Dear Friends, Although today is a strange and solemn anniversary, we want to extend our heartfelt gratitude for all your support, enthusiasm, willingness to explore, engaging curiosity, and ongoing faith over the last 13 years. And to the staff coming through our doors who have contributed to the overwhelming sense of family and enhanced our outlook with your whimsy and fervent commitment, we will always be indebted.
As much as we long to be taking advantage of the sunshine and the bountiful produce to make you some of our favorite summer cocktails, we simply can’t justify reopening in the current climate of rising COVID cases in our community. We are unable during these tenuous circumstances to offer anything like a specific date, but we can say it will only be once Multnomah County is comfortably settled in Phase 2 for a couple weeks and our incident rate is moving in the right direction. Our highest priority is, and always will be, the safety of our staff and guests.
We hope the tide will turn in time to take advantage of the outdoor seating we’ve been designing for you. But rest assured, if not, we’ve also implemented every possible safety upgrade inside the bar: an overhaul to the HVAC system, a plexiglass barrier running the full perimeter of the bar, touchless fixtures, sound absorption to reduce high-volume speaking, just to name a few. We look forward to welcoming you back when it feels safe to do so. Until then, stay well.
