Bar Guide 2014: Pope House Bourbon Lounge

Pope House Bourbon Lounge

2075 NW Glisan St., 222-1056, 4 pm-close daily.

Pope House has two big draws. The first, of course, is the huge selection of whiskey, within this converted Alphabet District Victorian house. The Pope is an enthusiastic evangelist for all things malted and barreled, with a massive collection with everything from Old Crow ("four year," $4) up to 23-year-old Pappy ($100) plus a large collection of Old World cousins to bourbon. (I prefer my whiskey straight here, as some of the cocktails error on the side of sweetness.) The second big draw is the large front patio, which gets table service, in a neighborhood without much of it. Find your way there on a sunny day and it's not so different than a Kentucky porch swing. MARTIN CIZMAR.

Happy hour: 4-7 pm Monday-Saturday, all day Sunday. Cheap pints, wine, cocktails, select whiskeys and food.
