The Best Bar in Downtown Portland

To really get a sense of how good the barkeeps are at Red Star Tavern, order one of the creative cocktails — perhaps the Rose City Sour, with rose petal–infused bourbon, lemon, and egg white, or the Bitter-Sweet Symphony, sporting ingredients like hopped grapefruit bitters, aperol, and prosecco. If you just want one of those beers Portland is so famous for or a nice glass of wine (may we suggest something from nearby Willamette Valley?), you’re in luck. As if all that weren’t enough, this gem among bars in downtown Portland also boasts one of the biggest whiskey collections in the city, for all your bourbon, rye, and Canadian whiskey cravings (plus much more).

until 11:00 p.m.
Friday - Saturday
until 12:00 a.m.
Happy Hour: 4:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.

Meet the Bartender

Brandon Lockman grew up in the restaurant biz, but it wasn’t until a spot opened up behind the bar at Red Star Tavern that he found his true calling. And boy, are we thankful. (You will be, too!)
