Hey Love | 920 E. Burnside St.

Get lost in a tropical oasis at Hey Love. This restaurant + lounge inside the Jupiter NEXT Hotel has the vintage-jungle vibe dialed in — with plants tucked into just about every available space.  

Tusk | 2448 E. Burnside St.

Middle Eastern fare, craft cocktails, and a trendy vibe? Count us in. Tusk is all about lighting — so if you’re a sucker for bright, natural tones + a soft color palette that will complement your dreamy IG feed, this is the place for you. 

Bible Club PDX | 6716 SE 16th Ave.
📸: @cocktailsaway

Don’t let the name fool you — you won’t find any Sunday services here. Bible Club is a speakeasy nestled inside an old house in the Sellwood neighborhood. Snap a selfie at the bar (or from anywhere in the joint, really) and your followers will think you’ve time-traveled to pre-Prohibition times. Amen to that.

Departure | The Nines, 525 SW Morrison St.
📸: @event_nerdz

Your face + the Portland skyline = très chic. Departure is an upscale pan-Asian restaurant that sits on the 15th floor of The Nines Hotel in downtown Portland. The indoor dining area and bar are perfectly picture-worthy, but it’s the views from the outdoor patio that you’re really here for. 

Kachka | 960 SE 11th Ave.

The colorful, Soviet-era decor inside what Bon Appetit calls a “homey incarnation of Moscow-on-the-Willamette” will make your photos pop. Kachka’s splashy space is the perfect backdrop for anyone who enjoys standing out

Lechon | 113 SW Naito Pkwy
📸: @kelsea.ate

Lechon’s globally-inspired menu is as full + flavorful as its atmosphere. Snap a photo while dining outside in the shadow of scalloped arches set into a historic brick building, or sit inside for views of multiple saltwater aquariums full of jellyfish, coral, and exotic fish.  

Sapphire Hotel | 5008 SE Hawthorne Blvd.
📸: @perfectfooddays

Do you live for a dark, sultry + romantic mood? The Sapphire Hotel is tucked into what was once the lobby of an old hotel frequented by sailors, wandering artists, and ladies of the night. From the heavy velvet curtains to the candlelit tables, this date-night destination is picture-perfect. 

Quaintrelle | 2032 SE Clinton St.
📸: @aubrie.legault

Quaintrelle’s new location strikes a balance between moody atmosphere + natural lighting. Take a photo in front of the ultra-trendy bar where plants, gilded details + gorgeous wallpaper meet to provide a whimsical backdrop

Oma’s Hideaway | 3131 SE Division St.
📸: @ankitaoutofoffice

Watch the likes roll in after you post a selfie in front of the custom wallpaper designed by @kateblairstone at Oma’s Hideaway. Or work an angle from in front of the cut-glass bar

Wyrd | 4515 SE 41st Ave.
📸: @the_0g_lp

Wyrd (pronounced “weird”) is a medieval-themed mead hall + leather shop where cosplay garb is encouraged (but not required). Trick your friends into thinking you were cast in “The Witcher” by posting a photo here. Need we say more?
