Portland has a secret. It’s hidden beneath the city. So secret, in fact, that it doesn’t even have a name. It just exists. Behind an unmarked door off of 5th Ave, behind the eclectically posh @thehoxtonhotel. Past a doorman, down a shadowy flight of stairs, and behind a second unmarked door, exists a swank cocktail bar. A buttoned up den of relaxation and libation. With the only source of light coming from the handsomely backlit bar, and small lamps on each table...there is a certain elegance and mystery that lingers long past the point of having taken in your surroundings. This is a great bar to comfortably sit back with an excellent cocktail like this gin gimlet here, and take in the charmingly familiar clink of glassware and the quiet roar of those who are in on Portland’s newest secret, too.
