Produce Row Cafe

Before it closed in 2014, Produce Row was a 40-year tradition of beer and music—home to multiple generations of Portland's music scene, going from the de facto homebase of Portland's pre-millennial indie-rock crowd to an unlikely IDM/EDM hang in the 2000s, before being revamped in 2008 into a New Portland beer hall and unlikely patio DJ hub—hosting international hip-hop night the Do-Over. But when owner Alan Davis suddenly shut it down, it seemed like forever. It wasn't. It's back from the dead (again). This industrial eastside institution has new ownership, and a few newer beer taps. Produce Row was one of Widmer's original accounts, but on the last visit the Brothers had given way to Caldera, No-Li, Crux and Migration. The interior that was refurbished during the second-to-last temporary closure is very nice, but the action is on the massive patio.

HAPPY HOUR: 4-7 pm and 10 pm-close daily, all day Monday. Discounts on select food, wine, beer and cider.

204 SE Oak St., 503-232-8355, producerowcafe.com. 11 am-10 pm Monday-Thursday, 11 am-midnight Friday-Saturday, 11 am-9 pm Sunday.
