Building on its reputation for bicycles, beers and brunch, the Williams District has evolved into a dynamic destination for locals and visitors alike.

 

North Williams is a Main Grid Room.

Description

 

A district with a lot of history, in the 1940s and '50s, Williams Avenue was teeming with jazz clubs and speakeasies. The neighborhood has also housed some of Portland's hardest workers. Over the years, countless commercial warehouses have populated these streets, filled with people who create and repair everything from plastics to lawnmowers. These skilled laborers inadvertently developed one of Portland's first DIY communities, and established a culture that's still alive and well.

These days, the Williams District has a low-key urban vibe, courtesy of yoga studios and green indie shops and cafes. It's not unusual to see a stray chicken walking down Williams, having escaped from its urban coop, a dad pulling his kids down the street in a vintage Radio Flyer wagon, or a group of bicyclists dressed in outrageous costumes for a good cause.

It would be easy for any true DIYer to get lost in this shop for happy hours, which boasts an astonishing inventory of all manner of bits and bobs.

Vendetta

 

From the outside, this bar might be mistaken for a simple garage. It's nothing fancy, really, and doesn't really draw the eye from the outside. However, the large patio in back, neon lights inside, and steady stream of patrons moving in and out of the large door clearly identifies it as a night-life hangout.

 

This location is a public hangout.

  • This is a Cautionary Tale Hangout or Headquarters.

A tucked-away compound that houses a large garage, junkyard, and a members-only bar.
