Great rooftop bar downtown in the heart of Chinatown!
Just a few block walk from the Airbnb - great patio and jukebox. Great local neighborhood bar. Gets a little bit busier on weekend nights. If you're looking for a short walk for a night cap this is your spot!

Arguably the most hipster neighborhood bar in all of Portland. Nice open front and back patios - good strong drinks and great vegan food! Just a short walk away.

This is just a quick bus ride, bike ride, or car ride away. Also could be about a 20 minute walk! Really great Brewery in a hidden spot called the "Dekum Triangle" that features a handful of restaurants, breweries and bars! The beer selection is solid and the blue cheese fries are a must!

The sister bar of Bye & Bye, this is a staple SE Portland Hipster-esque bar that serves solid cocktails and beer. Has a small patio with a fire pit out back and also features an enclosed outdoor patio seating area. Always a slight bit crowded in the evenings - this is a good bar if you're looking for a bit more of a scene while still feeling like a normal bar.

This is a great local small venue to see indie bands and artists both local and national. If you want to see some quality music in Portland this is a great spot. About a mile walk from the airbnb. They also have awesome burgers for $5 or $6. Their patio is also large and great in winter or summer (includes a fire pit) Lots of fun people watching as well on a high density street.

This is a super low-key divey hipster bar that is sorta tucked away. Beware of smoker's alley through the entrance patio, but inside is a fun, jukebox filled, small bar perfect for drinking and conversation. Did I mention it's hipster haven? Food is actually really decent!

This is an old elementary school that has been converted into a compound that contains many bars, bar areas with pool tables, games, a soaking tub, and hotel rooms as well as being a venue. This is a fun, very Portland, bar to come to both in the winter and during summer months. McMenamins are historically known for having bad service and mediocre food, but they have great tater tots and a fun ambiance. Worth checking out for an evening!

In my opinion this is Portland's best "English pub". It has a ton of awesome local beers as well as darts and other fun games. Solid fish and chips as well. It's not far from 39th and Belmont where there are other great bars and night life. Feels like you're in London at this spot! Great on cold wintery nights and warm summer evenings.

This bar is located in Montavilla neighborhood. This strip has a lot of solid neighborhood bars and restaurants. If you want a solid divey neighborhood bar with a great beer selection, pool tables, and an option to order solid sushi from the Japanese restaurant behind it - this is your spot. Again - divey, hipster, unassuming. I'd say this was more the Portland feel circa 2010.

A bit more Sceney but great cocktail bar in the Pearl District. Themed bar based off of songs by the indie band "The National". If you're looking for a night of bar hopping "downtown" Portland I'd include this one. Also next to a Portland classic bar adjacent called "Vault"

This is Portland's equivalent to Haight-Ashbury if you will. A good mix of corporate and mom & pop shops along with eateries, coffee shops and more. Great for a half day of sightseeing, people watching, and feeling like you're in a neighborhood while also part of the downtown.

East side high street with plenty of mom & pop shops, pizza joints, sushi, doughnuts, breweries, bars, one of Portland's top small music venue's (Mississippi Studios) - this is a great spot to walk to from the airbnb for an afternoon, or for an evening of eating and drinking.

Powell's Books is the largest independent bookstore in America and it's huge. A full city block and, I believe, six stories tall? Go to each uniquely colored room and peruse for hours. Great store for purchasing books and souvenirs.

This is a kitchy, eccentric mansion up in the Portland West Hills that offers a nice hour or two of great views and lush scenery of a Mansion with a lot of Portland history. Great for an afternoon. I'd couple this with going to the Rose Gardens (if in season) or a walk down NW 23rd before or after.

This is about a 30 minute drive east of Portland - quite busy and touristy but offers an amazing view and 2.0 mile hike to the top if you want a little exercise. I always get a soft serve ice-cream from the food vendor to top it off!

This is about a one hour and twenty minute drive towards the Oregon Coast. If you've never heard of Tillamook Cheese then it won't be as special, but it's still really great. They have a creamery, a tour, tons of cheese samples and curds and then you're only about another 15 minute drive from the Ocean. Make a half day out of it!

This is a compound on the cusp of Troutdale and the Gorge. Great stopping spot after seeing Multnomah falls and Crown Point (for the view). This place has mini-golf, a winery, hotel, numerous fun and unique bars. It's a great place to drink, walk about, try some wine and beer...and enjoy the country-ish edge of Troutdale.
