1. Paymaster Lounge

1020 NW 17th Ave., 943-2780.

Get the frozen pina colada (dear God, not the terrible hurricane!) inside this Slabtown art-dive, then make your way through the labyrinth to our new favorite patio in Portland. Outdoor pool table!

2. Spin Laundry Lounge

750 N Fremont St., 477-5382, spinlaundrylounge.com.

A sleek, sun-bathed room where young and hip NoPo can sip beer or espresso while washing the sex off their Company Store duvet covers. Understated electropop by Röyksopp commingles with the hypnotic din of Space Age Electrolux machines, which take credit cards.

3. Growler Guys

816 SE 8th Ave., Suite 109, 971-255-0715, thegrowlerguys.com.

This newish growler fill station and pub has 48 taps in a bare-walled, shiny-floored space next to Grand Central Bowling, including lesser-seen handles like Boneyard's Bone-A-Fide Pale and Reverend Nat's D'anjou Mosaic perry. Most important, they top off your glass with CO², keeping your brew fresh for several weeks.

4. Scout Beer Garden

Good Food Here pod, Southeast Belmont Street and 43rd Avenue, scoutpdx.com.

You're only a block from the Horse Brass, but who wants to be stuffed into a dim British pub on a sunny day? Scout gets a badge for an impressive beer selection and plenty of shade.

5. Victory Bar

3652 SE Division St., 236-8755, thevictorybar.com.

An oldie but a goodie.
