In the heart of Southeast, ChefStable & Lightning Bar Collective have partnered to bring Portland its new favorite bar, Associated. With a reclaimed worn wood backdrop, warm lighting, oil paintings of famed Hollywood actors, the space evokes a feeling of years past that will put anyone at ease. Friendly bartenders invite patrons to pull up a stool to the 30 seat copper bar and share a story or two, or opt for the long communal table to connect with friends. Associated's kitchen brings beloved bar food classics to a higher taste, a welcome addition to Portland's late night scene. Latin and Italian flavors meet in Chef Nicholas Ford's wood fired oven, with offerings of neapolitan pizzas and unique tacos, amongst other small plates. A playful cocktail menu compliments the hearty food with unique riffs on classics, some served in 32 oz. mason jars or topped with La Croix. In this cozy space, you can drink and eat the night away with the neighborhood. Cheers to the spirit of Portland.
