Explorations in Mixology Cocktails Drinking

Portland Bar Review: Whiskey Soda Lounge

Technically a separate establishment, we have always thought of the Whiskey Soda Lounge as the waiting room for Pok Pok. They share a similar drink menu and a handful of small bites (the chicken wings are amazing) and are obviously affiliated. You can also order a frozen beer which is fun. They take a bottle of beer and deep-freeze it using a swirling contraption designed to turn beer into a slushy. Beer with a straw is a lot more fun than it sounds, but they also have honest cocktails or flights of whiskey if you prefer.

One could easily spend more than an hour and a half waiting for a table at Pok Pok. Thankfully, you will enjoy that time here at the soda lounge. With plenty of seating and a helpful staff that will let you know when your table is ready, you can happily sip drinks and order appetizers to help you pass the time.
