Portland Snacks & Drinks

I'm flying into Portland next Friday night. We'd like to go someplace for some wine and snacks around 10pm. Not looking for anyplace clubbish. Any recommendations?

  1. Can you define "clubbish"? That's a new word for me.
    We have many excellent wine bars: Pour, Noble Rot, Metrovino, Bar Avignon for example.
    Edit: Add Navarre to your list.

      Ha! Sorry - my definition of clubbish is young, singles dance place, meet market, etc. Thanks for the suggestions!

        All of those mentioned above fit your criteria. The bar at Higgins has more of a pub feel, but has excellent food and a great wine list.

        Even Saucebox, which is right near some of the downtown hotels, and used to be a nightclub, isn't all that 'club-ish'.

        If you are staying at one of the Riverfront hotels, you might check out Thirst. I haven't been there, but people say good things.
