Clyde Common is an airy and welcoming addition to Portland's downtown scene. More of a restaurant with a top-flight bar attached than a bar in its own right, this is one of the growing number of venues in the city that serves drinks of the very highest standard. Classic cocktails are a big deal. Simple drinks prepared with care and the very best ingredients. It sounds so basic but so few places can pull it off. If you're not sure where to start the bar tenders are knowledgeable and will be happy to guide you towards a drink you'll appreciate. (The Breakfast of Champions, blending calvados, Grand Marnier and quince syrup is a good place to start). The food served in the main restaurant is pretty special too.
