Bar Manager at Trifecta Tavern, PDX’s tallest tattooed bartender
Choice Spots: The Hutch, Free House, Dig a Pony, Rum Club, Slow Bar, My Father’s Place
Like many bartenders, Colin Carroll, the bar manager at Trifecta Tavern, is a parent. When he’s not infusing cocktails with charred wood in a sous vide container or clarifying milk punches, he’s usually with his two kids. However, on the rare occasion that he has a night out, he hits up the bars near his place, east along 50th, or the bars near his work. His friends work down the street from Trifecta at Dig a Pony, so he’ll stop in there for a cocktail in the afternoon, before it gets too crazy with west-siders. He’s also a fan of the Tijuana Speed Ball at Slow Bar, and the cheap drinks at My Father’s Place. Any night at Rum Club you’re likely to see an off work bartender knocking back a few daiquiris, and Colin is no different -- if he does it make it out for a night, it’s a favorite.
