Multnomah Whiskey Library Set to Open The Green Room

Monday, April 20, 2015

Multnomah Whiskey Library is set to open an extension of their popular boîte spot early this summer. The Green Room will be located in the storefront next to the soon-to-be-former entrance to the Library. 

MWL’s Jordan Felix, Bar Manager, and Jennifer Quist, General Manager, see the extension as the “start of the experience” of the much buzzed-about spirits space. “It will be a starting point to an evening at the Library,” says Jordan. To that end Felix says that The Green Room will focus on such low-proof alcohols like sherry and wine. Felix says there will be at least five cocktails to choose from—“to open the palate” he says—as well as a punch bowl. 

The 30-seat space will help alleviate one of the biggest concerns at the Library: the wait. “Waiting to get a seat in the Library was always the hardest part of providing great service,” says Jennifer. “Now, with this expansion, we are able to take care of our guests while they are waiting for their table in the main room.”

And there will be light: Being located on the street will allow for more light to filter in the space and it also provides the added opportunity of being able to locate what seems to have become not only one of the hardest places to get into but also sometimes to find in the city. 

In other related MWL news, “Sports Day” is coming to the Library on May 2. Join MWL for the “141st Run for  the Roses,” aka The Kentucky Derby beginning at noon. That same evening MWL will be the site to watch the “Fight of the Century” between Mayweather and Pacquiao. That event kicks off at 6 pm. Visit multnomahwhiskeylibrary.com for complete details.

Multnomah Whiskey Library and The Green Room are located at 1124 SW Alder St., 503-954-1381.

For this week, I chose cheaper bars. Christmas has come and gone and this is the time to sit on your duckits until tax returns come. So, in February we’ll roll out the fancy bars, but this week’s theme is frugality.

SW Portland.

Santeria and Mary’s club. Tucked away in the alley of Ankeny off Broadway, Santeria is the last bastion of old school Portland. The service is efficient, food is excellent, and they have a decent, if limited, booze selection. The most important thing though, and what I mean by old school: Santeria is still cheap. The owners are about the two sweetest people you’ll ever meet and all the tips are split evenly amongst the kitchen and bar. It’s like some sort of utopia ideal, which works in theory, but…well definitely check it out quick.

NW Portland.

Paymaster Lounge.
This is one of the few places where one can still smoke and play pool simultaneously. They have a large heated patio with outdoor pool table. The pool table is crooked but that just makes for a longer game and more Paul Newmanesque photo-ops.

SE Portland.

Lovecraft Bar. This is the kind of bar you daydreamed about whilst sitting all the way in the back of the classroom, popping zits and trying to hide the fact that you’re blaring NIN on your headphones. This is an actual place to have a good time and not a place to be seen. If you are the type that only lets loose once every two months, Lovecraft is the place to do it. If you bring a book with you to the bar every night of the week, you might be annoyed at the high level of energy.

NE Portland.

Beulahland. If an indicator of a good bar is minimal staff turnover, Beulahland gets the prize. This bar may no longer be the lynchpin that keeps inner NE 28th Avenue together, but it has played a vital role in making the street a fun place to hang out. With coffee and minors on the South side bar and alcohol and photobooth on the North side, reasonably priced drinks, good food and staff, it’s a great place to begin or end your 28th Avenue crawl.

St. Johns.

Fixin’ To. St. johns is a wonderful place to observe small town life. If you make it down the long and formidable Lombard Street, you’ll discover there are a lot of people just like you who simply never left. They will be at one of the two heated mega patios, talking banal minutia over cheap beer.
