About The Gilt Club:
Voluptuous dishes, evolved cocktails and rich décor are hallmarks of Gilt Club. Sumptuous red-leather booths. Expansive chandeliers and gold window drapes. The cosmopolitan supper club has come to Portland. The Gilt Club is all Lauren Bacall and Cary Grant, with a 21st-century edge. The food is as luxe as the décor. Executive Chef Chris Carriker dreams up dishes inspired by Old World traditions that do justice to the exquisite flora and fauna cultivated in the Northwest: duck liver mousse, pheasant sausage, wild mushrooms, Oregon sheep’s milk cheese. The wine director sources wines from around the world in many different styles to offer a broad selection and a wide range of prices. The Gilt Club’s house cocktail selection varies with the season, and most of the drinks are composed with house infused liquor and mixed with fresh juices squeezed to order.
Wearing taffeta may be a bit over the top, but anything goes here at this decadent restaurant that stays open deep into the night on the edge of the Pearl District. Gilt Club offers a lively happy hour, outdoor dining, and serves their full dinner menu from 5pm to 2am, Monday thru Saturday. Reservations can be made by calling 503-222-4458.
