The swanky Driftwood Room, located off the lobby of the Hotel deLuxe, is a 1950s-era lounge that hasn’t changed all that much in the last 60 years. The mid-century décor is so evocative that it’s easy to imagine crowds from another century smoking and tossing back Martinis at the massive leather stools lining the wavy bar. Staggered wood paneling—both overhead and along the curving walls—remind you that you’re in Portland while the kitschy—yet well-crafted—drinks (Elizabeth Taylor, Sino Evil, Sideburn) bring you back into the modern age. To travel back, order a Manhattan or a Martini, both of which are tops.
