"For a city that sees rain for nine months out of this year, Portland boasts a remarkable number of restaurant and bar patios; almost every spot in town seems to have at least some amount of outdoor seating. Catch some rays while enjoying no-joke food and drink at these spots, which range from the dive bar smoking patio to the chic hotel rooftop. Note that a handful of these patios are still gearing up, but they'll be in full swing when the summer sun comes out."

1. The Solo Club
This is the bar for the amaro obsessed, but its casual European approach to drinking and eating makes it a rewarding escape for all. Highballs are a mainstay here, from fernet and cola to cava and your choice of amaro. Pull up to a cafe-style table to read the newspaper or catch up with friends.

The Other Best Cocktail Ever
Solo Club (2110 NW Raleigh)—Neighbors lamented the loss of longtime Northwest 23rd Ave restaurant Besaw’s when it was forced out by rapid condo development for you, the newcomer. But all’s well, for in the end, we have you to thank for the Solo Club, sister bar to the relocated and expanded Besaw’s, just a few blocks from the original location. Solo Club specializes in “coolers,” combos of soda, beer, bubbly wine or sometimes spirits with a wide array of bitters, vermouths, and a beloved Italian style of digestivo and aperitivo called amaro—the Portland favorite of which is fernet. Fernet Branca is the king of fernet, but (lucky us) Solo Club offers many others."

"The Solo Club, the long-awaited pastry, lunch, dinner, and cocktail lounge featuring a years-in-the-works dinner menu from Besaw's Executive Chef Dustin Clark, will open its doors on August 15, with a grand opening party lasting from 6 to 10 p.m".
SOMETHING STRANGE is happening in Northwest Portland: It’s getting cool again. Under pretenses of celebrating the Slabtown neighborhood’s working-class history, apartment buildings like the LL Hawkins are going up (next to a New Seasons, no less). And even those of us who can’t afford a studio have to admit the Hawkins is kind of a looker. (Didn’t we agree that all new buildings must be eyesores so Portlanders could keep carping?)
One neighborhood staple, Cana Flug’s Portland classic Besaw’s, lost its spot on NW 23rd last year and adapted by relocating and rebranding, moving to the LL Hawkins. And now Besaw’s has a sister in the next-door Solo Club. The colorful, bi-level café and bar has a focus that’s just about as Portland-cool as it gets: excellent coffee in the morning, amaro- and bitters-focused cocktails in the evening, and a Southeast-Asian inspired menu all day long.
