Alberta Street Pub

Open 4pm to 1amish Every Day

Re-established in 2013, the Alberta Street Pub is a complete remodel of the old neighborhood Public House. The kitchen serves up an inspired and locally sourced menu to compliment our craft cocktails and the 21 rotating draft beers. The Pub continues its tradition of friendly service with skilled bartenders, table service, a live music venue, and enormous heated patio. The venue side has been updated as well with a focus on acoustics and comfort. We offer one of the best listening environments in Portland with an intimate setting and a high quality sound system. Whether it’s bluegrass, jazz, folk, country, soul, or funk you’ll find something to love nearly every night of the week. Ask about our service industry discounts or discover our happy hour food and drink specials Monday through Friday from 4 to 6pm.

The Department of Gold is essentially the band version of the movie Rocky IV. The brainchild of husband-and-wife team (and former members of Sassaparilla) Dan Frantz and Emily Caffee-Frantz, the music is equal parts shimmery pop guitar, funky rhythm and soulful vocals -- with a dash of Bob Seger.

Comprised of members George Lewis III, Jeremy Wilkins, Britt White and Jason Roark, Hawks Do Not Share is electronic based dream-pop. The lyrics are sparse, but poignant, and delicately tied to a melody that floats over a wash of processed synth, reverbed guitars, and digitized beats. There are hooks but there is also depth.
