Local After Work Recommendations – West End Portland
At CENTRL, we believe 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 an authentic sense of camaraderie and community within your team. And what better way to get to know your coworkers than grabbing a bite or drink after work?
Fortunately, there are many fantastic hotspots near our West End location where you and your coworkers 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 in the West End we think you’ll like and hope you’ll support.
Multnomah Whiskey Library
1124 SW Alder St, Portland, OR 97205
A Portland classic, Multnomah Whiskey Library is a cozy Rose City hideaway where skilled bartenders prepare Old Fashioneds and Vieux Carrés tableside atop mid-century bar carts while others climb brass library ladders to take stock of the 1,800+ bottles lining the rustic brick back wall. And if you can’t help but overindulge, don’t worry, they also offer a full dinner menu. Their Pacific NW oysters are excellent!
Swine Restaurant, Moonshine & Whisky Bar
808 SW Taylor St, Portland, OR 97205
Swine Moonshine and Whiskey Bar claims to explore the history of the American whiskey tradition, and we can’t disagree. They feature an extensive whiskey list, and specialty cocktails crafted with house-made infusions and syrups. The sangria is also fantastic. Give the fried chicken sliders a try – the sauce has a bite to it and the house pickles are delicious.
1205 SW Washington St, Portland, OR 97205
Love beer? Beer O’Clock has an impressive variety of beers on tap from all over the US, and different size pours so you can sample anything that catches your eye. The staff is super knowledgeable and the ambience is relaxed — perfect for after work. While they don’t serve food, you can order from Lardo and Grassa – both have very tasty menus.
