Portland Hunt and Alpine Club
May 11, 2018
This haven of craft cocktails and Scandi food is so on-trend it’s not true. The quirkily named Portland Hunt and Alpine Club is based in the town’s Old Port area, and the bar and restaurant itself is intimate and elegant with an appealing rustic air. Drinks are a big deal here and the bar boasts an eclectic cocktail menu featuring historic and classic drinks dating all the way back to the 1850s. There are also a number of more contemporary creations including three drinks available on tap (another box ticked). There’s also an impressive list of whiskeys and other spirits available, and you really should check out the food menu which specialises in Scandinavian fare, so think open sandwiches and charcuterie. The bartenders are informed and attentive and really do know their stuff. The bar even lays on occasional educational events for those with an interest in mixology trends and expanding their cocktail knowledge.
