Apotheka was so cool... but it is gone. I heard that they were going to open a new spot. \r
Where did you go, Apotheka?

My wife went here with some friends a while back ... said they crushed herbs and stuff into the drinks. But, alas ... they WENT OUT OF BUSINESS. Serves 'em right if they were as snobby as some of these reviewers lead us to believe.

It must be the yuppies from california and repressed, small-town hipsters that think this place is heaven. Who wants to eat over priced snack food while some egoist with a mac makes you go deaf with his "homemade" music? The snacks are

We went to Apotheke on a Friday night and it was deserted. Also the drink menu, while long, wasn't terribly exotic. Where was the Turkish Pepper? Or non-Aalborg Aquavit? Humph.

Pros: Bartender seemed knowledgable

Cons: Dated design, disappointed selection, empty bar!

Apotheke is a beautiful white space, just upstairs from Andina. The staff is really knowledgeable about all of the wines, beers, and liquor and is happy to make suggestions. I love that they give you a syllubus with the menu, explaining

Pros: service

Cons: parking, but that's not really their fault

They have some really interesting booze. \r

Beyond that, the bartender was rude when I asked how to pronounce some random swedish beer. One of those "you mean you don't know?" moments. Gee, sorry dude. The gentleman that brought our

Pros: Rare and interesting liquor

Cons: Everything else

Like other RECENT posters, we waited and waited. And waited. Why is is it so hard for servers in PDX to do their jobs efficiently and

Pros: food, decor

Cons: service, value

My experience with the service was very similar to benstein's. I almost chewed my arm off waiting for the food, which tends to put a person in a foul mood. Then the portions were so incredibly small we had to go somewhere else and eat

Pros: good food, nice interior

Cons: horrible, painfully slow service

This is hands down the best bar in Portland. Without a doubt the only place that can say what it is doing is truly unique. If you're an adventurous punter and don't expect to drink cosmos, than you'll love this place. Great music tops

Pros: Very unusual libations

Cons: Wish the menu would change more frequently

Apotheke's grub and grog was worth the three hour road trip. Being an avid eater of wild game, I chose the Westmalle Stew. It was tender and filling. Excellent choice and cheap to boot. My wife had the frog legs...finger licking good.

This is a must-visit location in the Pearl District. The potat/fries are absolutely out of this world and makes my mouth water just thinking about them. All of the dishes are unique and yummy. I left feeling tranquil yet energized...and

This is a local hideaway that is a great place for first Thursday time outs. Kids are welcome before 9pm. Very chill.

I enjoyed Apotheke thoroughly. It is mellow, has great music, the food is good, the drinks are good/rare and the staff personality is fantastic. I personally enjoy the hidden spots of Portland and this one is definitely hidden. It is

My wife and I came here because it promised Scandinavian food, and we'd just had a nice trip to Scandinavia. While the food was indeed tasty and Scandinavian (love me some gravlax!), it's the atmosphere and the drinks that are so amazing
