The Bar Exam


The Nest 8pm

"Though quite different from the old nest on Alberta, this bar is fantastic. 3 floors and a great patio make this bar a great place to spend your evening with cheap drinks and an eclectic crowd."
PDX Bars

"Consider it a punk-rock family reunion in a little cabin in the wilds of Belmont."

Barlow Tavern 8pm

"Walking into the Barlow Tavern is like entering another world—in another city, in another state, and possibly, in another decade. This is might be the closest one can get to having a beer at the Roadhouse in Twin Peaks..."

The High Dive 9pm

"The low-key feel (four beers on tap and a crowded liquor shelf) offers a nice contrast to the bright-and-busy Jolly Roger across the street..."
Willamette Week

"...a nice, serviceable, bar."

Hungry Tiger Too 8pm

"A pair of 'gr-r-reat' American bar menus, one full of 'awesome' organically minded 'vegan delights' (including corn dogs and dairy-free soft serve) and the other full of classic carnivorous eats..."

"...sit back and enjoy the floorshow as the bar fills up with bearded dudes in American Apparel hoodies accompanied by stylish waifs rocking their best ragamuffin rags."
