500 NE Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., 503-232-9977, spiritof77bar.com.

The epitome of a Portland sports bar. Named after the Blazers' championship season, the cavernous Spirit of 77 hall contains the perfect amount of local touches: indoor bike rack, espresso stand, and a back bar constructed from a reclaimed Hillsboro basketball court. The multiple TV screens should satisfy fans, and their bored partners can take solace in the elevated comfort food or dozen taps ($7 for 20 ounces) of beers by local breweries.
