It’s August and all of Europe is on vacation, kicked back sipping spritzes on the patio. And I think it’s high time we follow that tradition! Here are some of our current PDX patio favorites for your next spritz & snacking outing…
Bellwether | Open M-F 4 – 11 pm and Sat & Sun Noon -11 pm | 6031 SE Stark St
Happy 1-year anniversary to this dreamy bar that replaced the Caldera Public House at 60th & Stark. Scrumptious eats (Peach & burrata panzanella, Tamarind-glazed ribs) and expert cocktails like the No. 24 (Rye whiskey, grapefruit, Aperol, ginger, fizzy water)
Bar Cala | Open Wed thru Saturday 3-11 pm | 2703 NE Alberta St
This pink dream is a little slice of tropical vacation in the heart of the Alberta Arts District. I love the Spicy Caesar salad & shrimp cocktail. And to get your daily dose of Aperol? Look no further than La Toxica (serrano tequila, Aperol, Dolin Blanc, watermelon, lime.)
Ok Omens | Open every day 5-10 pm | 1758 SE Hawthorne Boulevard
They’re known for their wine but their Chanterelle Mushroom Pasta is my favorite and dare I say … the best pasta dish in Portland!
Matt’s Choice: Island Cafe | Open every day 11 am – 9 pm | 250 NE Tomahawk Island Drive
Munch on Halibut fish n chips right from the dock on Tomahawk Island on the Columbia River.
What is YOUR favorite PDX patio? We’d love to hear!
