San Simón Open Downtown | Chow | 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.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

San Simón Open Downtown

“Sophisticated debauchery” in downtown Bend



Looking for some “sophisticated debauchery” in downtown Bend? San Simón aims to deliver. The owners of the new bar, now open in Tin Pan Alley, have transformed the space formerly occupied by Lone Pine Coffee Roasters into a lavish space that feels like a hidden speakeasy.

Named after the liquor-drinking, chain-smoking Mayan saint, San Simón, the space was opened by two brothers from Wisconsin (really nice guys who let us tap their power for a Best of Central Oregon shoot outside their space this summer).

On top of delightful cocktails, you’ll find a shrine for San Simón himself inside the bar.
