We visited on recommendation from Nick at Saucebox and were not disappointed! Loved the atmosphere, the drinks, and the pool tables. Great service too.

We went here for a company party. They rented the whole place out and we had a great time playing pool, playing blackjack, having drinks, eating the buffet and socializing. I really liked the layout and the atmosphere of the place and would go again!

This visit was for our company holiday party. When the location was announced, the idea of going to a "pool hall" did not appeal to me. As it turned out this place is magnificent. Great ambiance. Great food. Pool tables, ping pong tables, dart boards....More

This is a very unassuming place (with an exterior entrance that gives you no sense of what the place is like as you climb a long set of stairs). Yes, it really is a pool hall but a stylish one... HOWEVER, the main dining area...More

Uptown is one of the top two bars I have ever visited, and the other one on the list is not in Portland. Hallelujah for bar food that doesn't make you regret eating it; thank the chef for his amazing five-course meals. I'm a wine...More
