Awesome. A friend and myself were in town with the mission of hitting 17 places in 4 days and we were successful. Baileys's became our home base to end the night. Regarding food they actually have a deal with the Mexican place next door. They will deliver to you in case you find yourself unable to walk. If you like Mexican food do yourself a favor I would recommend trying the place even if they didn't have the convenient deal with Bailey's. Geoff the owner is a very cordial host be sure to support him if you find yourself in Portland.

I have been meaning to review Bailey's for a while now. This is my favorite bar in Portland.

Bailey's has an open and bright atmosphere. They have no TV but they have music playing softly in the background.

All the servers there in particular Scott are great. They know a bunch about the beer they are serving and they are honest. I remember A couple times when ordering a glass or buying a bottle where I was discouraged because the servers did not think it was worth the price or that it was not a very good beer.

Bailey's has 20 taps that are constantly rotating. They have good relationships with local breweries and always get limited beers. They price their prices on the beer fairly. I always find at least 15 beers I want to try when I go to Baileys. Furthermore on Mondays they have firkins of local beer. Bailey's gets beers from all over the country but most of their beer comes from Oregon.

Overall a great bar that is close to the MAX station. If you are visiting Portland going to Bailey's is a must.

Something about this place just really impressed me...

This is the most minimalist beer bar I've ever been to. The decor is very simple, no beer signage that I saw, sort of reminded me of a beerbar from the future.

That being said, it offered up some amazing beers and everything was super clean and top quality service.

All i can say is that this place is just amazing. Its so simple and yet so great. If you want to go to a beerbar that is simply all about the beer, go here.

Also, they have Beeropoly that you can play while drinking a great beer. Perfect for a rainy day.

I frequent Baileys, usually 1-2 times a week. Tap list is always rotating and they update the changes on the tap list via twitter, which makes the website an everyday check for me to see what is new. Baileys also offers bottles for sale at a very competitive price, and you can take them to go for 2-3 dollars less then the price listed. I believe they offer the best prices of any bar in the Portland area as well. Attractive bar always clean. Music plays at nice volume level so it never requires yelling your conversation at your partner/friends. Music is also quite diverse, Hip-Hop, Folk, Rock, Jazz,....Employees are great, ready to give you advice and they will give you their honest opinion on beers. No food, but you can get pretty good Mexican food across the street (Santeria) and they'll deliver the food to you. Baileys is a real treat, one of the best bars I have ever been to.
