Portland may be stereotyped as being brunch-obsessed, but the city's truest obsession could be happy hour. It's practically a requirement that a bar discount cocktails and food a few hours everyday (yes, that includes Fridays and Saturdays) — so much so that many restaurants have joined in. Why? Because Portland's best happy hours are a great opportunity to sample new or normally out of reach restaurants without breaking the bank. There's also the plain fact that $1 beer and $2 cocktails are awesome.

This regularly updated happy hour map features the most noteworthy, long-running happy hours. Looking for the city's newest and hottest happy hours? Head over to the Portland's Newest Happy Hour Deals map, featuring the best happy hours to hit the city in the past six months. (Note that the points on this map are not ranked. They are organized geographically).
