Native Tap House, N.W.I.P.A., 24th & Meatballs and more new places to eat and drink


Our weekly glimpse into the future of Portland's restaurant and bar scene...

Das Beer, an upcoming online beer store, has applied for a license to offer on-site customer pick-up at 211 SE Madison two days a week.

Bill Hayden has applied for a full license to Pub @ The Yard, a bar at the Lumberyard indoor bike park at 2700 NE 82nd Ave.

Native Tap House has applied for an off-premises license in the space formerly home to Ellington Handbags at NW 1533 NW 24th Ave.

Tabla owner Adam Berger's upcoming meatball and milkshake concept, 24th & Meatballs, which is scheduled to open at developer Kevin Cavenaugh's "food cart incubator," the Ocean, at 2341 NE Sandy Blvd., has applied for a limited license.

The Elysian Ballroom will apparently replace the Crown Ballroom on the fifth floor of 918 SE Yamhill St.

More fresh produce in the Pearl? Yes, please. Local Choice Produce Market, a produce market and deli, has applied for an off-premises license at 830 NW Everett St. According to the application, the business will host "farmer dinners" and live music on first Thursday.

Thai restaurant Siam Society at 2703 NE Alberta will be replaced by a yet-to-be-named establishment from the owners of downtown's Paddy's Bar & Grill. The application says it will be "family friendly."

The Waffle Window is opening a second window at 2624 NE Alberta, for which it has applied for a limited license.

Rodney Dewalt of Dewalt Productions is opening Fontaine Bleau at 237 NE Broadway St. He has applied for a full license.

Daniel Huish has applied to open a bottleshop called N.W.I.P.A. at 6350 SE Foster Rd., in the former location of Guapo Comics and Coffee.

Bleachers Bar & Grill at 575 SW Saltzman Rd. has changed hands and will become Cedar Mill Grill. Will it still be "the local home for 'Parrotheads,' the fun-loving fans of tropical rocker Jimmy Buffett"? Time will tell.

Dilly's Bar & Grill at 2002 SE Division St. has a new owner: Patti Lassell, who is renaming it Seven Corners Bar & Grill. According to the application: "Our family originally purchased this business in 1983 and in 1987 purchased the building. It has been an [indecipherable] gathering place in this historic neighborhood for over 75 years and we are excited!" Seven Corners will offer video lottery, karaoke and dancing.

Boogies Burgers & Brew is going into a former used-car lot at 910 E Burnside St. Sassy’s strip club proprietress Stacy Mayhood owns the biggest stake, although the shop’s liquor-license application says Boogies will be “family friendly.”

Both Hopworks locations have applied for full liquor licenses. A nice stiff whiskey should help drown out all those screaming kiddies.

Milwaukie's Casa de Tamales has also applied for a full liquor license.
