Sagamore Hill

Top choice Bar

in Portland

Early-20th-century elegance meets a 21st-century cocktail menu, plus lots of Teddy Roosevelt memorabilia and a ton of taxidermy at this excellent bar. The interior has an art-deco appeal that's tough not to love, especially after a Louisiana Purchase (rye, vermouth, bitters, charred thyme). Serves seasonal drinks, plus nonalcoholic mocktails.

Many drinks are named for presidents, including the '45' (gilded martini glass, hot air, elaborate orange coif, Cheeto garnish – $2500).
