Valentine's

232 SW Ankeny St.
Portland, OR, 97204
248-1600 | Website
Neighborhood: Old Town/Chinatown

5 pm-2:30 am nightly.

The place even serves absinthe (the real stuff, with wormwood, for $10); you almost expect to see Toulouse-Lautrec watching the poetry readings and alt-comedy shows from the upstairs loft.

Food Reviews & Stories
There are plenty of bars that double as music venues in Portland. But there are few I would go to if it weren’t for a killer show that night. Valentine’s, besides being a bastion of the experimental and electronic music communities, is also a really fantastic bar, with rotating art on th   More

Drink 2008


Food Reviews & Stories
Valentine’s looks like your college buddy’s unfinished attic-turned-bar, a half-decorated bohemian nook that acts more like an art space than your average pub and has a crowd to match. Beer selection is limited and the happy hour is pretty basic, but young aesthetes crowd Valentine&rsquo   More
