Met a friend here for drinks one day after work. Instantly felt out of place as neither of us are the hipster types and nobody was going to go out of their way to make us feel welcome. Nonetheless we ordered beer and set about catching

The atmosphere at the Crow Bar is pretty awful. From the moment I walked in, I began to feel suffocated - by both the crowd and the obnoxiously loud music. It wouldn't have been so bad, except that the hipsters who work there are

Though several of the bartenders are fairly friendly (not saying the drinks beyond beer are). But, frankly, the attitude and obvious mediocrity stems from the owner's fear-mongering over employees it seems. At least one a-hole can't seem

I have a bunch of friends who live in the N Pdx neighborhood who love this bar, but I cant figure out why. Its really nothing special, and on the occasions they have convinced me to go there I have wished I stayed home. This bar is fine, but much like any other bar in the world.

The Crow bar is a smokey den filled with an eclectic mix of characters. The bar is long and sprawling as is the layout of the place. They serve beer and liquor although most of their taps are not that exciting compared to other places in Portland. If you're really feeling adventurous you can order a Margarita on tap. There are 2 pool tables in the back which are always full. I only find myself here after drinking somewhere else and making a poor decision to have another. Now that the smoking ban is in place the atmosphere may be a little lighter.

The crow bar is a great place, ...however, employees can make or break an experience and our was broken.

Everything was smooth and uneventful until we tried to use the restroom. Although it was a nice dance display, after waiting 10 minutes we had to knock and yell to the three people inside, that there were in fact, people who needed to urinate waiting. uh, duh.

We had a few drinks straight on the rocks super simple, sum delicious small tid bit to eat. Right at the end....during last call my boyfriend began to choke, possibly on a delicious chip served with our grilled cheese, but when we asked the bartender woman immediately infront of us with urgency for a glass of water (twice) she directed us to the back patio for water. ...in our pressing circumstance i ran to the patio & grabbed the much needed water. Since she was otherwise detained & busy pouring the hurried last call 2am drinks as well as to busy to get/notice a choking man .....rather than talking directly to her i jotted a note on the bar napkin and left it in the empty water cup, hoping this may stir some reflection on the situation in her mind. Evidently, this got her attention faster than a choking man.

In all, this email is to remind these people & this woman to pay attention to the details. Assuredly, she will dismiss us as a**holes. i say, who cares. Pay attention to people, details, and situations .....or all is lost.

ps: regulars who righteously use your establishments only restroom as a playground are a bars most obnoxious patrons! ! !
will not return if the same women is on shift, but like this establishment otherwise.

Pros: convenience, good drinks, great atmosphere

Cons: unhelpful bobb haired brunnete server

Feels like a neighborhood bar...inexpensive wine makes it nice to try a variety of styles and brands. Happy Hour is great and is very relaxing, not the same feel you might have at a Pearl and DWT spot. Bartenders are waitress staff were quick and very friendly!

Great neighborhood bar, low key, no frills, pool, jbox music but the smoke is outragious. I'd love to go back but no way with all the smoke.

Editorial from

In Short
This long space with exposed brick and ductwork overhead is made cozy by wood accents, plants and flickering white votives. The hip 20- to 30-something crowd lines the long bar or slides into church pews-turned-booths.…
