In the classic Westerns of yore, much ado is made about territory, with hardscrabble pioneers staking a claim on dusty plots to call their own. Such is the vibe at Landmark Saloon, the closest thing you'll find to a country bar anywhere west of I-205. It may be outnumbered—surrounded on all sides by third-wave coffee shops, French bakeries and yoga studios—but Landmark is holding its ground. Its turf includes one of the best patio spaces in Portland, with enough room for horseshoes, cornhole and tables for your entire posse to enjoy Rainier tallboys and barbecue from the Leroy's Familiar Vittles cart parked outside. Inside you'll find Pendleton blankets on the walls and live music of the honky-tonk variety. There's also a solid list of local and national craft brews, because despite the all pearl snaps and the dudes named Jethro, this is still Portland.
