Matador NW Portland

With windows opening out onto the busy corner of NW 23rd and Quimby, the Matador is at the epicenter of NW Portland. This is the city's fastest growing and arguably its most exciting neighborhood, bridging the timeless Alphabet Blocks and the burgeoning Slabtown. Located in a former distillery, our NW Portland restaurant and bar has been a destination for nearly a decade. Bright and airy by day and a party scene by night, we offer a premier tequila/mezcal bar, late-night food, and NW Portland's best happy hour.
