This is my favorite bar in Portland. Atmosphere is a nice mix of urban hipster loft yet still has a comfy vibe where you needn't feel anything but relaxed...a few different sized tables, some sofas in a living room type area up front, and about 15 bar stools.
Quality of the drinks is top notch. All 20 taps rotate frequently and are strictly NW, mainly locals, with a great seasonal variety. A small but well choose selection of bottles (mostly bigger sized) and a few local wines, as well as french press coffee.
Service is great, geoff the owner/bartender is super nice and knowledgeable on the beers. I applaud him for ditching the career and opening a place like this and am always happy to support it.
Food is just cheese/chocolates/olives, I've had all but the chocolate, and it's a nice little selection of good local stuff.
Price is pretty good, impy pints and great deal on 5 x 4 oz samplers if you're feeling tempted to try the many beers on the menu that day that you probably haven't had before. My wife's not into beer bars, but always enjoys coming down here for some relaxed conversation and good drink.

I travel to Portland for business very often, and I always spend at least one night at Bailey's. The true rotating taps, focus on the unusual and nano brews, and knowledgeable staff make it a great place to be. It does get crowded later in the week, so be fore-warned. I also recommend getting dinner from Santeria's brought over.

Visiting Portland from San francisco I stopped by Bailey's on an early spring week-night. I was initially really excited for this place and intrigued by the electronic menu. The menu lists the beers, ABV, style of glass poured, and maybe how much beer was left in the keg? The selection is mainly awesome beers from around Oregon, the definition of a cool local spot to me serves top local beers, so this hits the mark. The service was the only problem, I maybe got unlucky but a specific bartender was a rude wanna-be hipster who poured me the wrong beer on accident and then refused to replace it with the right one. I'll be back.

Very friendly folks, prices were dirt cheap compared to what I'm used to (I live in Oklahoma), nice little outdoor seating with great people watching. Was impressed with the outstanding local selection and the bottles. This place was one of the highlights of my recent vacation to the Northwest, and I will return.
