Happy Hour Macadam/South Waterfront (PDX)

Can anyone recommend a good place for happy hour off Macadam? I'd prefer to stay out of downtown. I am looking for somewhere to spend an hour or two before fighting traffic northbound. Thanks in advance!

  1. have not been, but the new resto / bar (used to be Rivers, etc...) next to the Avalon Hotel / Spa is opening: menu looks interesting, large Italian wine list. Cheers!

    1. Alissa, my office is on Macadam and there aren't a lot of GREAT food choices. However, here's what I know about in addition to the "new" Rivers (the old Rivers had pretty decent Happy Hour though):

      1. Fulton Pub (corner of Nebraska and Macadam) is a McMenamin's. Good beer, bad Happy Hour menu, but good Burgers.
      2. Macadam Bar and Grill: Better than average Sports Bar with pretty good beer (full bar) and good food.
      3. Buffalo Gap: Portland institution. Again, decent food, decent beer.
