The Porter Hotel’s Rooftop Bar Will Introduce New Programming with Emphasis On Champagne, Cava, Prosecco and More
Portland, Ore. (July 5, 2018) – xport bar & lounge, the rooftop bar at the new The Porter hotel in downtown Portland, will launch a new Bubbles Program, including the introduction of a dedicated Bubbles Bar at the north end of the 16th-story space.
“xport was designed with the intention that our guests would use the space as a destination to celebrate. It’s this very spirit that inspired our desire to feature sparkling wines and champagne from around the world to pair with life’s special events,” said Shannon Orr, beverage manager for The Porter.
The debut of this new lineup will include a Bubbles Series, which will take place on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 p.m. through 9:00 p.m., highlighting everything from local sparkling wines to renowned champagne producers. xport will focus on a different producer each week, sharing special deals on unique wines that guests might not normally have the opportunity to enjoy as a flight or by the glass. The first four courses in the Bubbles Series include:
July 11: Veuve Clicquot
July 18: Ruinart
July 25: Moët & Chandon
Aug. 1: Dom Pérignon
“We’re proud to kick-off our event with Veuve Clicquot, and to share special vintages that aren’t often shown,” continued Orr. “I am proud of the bubbles we will be serving, but I am just as excited about the food that executive chef AJ Voytko and chef de cuisine Michael Benson are preparing to accompany these delicious wines. Our guests will enjoy lush seafood towers, premium caviar and the perfect oyster selections.”
