to take a date”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

The atmosphere is Hollywood chic and the lighting is great, just right for an after work rendezvous. You can order appetizers or even dinner form the five star restaurant that shares the hotel lobby.

Their mixed drink menu is very good but the wine selection is fairly limited. The staff acknowledges that they are not a wine bar.

If you need one of Portland's best rooms you only need to walk out into the lobby and you are in the best boutique hotel in Portland. The vintage Hollywood decorations make the entire experience something to remember.

“Cozy bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

Very cool, cozy, dark, romantic bar is perfect for a cocktail before heading over to Gracie's for dinner, and maybe a nightcap before returning to your room. Great staff.

“Best Manhattan in Portland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

They have a lavender manhattan called the "Goodnight Gracie", the best Manhattan I've ever had. Their Gorgonzola Cheesecake is to die for and the Croque Monsieur is one of the best. Be sure not to pass up the white cheddar fries. Mike the Bar tender is one of the nicest people you'll ever meet, get him on a slow day and he'll be happy to tell you all about his passion for making unique drinks. The atmosphere is very private and a great place for a night with a loved one. They have free 2 hour valet parking which makes things convenient. Highly recommend!

“Absolutely the best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

The Driftwood Room has the best ambiance, food, drinks and service combined for a truly fantastic time. Happy Hour is wonderful, and the bartenders never fail to impress with suggestions for the most delicious drinks that cannot be had just anywhere. The menu, which changes up quite a bit, is always impressive.
