    Had the french toast with some oj on the restaurant side. Bartender Jack was nice. French toast was killer, you don't even need the syrup! Sucks that it closes at 3 and reopens at 5. :/

    I love the atmosphere at this place. I was a little disappointed with the bagel w/lox - I was expecting a LIGHTLY smoked filet but got a fully cooked chunk of salmon.

    It is attached to a hotel and so it is open early for those jet lagged east coasters.

    Check out the little fur lined booth back behind the bar (the "squirrel womb") for a particularly cozy drinking experience.

    Cozy place to see a show or drink. Masculine outdoorsy log cabin like environment. Wear a red & black checkered shirt with a black skull cap to round out the whole lumberjack look.

    The log cabin interior of this hangout in Portland gets all the press, but don't ignore the outdoor patio—particularly the fireplace area. It's one of the friendlier places on earth for a microbrew.

    Don't ignore the outdoor patio. It's an austere little hunk of slab lined in bamboo and decked out with Adirondack chairs, making it one of the friendlier places on earth to slug a microbrew. Read more

    Doug Fir is one of the best venues to see a show in Portland, just make sure to bring a friend. Go alone and the best conversation of the night will start with "Hey, got a cigarette I can bum?"

    Not a gay bar, per se. But everyone said we had to check it out. Funky cool decor, with VEDDY strong drinks, and cute boys in sleeveless flannel. Recommended fun. Scary neighborhood, though.
