Associated tells Eater it will indeed open this Monday, October 10, and photographer Dina Avila reveals the transformation of the space, formerly home to hip-hop pizzeria P.R.E.A.M., in the photo gallery above. Gone are the vinyl-record wallpaper and framed black-and-white portrait of Tupac, and in their place are stacks of firewood for the pizza oven, an industrial "Associated" sign, and a wild black-and-white portrait of one fine looking werewolf ("his hair was perfect"). For anyone who'd like to compare the new outfit to P.R.E.A.M., just click the link to the Eater Inside.
Associated comes from former P.R.E.A.M. pizza chef Nick Ford and members of the Portland bar group, Lightning Bar Collective (Century, Jackknife, Bye and Bye), and it will serve classic and signature cocktails and a menu of appetizers, pizzas, and tacos, which come in both vegan and meat options. Check out the full menus below.
Associated is located at 2133 SE 11th Ave. The hours will be 3 p.m. to 2 a.m., seven days a week.
