The “Kinda Like a Banh Mi” at OK Omens: $9 chicken liver mousse, pickled veggies, grilled bread
| OK Omens/Official

Traditionally, happy hour meant an hour or so of discounted drinks in the afternoon, usually when people would get off work but before dinner hours and late-night drinking. But the term has evolved, and many bars and restaurants in Portland opt to offer cocktail specials, half-priced wines, and discounted food specials late into the evening, after the more casual bar-goers have returned home.

We’ve rounded up a range of late-night happy hours across Portland, from dive bars to fine dining restaurants, with food specials, drink specials, and both. As usual, these points are arranged geographically, not ranked.

Thirsty for some daytime drink specials? Head to our larger happy hour map for those.

Decked out in all black, Bartini serves a menu of a few dozen “martinis,” which is to say a variety of cocktails made with all manner of “mixers” served in oversized martini stems. Given the variety, there’s sure to be something to please, especially when the voluminous drinks are just $5 after 9:30 p.m. — until midnight on weeknights and 11 p.m. on Sundays. If cheap drinks aren’t enough, the bar also offers all of its small plates on discount, including $4 mash potatoes also served in a martini glass, because that’s just classy.
