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.

The band, whose name is Latin for “while I breathe, I hope” is feel good, frantic folk complete with fiddle and musical saw. There is also some foot stomping involved. Banjo/guitar player and vocalist Bowie Johnson sings lyrics ranging from natural disasters to lovers that smell like gin, bassist Craig England Jr bring the movement and lends a hand with the voice, while violinist Rafael Rangell and musical saw, accordion player Anthony Yousko’s instrumental arrangements flirt with so many genres from celtic folk balladeer to surf rock.

Sprouting from the fresh grave of the San Diego band Cain Street, Big Sid and the Wiggle began its adventure in the summer of 2012. You know who Big Sid is, and the wiggle ­ well, the wiggle’s in the giggle and the wiggle’s in the water. With lyrics to ruffle the masses and rhythms to move them asses, Big Sid and the Wiggle make music to satisfy the soul. It’s small stream, still clean, flowing, and drinkable. It's punk rock, hip not, groovy like Rasta. It’s out there, in here, and guilty as charged.
