Portland Dive Bars – The Beta List

Portland Dive Bars – The Beta List

Below is the initial list of possible Portland Dive Bars that Steven and kcisme have collected so far.

They are in the process of visiting each bar on this list. ( nice work, if you can get it!)

If the bar turns out to be a genuine Dive Bar, it will get a profile article here on this website.  It also may be featured in the forthcoming Portland Dive Bar book.

If a bar on this list turns out to sadly, NOT be a Dive Bar,  it will be moved to the “Not a Dive Bar” list – www.portlanddivebars.com/not-a-dive-bar

A Dive Bar You Have To Add to This List!

If you look over this list below and you notice that a Portland Dive Bar has been left off – please let Steven and kcisme know!

You can message them via the Portland Dive Bars Facebook page – www.facebook.com/Portland-Dive-Bars
