Bar Of The Gods

Bar Of The Gods. How can you ignore that name? How can you even call yourself that? So I headed to online reviews like I often do.

Alexandra I – Bar of the Gods is the best!! This bar is what it is. The drinks are stiff and cheap (my favorite kind), but still tasty.  Their happy hour is the happiest hour I have come across so far. It is EVERY DAY from 4 – 8 pm.

Andrew D. – Twice I walked in both very hungry and thirsty each time and walked out very satisfied both times.

Michelle H. – It really has everything you could want. You can catch a game on one of the TVs, but it doesn’t turn the place into a sports bar. I have yet to run into anything overly frat boy/douche/hipster.

It seems that the over all theme is strong drinks, friendly service from a dive-looking (they were named Top 20 Best Dive Bars in the U.S.) bar that is really just  a great place to hang out.  Not much else you could ask for.

From their website – “Bar of the Gods is darker than Plato’s cave, but only in terms of lighting.  BOG is a friendly, lighthearted bar, populated mostly by a younger crowd of amicable mortals”

They have Pinball, Pool ($.50), open at 4pm with happy hour going until 8pm (which I rarely see) and open late.

You can find them at
4801 SE Hawthorne
Portland, Oregon 97215


You can follow their sparsely updated Twitter account (Hey it’s dark in the bar) or the still-in-development Facebook page.  Cut them some slack, it’s hard to keep up on all of this. 🙂
