Where can I go for happy hour tonight?

If you haven’t been outside? It’s amazingly gorgeous out there.
And, since it’s a kid-free Wednesday evening for me and I’m in one of those moods – I must indulge in a rare happy hour excursion, no?

Only – where shall I go? Rozanne graciously gave us a list of seven east-side places earlier – but I’m downtown, and want a quick location after work if I can.

Tried H20 a while back – left me cold, frankly (although I think they have a newer, lower-priced menu now – we’d tried it in the beginning.) I know – and love – the Brazen Bean, but surely that’s going to be jammed tonight, plus the porch won’t be available. Right?

So – if you were going to recommend a good downtown happy hour place (with outdoor seating if at all possible) – where would you send me?

    Betsy, I’m just a hick from the [Tualatin] sticks, so I have no practical advice, only a wish that you deeply enjoy whatever you find yourself doing!

    Went to Vault for the first time on Monday, and I liked it. It’s a bit upscale for Portland, but being in the Pearl it can pull that off.

    I adore the Vault. They have tasty eats and the drink list goes on so long you’d think it was beer and not the hard stuff. More upscale than the Denny’s lounge, but not so swanky I can’t sashay in wearing a pair of (Old Navy) jeans and fit in just fine. If it happens that you do decide to go there and Scotty is your bartender, your hour will be happy indeed.

    I second the motion for Saucebox. The Green Papaya Salad is yummy and only $4.

    A little late in the game but Henry’s Tavern is AWESOME. Good food, great service, good little outside courtyard, totally great happy hour.
