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.

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 - A nice bar on the Sandy River out on the way up the Gorge, with a clientele of people on their way up there.

This will cause the rest of the alcohol to ignite. Be careful, flames can jump up qu...
