While not exactly a secret, like the speakeasy’s of yore, Bramhall is a hideaway where you can forget the outside world completely and focus on what’s important – having a good time.
Descending the front steps and entering Bramhall is an all-immersive experience. Even during the late afternoon this brick and stone lined chamber is lit primarily with candles and dim sconces with the only natural light sneaking its way in through antique stained glass windows. It’s obvious why Scofflaws favored this sanctuary during the days of prohibition imparting a sense that Bramhall might still be standing long after the end of the world.
In its second incarnation, the newly renovated Bramhall offers not only a thought-provoking cocktail selection but also one of the city’s largest collections of bourbon, scotch, and rum. Our wine and beer list is diverse and affordable, as is our imaginative comfort food that is essential in forming the all-important base for a long night of indulgence.
Ensconced in one of Portland’s most historic neighborhoods, Bramhall bridges the gap between many generations, conjuring up nostalgia for the way it used to be and surprising those that find themselves in its subterranean chambers for the very first time.
A rich, enjoyable drinking experience awaits you.
