Can you dig a Beatles reference and/or anything pony related? Portland’s newest bar — Dig a Pony — is open for business. Taking over the old Niki’s Restaurant space on the corner of SE Grand & Morrison, DAP (Dig a Pony) Portland has a vintage-y, cozy feel. Cocktails are in the $7-9 range, and worth it.

Hopefully Dig a Pony can keep the current charming bartenders and staff, who are refreshingly sans-attitude/apathy.

Dig a Pony

Where: 736 SE Grand Avenue, Portland, OR 97214
When: Mon – Sun: 3pm – 2:30am

History: In the 1920?s, this space originally housed a pharmacy called Potter’s Drug Company. DAP posted the following photograph on their blog of the old SE Grand/Morrison corner, complete with old Portland streetcar tracks and a billboard for the 1929 Chevrolet Series AC International boasting to be “A Six in the price range of the Four.” Pretty cool.
