Bailey’s Taproom Has Permanently Closed Its Doors Following a Temporary Closure
One of Portland’s most beloved beer bars and iconic downtown hang, Bailey’s Taproom, is gone for good. News of the closure, first reported by Brewpublic, has just dashed the hopes of every beer lover in town for a potential 2021 relaunch. When owner Geoff Phillips shut the doors on the Southwest Broadway business last September, there was hope that the closure would be temporary–we’d see taps flowing once again sometime this year when either the temperatures warmed enough to draw patio guests, or the pandemic had eased up. Unfortunately, COVID-19 caseloads have only worsened, and Bailey’s just couldn’t make it until an unknown spring or summer reopening date.
