Cocktail Party Planning Camas WA
3223 Northeast Broadway
19 Northwest 5th Avenue
2929 SE Powell Blvd
204 NE 4th Ave
Mill Corner - Twenty dollar cover? Nope. Celebrities? None. Mill Corner is nowhere near the pages of Us Weekly or TMZ, but hey, beer is beer, whiskey is whiskey. A friendly neighborhood bar where you can pretty much wear whatever the hell you want. (But leave the cargo-shorts at home.)
1826 E St
Heller's Lounge - They could have easily filmed a scene from "Sex in the City" here. With its posh décor and sexy, dimly-lit interior, Heller's Lounge makes for a killer date spot. Located at [Address], it's a little classier than the pub down the corner.
Pied Cow Coffeehouse
3244 SE Belmont Street
The Sultan Cafe
1500 NW 18th Ave.
Tony's Hookah Center
9517 Southwest Barbur Boulevard

Smeads Tavern - If you need a place to unwind after another week of mindless TPS reports, Smeads Tavern, located at [Address], might just do the trick. Pretty barebones and without fanfare, but the prices are reasonable and there's no hassle at the door.
Tippy Canoe Bar & Grill
28242 E Historic Columbia Gorge Hwy
Tippy Canoe Bar & Grill - A nice bar on the Sandy River out on the way up the Gorge, with a clientele of people on their way up there.

For mixing you'll need a good variety to make a lot of different recipes. The standards include multiple bottles of Mineral water, cola, ginger ale, club soda, tonic water, lemon/lime sodas and fresh juices (orange, pineapple, lemon, lime and tomato). Don't forget to have lots of ice on hand. If you make your own ice use bottled water so you don't get a chlorine flavour to your drinks.

Finally you will need some things to garnish the drinks to add that special touch. The essentials include cocktail onions, stuffed olives, lemons, limes, oranges, strawberries, celery stalks, Tabasco sauce, maraschino cherries, pineapple...
