#1519 - The Chapel Pub, Portland OR - 7/18/2011
As they do, McMenamins remodeled a great old building here into a nice neighborhood pub -- in this case what was previously the "Little Chapel of the Chimes," nee "Wilson-Chambers Mortuary," a former funeral home in Portland's Piedmont neighborhood. There is a sort of vestibule, a main room with a bar, a couple additional rooms and a nice patio (the upper floor is McMenamin's headquarters). It may seem a little formulaic at times, but God bless 'em for saving and restoring all these great old spaces for the northwest public.
If you've ever been to a McMenamin's, you know what you're in for. If you have not been to a McMenamin's, expect some pretty good beers brewed by the company, some funky artwork and decor, and better than average pub food.
