Where to Grab a Drink in Portland, Maine Right Now, According to an Industry Expert
What started as a pandemic pop-up is now one of the city’s most popular brick-and-mortar spaces. Known for amazing fried chicken and beyond, Crispy Gai’s bar program is worth a stop in its own right. With drinks that have a tropical flare thanks to ingredients like coconut milk, passionfruit, and a bird's eye chili tincture, each cocktail goes well with Crispy Gai’s food, but are also excellent stand-alones. And for anyone who doesn’t drink or wants to take it easy, do not miss their non-alcoholic selections, which are some of my favorites in the city. I am currently living for the Nada Colada which is just as rich and satisfying as its spirited counterpart.
