You can learn much about the character of a place by the bourbons it offers its patrons. The same may be said for the chef's dedication to the menu. A quick look at the shelves behind the bar, a brief scan of the dining offerings and you'll promptly get a sense of the establishment's authenticity.
In Red Star Tavern & Roast House's case, you'll find ample evidence of true tavern character. In fact, the place is steeped in tradition, personality and commitment to quality.
It starts the moment you cross the threshold. The historic building's lofty ceilings overlook a room gilded by towering windows. The bustling open kitchen and wood-burning oven, set amidst the rustic play of wood and natural tones throughout, catch your eye as you make your way in to the 150-seat dining room. (private dining is also available.)
Enjoy a Bite to Eat or a Sip to Drink
Whether you've come for happy hour or to enjoy a meal, Red Star Tavern's bar menu of handcrafted libations, exquisite selection of fine bourbons, thoughtful wine list and the line-up of microbrews will definitely leave you pondering your options. Indeed, Ian Momsen's brilliant overhead mural, dedicated to the amber art of bourbon, gracefully reminds you of life's subtler pleasures.
For breakfast, lunch and dinner, big plates, little plates and Portland's longest happy hour, Red Star Tavern & Roast House warmly looks forward to your company.
