Very light space. More like a coffee shop than a bar, really. I went for the anniversary party at the tap list was killer, including a special sour blend from Cascade. These people clearly love beer and know how to do it very well. Definitely would like to go back.

Smelled like puke. Literally. As if someone had recently barfed on the floor. While other bars were packed, Bailey’s had about 7 people inside, all of whom seemed oblivious to the stench. IWe walked in and walked out.

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.

Visited for a couple of drinks while our wives were across the street at a vintage store...had a bit more time then we expected but that wasn’t a problem. There at openning and the place got mostly filled up fairly quickly however even with just the one guy (I think owner too) behind the bar service was quick and friendly. He definitely knew his beers, as well as his bottle selection, and there was a nice spread of west coast offerings focused more on smaller and local breweries. Prices were reasonable and the option of sample trays was great, not too mention that if you just want a taste of anything they sure are accomodating. When walking downtown its worth a stop in to see what they have on tap - and the online list of their beers (including amount of beer left in each keg) is accurate. No minors and no food. Nice windowed location with some fun old school board games (connect four) along with newer offerings like apples to apples.

A great bar in a great beer town. 22 taps (all good and often rotating) and uncountable bottle selection.There’s always something new on tap, even for the most experienced and far-ranging craft beer fans. Minimal attention to decor, but that’s okay --it’s basic and comfortable. Can get a bit crowded in the evening. No wait service; you go to the bar and order what you want. Beers are served quickly. Good, substantial Mexican dishes are available for order at the restaurant across the street (and they’ll deliver to the bar). Friendly and very knowledgeable staff. Decent prices. $7.50 for five samplers. Cool electronic beer menu board. A must if you are in downtown Portland.

Small little place across the street from Tugboat brewing. Excellent tap list. They don’t serve food, and you order everything at the bar, but a great laid back and relaxed atmosphere. It’s hard to go wrong with having about 20 taps that constantly rotate.

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.

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.

I loved this place. Cramped bar but great selection, fantastic live updates to the taplist, and quick and friendly service. I was at a conference and made this a nightly visit!

Bailey’s is ridiculous. Their beer menu is wonderful. It’s digital and includes keg levels. (Look it up. It was on the cover of beer advocate). They are an after-work place, and they close rather early. The space is a little awkward, but I hear they’re expanding. GO HERE.
