Matador NW Portland

With its windows opening out onto the busy corner of NW 23rd and Quimby, the Matador is at the epicenter of Portland's fastest growing and arguably its most exciting neighborhood, seamlessly bridging the timeless Alphabet Blocks and the burgeoning and vibrant Slabtown. Located in a former distillery, the NW Portland Matador has been a destination for nearly a decade. Bright and airy by day and a party scene by night, the restaurant offers the Rose City a premier tequila/mezcal bar, and a happy hour not to be missed.
