#2573 - Ming Lounge, Republic Cafe, Portland, OR - 7/11/2014

Republic Cafe and Ming Lounge, Portland, OR
I do not know how long Portland's Republic Cafe has has a (licensed) bar, but the cafe  has been around since prohibition and in the 70s the bar extended to the entire current banquet room. (pdxmonthly) If you like lounges in Chinese restaurants this one is not to be missed.

The Republic Cafe, established in 1922, is the oldest Chinese restaurant in Portland, and the Ming Lounge, "the most beautiful seedy bar in Portland," (wweek) is the last remaining Chinese dive bar in this city's Chinatown. The romantic, scarlet glow of the cozy bar section is a perfect mood setter, the cafe serves classic American Chinese, and the lounge offers the cheap, heavy pours of a classic dive, but with a wider range of cocktails than the typical dive.
