Lowbrow Lounge

Bar in Northwest

A dark, divey oasis holding its ground against the encroaching condo-ization of the neighborhood, the Lowbrow is old-school Portland at its best: weird art, great beer, friendly and unfussy bartenders, and better-than-dive-standard food at good prices. If you're meeting someone there, it's fun to arrive first, sit toward the back, and watch your friend stumble in blinded until their eyes adjust to the darkness.
