Happy Hour Guidebook
Guiding you to the best!


70 NEW additions in 2015 edition! More than 600 total. Woo hoo!

CLOSED
NEW 2015 Edition (Mark your books)
First National Tap House 
p.72 -- Mysteriously shuttered with no heads up Feb.12
Jinx
p. 186
-- Now "12th Cocktail Lounge" -- Rebranded with upscale American bar menu

Pazzo is closed until St. Patrick's Day. I guess rehab can be a good thing :-)  It was so nice already though, I didn't feel like it was needed. Maybe a rebranding involved? I fully trust it will be every bit as good, and even better!


CLOSED
2014 Edition

Township & Range p. 328
Now Hawthorne Lobster House. Started a Happy Hour, but still needs work.
Gilt Club p. 180 -- After 8 years, closing to better enjoy family time
Blue Agave p.286 -- Now Migration Brewing's expansion to new PARTY space
Trebol p.279 -- later Luchador Bar (same chef/owner) which closed too. Word is that something new coming in that same spot soon.
Bamboo Thai p. 102 -- now Maiphai Thai Cuisine
Wildwood p. 221 -- After 20 successful years (lease issues)
Ivories Jazz Club p. 185 -- Gave it a good run while it lasted. I really like Khao San Thai which now occupies the space.
Gypsy p.371 -- After 20 years, a "somewhat-dive" closes (which is actually quite rare!)
Mellow Mushroom p.190 -- 10-Barrel Brewing coming in that locale soon. Gutted it!
Bar Lolo p. 237 -- Now Stella Taco (but lacks a real Happy Hour effort)
Sauvage p. 321 -- Too hidden?
4th Street Brewing -- p. 51 -- A nice space in Gresham, but a struggling one.
Produce Row -- page 343 -- Cross your fingers for something REALLY good in its place...
Caps & Corks -- p.68 -- Off that beaten path. Triple Lindy is now in that space.
Sand Bar -- p.146 -- Awwww. I really liked that one!
Bistro 153 (Beaverton) -- p.389


With 600 places in the book, fact is that some are going to close. But as a percentage, 16 out of 600 isn't too bad. And hope springs eternal -- all kinds of new places will open up throughout the year :-)
