Portland’s New Century Bar

Century Sports Bar on SE Sandy in Portland

Century Sports Bar on SE Sandy in Portland

Spending some time in South East Portland, we visited the recently opened Century Bar on Sandy Boulevard. Although new, and only a bit after its 3:00 pm opening, there were already people in the two outdoor areas. As we were there, several other patrons entered. One outdoor area is on the main level. Tables and chairs are set up outdoors as well as in a covered area. A stairway leads to another outdoor area above that on the first floor. On this second level, one can view some of Portland’s skyline.It is a great spot to get a sense of the city.

Back inside the main part of the bar offers a stadium feeling, with stadium seating on different levels. We noticed that the wood used for the benches is much nicer than that in stadiums. The seating area and other decor gives a nice sense of sophistication. Since we wanted to get the sports experience, we selected the middle level in the stadium seating area in front of a large screen showing the Olympic mens basketball preliminary game between the United States and China. There are several screens in the U-shaped stadium seating area providing a great view from wherever you are seating. Generally the will of the patrons decides what game is viewed, although a different game can be viewed on each screen.


Central to the seating area is the back lit bar. The back lighting highlights the multi-colors of the difference spirits. There is also seating in front of the bar in this area. Overhead two large ceiling lights adds a nice touch.

072616cI ordered a Neighborhood Kid, served in a mason jar, made with Evan Williams bourbon, commissary marionberry syrup, lemon and ginger-ale. It was pink with red hue. It was fruity on the onset followed by bourbon flavor. Kathy had a Sweet Margarita with sweet marionberry syrup, lime slice and juice and Tequila. The cocktail was slightly sweet and refreshing. Kathy commented, “The more I drink the better it gets.”

The Century Bar is going to become a favorite PDX spot for the neighborhood and other Portlanders. If visiting the area drop by. Winter or summer this sports bar is likely to have great attendance. Check out their website for events.
