Vintage Cocktail Lounge
May 11, 2018
Less reverential than some other Portland cocktail joints, Vintage none the less serves drinks of some quality. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly and no one will get sniffy if you’d rather have a beer than a Sidecar, but the bar tenders clearly know a great deal about their trade. They stock an extensive selection of liquors and use fresh fruit and house-made infusions. The results speak for themselves. The classics are all well executed but they’re comfortable enough with their place in the scheme of things to offer a glass of beer with a whiskey chaser as their signature ‘Local’ drink. The bar is attractively weathered, full of vintage furniture, and all told it’s pretty much the ideal neighbourhood bar.
