2724 NE Pacific St., 503-233-3655, paydirtbar.com.

For those looking for a serious whiskey collection without overly serious vibes, Paydirt delivers. There's more than enough whiskey in this industrial, laid-back room in the Zipper building—bourbon, scotch, Japanese and Irish. Paydirt also pours Fernet Branca on tap, and is generally bustling with thirsty youth.
