The whiskey selection is heavy on the
bourbon at Old Gold--no complaints here. The sandwiches are stellar, especially the bahn mi and grilled cheese. Old Gold is crowded during happy hour but tends to thin out as the night goes on.
New North Portland bar with a lot of
charm, due mainly to their attentive bartender. They have a huge scotch list, but I got a BFK (Baileyâ??s, Frangelico and Kahlua in coffee) and he initially put 151 in it. It was too strong for me but he remade it with a smile. Itâ??s a great locals place, refined but not snooty.
