1. Bar Bar 3943 N Mississippi Ave, Portland, OR 97227

The little sister bar and patio to the musically inclined restaurant/concert venue Mississippi Studios (located in the same building), Bar Bar's specialties are the life's simple pleasures: a high quality burger, a cheap can of beer, and good music. The burger at this Boise joint's, with its grass-fed beef, house-made ketchup, and a secret-recipe sauce between a thick and soft potato bun, is one of the best in Portland, and while the beer list is short and craft-free, the inventive list of specialty cocktails will more than make up for it.

Operating for almost 50yrs, Mary's Club is perhaps the original Portland bastion of boob-baring. Stop in for a drink at this iconic PDX club.
