We went for drinks and tunes. There was a bluegrass band in the small bar and it was a great time, crowd venue.

We didn't order food but totally enjoyed the live music & beer. Before our trip to portland, I searched for live music and thought Laurelthirst looked perfect and bonus--music was free. Its a lucky neighborhood that has a bar like this one. Worth a visit.

My daughter and her boyfriend took my wife and me to Laurelthirst for the live music this past fall during our annual trip to Portland to visit her. A good bluegrass band was playing that evening. A lot of locals were present and it was very lively. We did not eat as we had reservations at Navarre later that night.... More

Laurelthirst is a great place to join with friends and/or family for some yummy bites and amazing local music. Sundays - shushhhh, don't tell anyone - offer free bluegrass lunches for all ages. Our kiddos love it! And the food is made with care and compassion. Try their homemade veggie burger or hummus. Yum. And if you get Tim as... More

The Laurelthirst is a small neighbourhood bar that has live local music. This makes for an intimate experience seeing a band play here. There is no TV in the bar, so there is no distraction competing with the music. The stage is small but decorative. There are a few regular house bands on a couple nights that are a few... More

while the food is mostly excellent, as well as affordable, it is the ambience of the establishment & the very frequent live music which is most outstanding. There is an antique bar with mirrors, a few pool tables in the back room, & a classic montage of a woman playing an instrument behind the stage. There are some tables &... More

Came in with some friends and family for a drink or two. They had a band from La Grande playing acoustic sets. Drinks were reasons able, and the atmosphere welcoming. Nice night spend enjoying music and well made cocktails.

A fun place to just hang out. The music venue is excellent. Very friendly crowd, mostly locals and regulars. I have been there many times to see Lewi Longmire and the Left Coast Roasters. They are an excellent jamming band. Great local beer. I have had a dinner there once, it was good bar food. There are several restaurants nearby... More

Good beer, large menu, clean, pleasant. A nice neighborhood - type spot for easy dining! We have eaten here several times. The servers are friendly and reasonably fast. The food is tasty, yet simple. Parking is easy. Lots of serious beer and frivolity.

This is a nice neighborhood bar. It's not five star dining, nor does it pretend to be. There's no Maitre' De to show you to your table. They've got good beer, they're not wickedly expensive, and they have some great local bands that play there. if you're looking to impress your date, don't bring her here. It's just not that... More
