Especially if you’re a woman, just head to your nearest (or favorite) strip club.Your date will be primed, and because it’s Portland, you’re always roughly five blocks from one.And you might discover this person in a variety of new ways, from work parties to a night swiping through Tinder while marathoning a show on Netflix.In any case, it can be hard to select the appropriate venue for the level of date you want, so we’ve put together this list to help.Even if you buy all of your date’s drinks and don’t hit it off, you’ve only spent around plus tip, the price of a cocktail anywhere else.Did you know Portland has both the country’s largest and smallest parks within city limits?Like strip clubs, there’s one in every neighborhood, so you’re not going to be far from one of your haunts.
You don’t have to go out to wine country to taste wines: there are plenty of excellent wine bars and restaurants in town that having tastings.
Don’t expect to have a picnic in the small one, but a picnic date in any of our others is perfect for an initial meetup. It’s illegal to drink in Portland parks, so we’re absolutely not suggesting you grab a bottle of wine or some cans of Portland Sangria for your date.
Dates don’t have to have to be booze-fueled, and Portland still has some of the best coffee in the country.
Think Teardrop, Interurban, Bit House Saloon (they have a cocktail called Tinder Fuel, after all), or The Knock Back.
Aalto Lounge has the best happy hour in the city, featuring cocktails.
