Tel: 503 226 3394's insider take:

Bluehour isn't exactly the sort of spot you'd expect to find in Portland. The minimalist high-ceiling room is punctuated by massive floral arrangements; sparkling mirrors and high windows create a glittery effect; and a bar lined with shiny liquor bottles is set up along one wall, complete with white leather chairs and ottomans for prime see-and-be-seen lounging. This is Portland at its most trendy, and it attracts a fashionable young crowd who come to drink and socialize, as well as older couples looking for a New York–style night out. The food here is excellent—heirloom tomato and goat cheese salad, seared salmon in a red wine glaze, berry panna cotta—but the real draw is the bar, which starts hopping after work and continues late into the night.

Open Mondays through Fridays 11:30 am to midnight, Saturdays 5 pm to 1 am, and Sundays 10 am to 9 pm.
