The new standard for tavern in Portland. No booze, no food, just beer. With Bailey’s, Green Dragon, and Deschutes Brewpub all opening up in the last year, Portland’s already sweet beer bar scene is improving substantially. This place is small and simple. I like. It is also very easy on the eyes and just FEELS GOOD to be in. It’s like having slippers & sweats on. They only pour West Coast beers when it comes to their tap selections. Personally I think that puts limits where limits don’t need to be, so my selection score is lower for that reason, though to be fair there was a little more geographic range in bottle menu. I get the whole support-local thing, but you can do that w/o making it totally exclusive. Aside from that, which I hope will change, this place is awesome and bounces right to the top of my list for places to visit anytime I hit P-town. I also love the location right downtown on Broadway, just off Burnside.

Bottom line on this place: tap list is amazing, staff is great and they have a real time tap-list you can see the amount of each beer left. Unfortunately, this place doesn’t seat many people at all and is crammed all the time. This isn’t a place to come and relax in. If it was, it might be the greatest bar in the world.

Wow this place has gone downhill. Terrible taplist that seems more random than curated. Terrible ambiance consisting mostly of out of towners. Bartenders too busy to talk beer at all/understaffed. This used to be a cool spot and I’m sad to see it as a place that blasts mediocre rap serving mediocre beer.

Great service, nice ambiance, good location, and decent selection. Found a couple bottles here I hadn’t seen in other places around town. Some nice restaurants and cocktail bars nearby, so its a great place to stop in to start the night. Had no issue parking, but could see how it might be tough. Worth a stop, for sure.

Neat place downtown, I like how they have a keg-o-meter so you know how close the keg is to empty. The service was fine, as good as you can expect when the place is packed! Selection was good, mostly local-ish beers. Good place, if you can get some real estate at the bar! Maybe a little over-rated, but not much.

Stopped in last summer pretty buzzed after a fest and had a cool pils on draft while sitting on the sidewalk patio. Good but not great selection for draft beers. Those weird TVs tell you how much is left per keg. Can’t wait to come back in a right frame of mind for a little more time.

Got there at 6 pm on a Tuesday, the place was packed and I couldn’t even find space in the bar but had to stand in the corner. A good sign as it means the place is popular. What pulled down the overall impression was the loud music they played, as if to overcome the loud talk. It did that. Good selection of Oregon breweries, not the best in town but still decent, pulls up. But overall I left the bar a bit disappointed. And its popularity means it’s difficult just to pop by for a beer when in town, as you may not find a place to sit, so I think I’ll stick to APEX and Belmont Station from now on. Visited: 2014-07-22

Very centrally located, small, loud and packed bar with a nice selection of beers on tap and bottles. Loads of locals on tap when I visited. This place would be perfect for a quiet afternoon visit. Samplers available, which is always a big plus. Overall easily the best place in downtown Portland.

Small place with quite a few esoteric beers on tap. Unfortunately, I picked three dullards, but that can happen when you’re adventuresome. Service was great.

I haven’t given Bailey’s a rating yet, surprisingly, so I will rectify this oversight as I was there last night.
First, let me say that part of my rating is based on past experience. I’ve always found the service to be top notch, the beer list to be expansive, and the place to be cozy, and often crowded.
However, last night, there was a switch from the calm spot I know to modem sex music blaring at 120 dB. Maybe the Rose Festival? Either way, they aren’t Apex, and they shouldn’t try out that vibe. If it continues this way, I’ll shift my rating. Personally, I hope there’s never a reason to look down upon this Portland institution.

Cool little bar in portland. When I was there the entire time they were playing some weird/trendy/world/instrumental music which I was slightly annoyed by ... and i’m very easy to please when it comes to music. They have a TV displaying the tap list and the current status of how much is in each keg ... so cool! I had a couple rare local brews and was able to snag a cool bailey’s logoed snifter. Lots of board games to enjoy while you are having a pint or two. Overall a great experience.
