New Taproom Cometh

We’ll hold back from sharing too many details, as plans are still in the works, but since it’s now public information, we thought we’d delight you all with news of a taproom-to-be on Foster (at SE 69h).

And with it, too, means the gap between the “Heart of Foster” and the Portland Mercado closes a little, as this stretch will be a little less desolate and a tad more vibrant.

A recent liquor license application for 6913 SE Foster shows a taproom serving beer and wine is in the works next to SMART Collective and I Heart Retro. That’s quite a trio.

And with proposals for a mixed-use development on the vacant lot just west of the Mercado, as well as the recently available Save-A-Lot space and neighboring laundromat across the street—remember, the Save-A-Lot lease is expiring today—perhaps Foster’s commercial core will become a little more continuous and vibrant.

As for the taproom, again, we’re going to be stingy on details, but the liquor license does say there will be shuffle board and ping-pong at the former martial arts studio and Russian tea house (cum video store). There’s a sense that this place will be family friendly, too.

Stay tuned…

    +1 billion for a family friendly dinner/drinking spot (at least until 9.00!)
