Bars in Portland

aka "What's going on Friday night?!"

Good question, y'all!  Well, we've got some motions to run through with the wedding party - rehearsing our fly moves for Saturday and then all breaking bread together as a big happy family!  Once those shenanigans are done, we are likely to be seen out and about.  

Here are some places you're likely to find fellow wedding goers and after 10pm, bonafide wedding PARTY, and who knows, maybe even a bride-or-groom-to-be!  Lynn turns into a pumpkin at midnight for a change, but feel free to keep Bob company!


Rivalries, 10 Cotton Street: a favorite Portland sports bar/watering hole. With over 20 TVs, Rivalries has comfortable seating, excellent appetizers, soups, burgers, sandwiches and entrees, and pitchers and pitchers of your favorite beer. When the Sox are still playing in October, this is definitely the place to watch the game!! (knock on wood)...

Gritty McDuff's, 396 Fore Street:   around the corner from the rehearsal dinner; brew pub; exposed brick; can get sort of crazy crowded on the weekends, but our crew is notorious for "the takeover".

Bull Feeneys, 375 Fore Street: same neighborhood as the above, the heart of the Old Port (look for the Lobsters Love Guiness sign), this two story Irish pub offers dozens of beers on tap, live music and great pub-food.  The Fish&Chips are yummy!

Sebago Brewing Company, 164 Middle Street: also in the heart of the Old Port, a yummy selection of home-brewed beers on tap, and a great selection of appetizers, pub grub, pasta, seafood and burgers.   Oh yeah and POTATO CHEESE NACHOS.
