Smaller version of the famed largest bookstore in America, Powell´s Books. This is a neat version that will give you a taste, while giving you enough time to check out the rest of Portland, while situated on the popular shopping on SE Hawthorne.
If you want to skip the crowds at the big Powells downtown, come to this locations - it's smaller but still mighty! There's a great garden and food Powells book store next door too.
If you can't make it downtown, you can see a smaller Powell's on the east side of the river.
“The reputation McMenamin's has for food and beer is that it doesn't meet Portland foodie standards - it's just okay. It's their beautiful renovation of historical buildings that is really awesome. Check out the Backstage bar over at the Bagdad -- a cool space with high ceilings and pool tables. If you go on a weekday, you might be able to find a spot to sit at the mezzanine.”
“It's fun, quirky, with great food, great drinks, and a great place to go alone or with a small group.”

“Sexy cocktail bar in a former hotel lobby serving American small plates, platters, and eclectic drinks. ”
