Happy Hour Review: Pine Tavern Happy Hour | Beer & Drink | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Happy Hour Review: Pine Tavern Happy Hour

comment

In a region that continues to experience astronomical growth, finding that shiny new thing in the way of a new restaurant or bar is not too tough. Plenty of places come and go—and then there are the spots that stick around through all the ups and downs. Take the Pine Tavern, open since 1936, when Bend was populated by the loggers and mill workers whose livelihoods depended largely on the glorious Ponderosa pine—the second-most common tree in Oregon.
The walls of the Pine Tavern are wood-paneled, instantly transporting you back to a  time when it wasn’t beer culture and tourism, but forest products that reigned supreme in this area. But since this is the happy hour guide, let’s get down to the happy stuff.

In doing our research for this guide, we conducted a highly scientific poll (Read: we asked a few people what they think) about the places offering the “best” happy hours in Bend. Pine Tavern came up repeatedly, and for good reason. With a slew of yummy food items on offer for $5 or less (including a $4.95 ½ pound burger—yes please!) and a number of drinks on discount, it’s no wonder that the happy hour set comes to this spot in droves.

My crew and I snacked to our heart’s content, drank specialty cocktails and still walked away paying about an Andrew Jackson (soon to be replaced by Harriet Tubman?) each. Another big benefit at Pine Tavern: Multiple happy hours. Sure, the Happy Hour Guide you hold in your hand right now is going to help you suss out what’s what, but it doesn’t hurt when a place has multiple happy hours, even in the same day.



When you’re downtown and you want a quick bite, a happy hour drink or a taste of the old Bend that is still alive and well, this is your spot.
