Christmas is right around the corner! Can you believe it?
We know that not everyone likes to cook a huge meal for Christmas that’s why in this article we will share with you the best places to have dinner in Portland Oregon on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.
Best Places To Have Christmas Dinner In Portland
1. McMenamins Kennedy School
5736 NE 33rd Ave
Portland, OR 97211
The vintage Kennedy School building, with its Persian rugs and glass lanterns, will be fully open for the holiday. Each of its many bars and restaurants will be serving food and drinks throughout the day, with Christmas movies playing at the theater.
2. Radio Room
1101 NE Alberta St
Portland, OR 97211
The perennially open Radio Room is throwing an all-day Christmas celebration again this year. The bar will have a dinner menu running from its 9 a.m. opening until sold out—when it will switch to a happy hour menu—as well as a special brunch menu running from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. A limited amount of reservations will be accepted by calling (503) 287-2346, but most of the seats will be reserved for walk-ins, and guests can dine in the spacious interior or out on the heated patios.
4237 N Mississippi Ave
Portland, OR 97217
Nothing says Christmas like beer and sausage, at least if you’re German. Prost, the popular German tap-house, is open for the holiday for those looking to escape with a crisp pint of lager. There won’t be much in the way of specials, but plenty of holiday cheer to be had.
4057 N Mississippi Ave
Portland, OR 97227
The homey, hardwood-filled bar and restaurant Interurban will open for Christmas a few hours later than normal at 5 p.m. The bar will likely be cooking up a few rustic dinner specials, but nothing has been finalized at this point. Still, it’s a nice, warm bar to spend a holiday in, whether with some friends or by oneself for a quiet dinner and/or drink.
5. Bantam Tavern
922 NW 21st Ave
Portland, OR 97209
Interurban’s little sibling bar in the Alphabet District, the cozy, brick-walled bar Bantam Tavern will similarly be open. Like Interurban, don’t expect a special Christmas menu, just an offer of respite from the cold weather and holiday madness.
