What You'll Get


A finely crafted cocktail, like a well-bundled child in the winter, is multi-layered, warming, and surprisingly valuable in a snowball fight. Today's Groupon equips a throwing arm with inventive sips and savories: for $12, you get $25 worth of classic cocktails and snazzy bar bites at Vintage Cocktail Lounge in Southeast Portland.

The cozy interior of the lounge provides an inviting backdrop for tossing back classics and discovering new favorites. Peruse the creative menu, or ask a friendly bartender for a suggestion that suits the mood. Soothe a sore throat by gargling an Ambassador—a boozy blend of absinthe, St. Germain, grapefruit bitters, and soda with grapefruit ($9)—or quench a dry mouth with a Corpse Reviver ($7.50), featuring brandy, Menta Branca, Fernet Branca, anise tincture, and a lemon twist. Those who would say something like "Give it to me straight, doc" can slam back The Local ($4), an unadulterated sip of Olympia beer plus a shot of house whiskey. Soak up potency with clever eats that include grilled flatbread sandwiches ($7–$9); spiced nuts ($2); and a green-apple, roasted-garlic, queso-fresco, and blue-cheese pizzeta ($6), among others.

A rustic, old-fashioned décor and experienced beverage builders give the intimate space a huge amount of character and class. Helmed by former Trebol barman Justin Atkins, Vintage Cocktail Lounge is the ideal place to woo an international spy, unwind after a stressful week, or mentally rehearse for a breakthrough role in an upcoming film noir.

Reviews

Vintage and its fresh, inventive fare have grabbed the press's attention; the Oregonian, Willamette Week, and the Portland Mercury all pour favorable reviews. Yelpers give Vintage an average of 4.5 stars, and 92% of Urbanspooners recommend it:

  • Vintage's fare is simple but satisfying and cheap, while influenced by Trebol's credo of using quality, seasonal ingredients. You'll find addictive single-serving pizzetas ($7) layered with queso fresco, pancetta and fresh herbs, and grilled flatbread sandwiches ($8) in appealing combinations such as roasted chiles with garlicky greens, gruyere and mustard aioli. Don't miss the zingy guacamole with thick-cut corn chips. – Christina Melander, Oregonian
  • Go to Vintage to sip on—and geek out on—classic spirits and cocktails. It’s the kind of place where you can order everything from Zwack and Cynar to shochu, rhubarb bitters and allspice tincture, and no one will even bat an eye. And that’s a gift all in itself. – Liz Crain, Willamette Week
  • Great drink selection, with some local favs (I love Aviation gin), and games in the back, so you can drown your sorrows when you get your ass handed to you in a Sorry! tournament. – Tom T, Yelp
  • Lemme tell ya, that bar tender knows his whiskeys. I hold in high regard tenders who take their liquor expertise and use it to educate and benefit the customer. – Jodi C., Yelp
