2.8/5  rDev -31.9%

Henry's is in a large red brick warehouse in the trendy Pearl district, in what used to be Henry Weinhard's brewery. Inside the large space is a chic loft feel with dim lights and a fairly pretentious night club vibe, booths and stool tables, a large projection screen high on the wall, and balcony style 2nd floor that overlooks the bar below . The bar is decent sized and theres a fair amount of seating, plus a 1/2 that has a really upscale billiards room, with it's own mini bar, lounge area and TVs. It is kind of place I imagine a lot of people go for the atmosphere, and are willing to pay a premium to do so. I am not one of those people, but the 100 draft beer list made it somewhat worthwhile. I cannot speak for the bartenders knowledge or service, but in the booths upstairs, it was bad. Our server was an snooty air-head who made a point of acting annoyed at the idea of having to do her job...picture a gum smacking cheerleader from an 80s teen movie...I did not ask her about any beers, but she pretended to love all the ones I tried (I say pretended, because they were disparate styles and not all good). Which was par for the course for the overpriced hipster bars this reminded me of... Anyways, the beer list was pretty impressive, very NW ale heavy, but when in Rome...their other attraction is that for happy hour, instead of discounting the $5+ pints, they offer cheap, pseudo-gourmet bar food. It was OK, although I'd probably prefer cheaper beer. We had the bbq chicken pizza (7/10), seafood cakes (5/10), california roll (8/10) and gorgonzola fries (9/10). Worth checking out, but not a place I'll become a regular at.

Update: I've been back quite a few times over the last few years. Grabbing a seat at the bar is better, as the bartender's are knowledgeable on beer and pretty personable when it's not a total zoo (which is rare). I don't mind paying a premium for their great selection of mostly fresh beers and getting tasty cheap happy hr. food, and there's usually lots of good looking people (for portland) providing eye candy. I'd give it B+, great beer selection and good food, the atmosphere is love or hate depending on what you're looking for. I also like the upstairs billards room, great speak easy men's club feel, but the beer selection generally sucks compared to downstairs, but they usually have at least one 'geeky' craft out of the 3-5 draughts.
