Bars where Pete has had a drink

#2286 - East End, Portland, OR - 9/13/2013
This was a pretty swell punk and alternative music venue with three rooms on two levels, most recently owned by local punk musician and bartender Tony Mengis (The Riffs, Soda Pop Kids, Defiance). The drinks and food were acceptable, the crowd was hipster, and the bands were much more interesting than average. However, East End closed on Aug 8, 2014 after fire hit the historic Osborn Hotel, and Mengis eventually gave up on re-opening and decided to move to Amsterdam.
