We didn't stay long, only had drinks. Apparently it's the hotspot to take a date. Low key vibe, at least when we were there.

I have actually lived in Thailand and The Whiskey Soda (and of course Pok Pok) are the real deal. Northern Thai food is very different than the usual Thai fare which is usually Southern Thai. Northern Thai is spicy, savoury, and very tasty! Enjoy and don't forget to chase it down with a nice cocktail or a beer- you might... More

Pok Poks slightly saucy sister, this bar is the Danni to Kylie Minogue. While rubes line up for Pok Pok, head straight to Whiskey Soda for awesome cocktails, beers, cider and an extensive local whiskey list. Those famous chicken wings are on the menu, along with lots of other beer friendly fare. The service is great, the atmosphere total Thai... More

Ridiculously watered down $11 drinks. Horrible service. Placed an order: half of it came out within 15 minutes; after waiting about 30 minutes for another half, and being pretty much ignored by the waitstaff, I asked the waitress about the time frame. Got a 'it will come out when it is ready' response. Inquired again, turned out the other half... More

I belive it's the same owners as Pok Pok from across the street. Came here because Sunshine Tavern was closing up and we didn't feel like going home. The staff recommended the place to us. Came in for a drink. Good place for Thai food and drinks. It does have a heavy smell of squid but they is also what... More

If you are waiting for a table at Pok Pok, chances are the hostess probably suggested you have a drink and wait at Whiskey Soda. This place (along with Pok Pok) is famous for their chicken wings... the wings are fried (not breaded) and lightly coated in their sweet/spicy sauce. Wings are flavorful, and good finger food when you're hanging... More

Reserved table at Pok Pok and waited it out in the Lounge. We had a round of drinks and tried the two kind of wings. Definitely go for the spicy ones. We had several drinks some better than others and generally had s good time. The music was supposed to be trendy and sound some a soundtrack or something but... More

Friends and I waited here and had drinks while waiting for a table at Pok Pok. The wait was long but worth it and had a great time sitting outside here. I ordered a martini and it was really small. Service was super friendly and I would go back.

We visited while waiting for our table at Pok Pok. Average drinks and service. I wouldn't necessarily recommend coming here as your destination, but it was good to have a place to get a drink while waiting to eat. They also serve food but we didn't eat so can't comment on if it's good or bad.

Actively bad, actually sent food back because we couldn't bring ourselves to eat it, and the waitress forgot half of the other food we ordered..... We just paid, left and drove to NW Portland for something better.

Thank RHDL
