Venue Info

Northern Spain invades East Portland in Bar Casa Vale, adding to the long list of reasons why we too should adopt the midday siesta. An extensive menu allows you to go small with a glass of Spanish red or sherry and a snack like anchovy olives or a tapas-sized portion of "chorizo-style" octopus, or settle in for a full, slow meal of smoked game hen. Reverence is given to Iberian ham here, and a slicing station displaying a tantalizing 4-year-aged pig leg next to the bar is evidence enough. Cocktails betray both European and pan-Latin influences -- from a Negroni Sbagliato (Campari, sweet vermouth, cava) to a Coquito (light rum, coconut cream, spices) -- and are best sipped on the large outdoor patio.
