1. Fish Sauce 407 NW 17th Ave, Portland, OR 07209

Fish Sauce, between Nob Hill and Peal District, keeps drinkers buoyed with inexpensive Vietnamese eats and strong cocktails in a casual nautical space lit by mason-jar lamps. The sips are the true lure, formulated by mixologist Tommy Klus, who was the bar consultant at Kask and Bluehour. But when happy hour rolls around, the food prices impossible to resist: half banh mi sandwiches, fried jicama-egg rolls, and steamy bowls of pho are natural partners with cocktails that nod to Southeast Asian flavors, like Two Birds (vodka, orange liqueur, lemon, with a pickled kumquat garnish).
