The Sapphire is a great spot with interesting décor, fantastic cocktails, friendly staff, and tasty food. Good for an afternoon stop or late night drink (and everything in-between).

The Sapphire Hotel has a pretty seedy history on the southeast side of Portland. Nothing seedy about the bar, though. This bar is a wonderful, old-time elegant (yet unaffected) place to be seen while imbibing the most imaginative cocktails and nibbling on a fine variety...More

Actually Hawthorne continues – the bend takes you onto SE 50th – so you might miss this little gem. Great cocktails and starters crafted with quality ingredients and served by friendly and attentive staff. We'll be back.

Great winter evening spot with spot-on warming entrees and libations. The french onion soup is to die for and a perfect remedy for a cold. Be sure to have it with an Irish whiskey hot toddy! Oh my friend loves that the bourbon on the...More

Our friend brought us to Sapphire Bar for a late night drink while we were visiting Portland. I thought the atmosphere and drink selection was great. If you're a fan of mixed drinks, this is a must when you're in Portland.
