600 E Burnside St., 236-4536, rontoms.net, 3 pm-2:30am daily.
Upon immigrating to Portland, you’ll inevitably cruise by the corner of East Burnside Street and 6th Avenue on a Sunday night and wonder why the sidewalk is choked with the city’s young, broke and fabulous. Rontoms’ Sunday Sessions are an essential addition to the bucket list of any young Portlander. A glorious outdoor patio exists to provide respite from the interior congestion that makes ordering a Saphira (ginger vodka, lemon juice, cayenne, $9) a bad idea unless you’re keen on slurping it off the midcentury modern chaise lounge you’re likely to spill it on. An evening at Rontoms is as any night on the town should be—a high-fashion, low-concept communion of those who prefer to see and be seen. PETE COTTELL.
Happy hour: 3-6:30 pm daily. $1 off wells and drafts.
Entertainment: Free live music Sundays at 9 pm.
