Things to Do in Portland: Happy Hour at The Bent Brick

Things to Do in Portland: Happy Hour at The Bent Brick

Back when the sun was actually shining in Portland (our week preview of Summer) I was invited by Little Green Pickle and The Bent Brick to sample the Happy Hour at the NW Portland bar and restaurant. I was excited about the opportunity, because I had heard a lot about The Bent Brick, but I hadn’t been able to visit yet.

The Bent Brick Happy Hour

I don’t want every one of my reviews to be effusively exclaiming the awesomeness of the place/product that I am trying… however, I do cull my opportunities to things and places that I feel I would enjoy. I promise to always be completely honest in my thoughts of a place or product that I review… and, with that said, The Bent Brick was AWESOME.

Reasons to try The Bent Brick’s Happy Hour:

  • Great atmosphere. The NW area that the restaurant is located is sort of near a whole bunch of parking areas and highway in ramps. Then you walk into a restaurant with several different well-designed areas for your desired dining atmosphere. The food bloggers and I sat down in the Jenga lounge area. A large Jenga (like the game) structure sat in the middle of several stump-like tables and a comfortable bench. The restaurant also had a beautiful outdoor area for when the weather is nice, a dining area with bright pink chairs, and a bar with metal bar stools. 
  • Simple, affordable, and delicious food. We tried one of each of the items on the Happy Hour menu. The dishes ranged from $1 to $6 . My favorites included the drunken radicchio and country ham plate.
  • Beautifully made, super smooth cocktails. I loved that the cocktails were served in simple glassware without a lot of fuss or garnish. They just let the drink shine! I enjoyed the Pete & Peet (I got it because of the name of course! Anyone else remember Pete & Pete?) made with high west whiskey, bourbon, cana’s feast chinato, and orange bitters.

I will definitely be back to The Bent Brick for Happy Hour… and, I can’t wait to try their dinner menu! Big thanks to Little Green Pickle and The Bent Brick for inviting me out to Happy Hour. And, a big CHEERS for the other Portland area bloggers that attended— Michelle of Hummingbird High, Marisa of Margaritas In The Rain, and Erin of Bakery Bingo.
