Local After Work Recommendations – Hood River Waterfront
Here at CENTRL, we know a great work environment consists of more than just the physical office where you get your work done. It’s also about taking the time to develop a sense of camaraderie and community within your team. And what better way to get to know your coworkers than going out on the town for a bite or drink after work?
Thankfully, there are plenty of after work options near our Hood River location where you and your colleagues can socialize while supporting a locally owned business. With so many choices, though, we know that deciding where to grab dinner or a drink can sometimes feel overwhelming.
With this in mind, here’s a partial list of a few after work spots we think you’ll like and hope you’ll support.
1235 State St, Hood River, OR 97031
Looking for the perfect cafe to end your day? A Hood River gem, Kickstand is a community-focused restaurant that emphasizes local Pacific Northwest ingredients. Their menu features a wide selection of delicious sandwiches, burgers, salads, and creative entrees. The service and atmosphere are great and you’ll love sitting out on their patio!
Ferment Brewing Company
403 Portway Ave, Hood River, OR 97031
You won’t need to travel far to grab a local beer or kombucha, since Ferment Brewing Company shares the same building as CENTRL. Ferment is a modern brewery and tasting room, featuring handcrafted ciders, beers and kombuchas, locally-sourced seasonal produce, hearty sandwiches, slow-roasted meats, and a wide variety of house-fermented items. We highly recommend trying the Korean BBQ burger and the falafel & ferments salad.
Hood River Common House
110 5th St, Hood River, OR 97031
A favorite spot for locals like ourselves, Common House offers the best wine selection in the city, and has an impressive rotation of beer and cider on tap, so there’s always something new to try. The atmosphere is hip and modern, with plenty of comfortable seating, both inside and out outdoors. They’re also dog friendly!
