Portland Nightlife: 89 reviews and 74 photos

Ok, Veritable Quandry is a great spot isolated on the west side of downtown on 2nd. Beautiful trees and landscaping make the outside of the place look like a home (believe it was at one point).
Great bar to belly up to with an excellent list of specialty drinks. Try the mojito.
You can eat inside or out on the porch and whatever meal it is you will be pleased.
My wife and I went for breakfast and were thrilled. So much so that we took a friend there for dinner that night.
Breakfast - anything with mushrooms. Dinner - fresh fish. The sturgeon was great.

Dress Code: Nice place, but you can get away with Portland - casual jeans and a nice shirt.
Shorts, a tank top with your Budweiser hardhat....well may be not here Jethro.
