Part of the groovy McMenamins group, which runs a number of fun, often historic, gay-friendly neighborhood pubs, restaurants, and hotels around Oregon and Washington, the Bagdad Pub
(3702 S.E. Hawthorne Blvd.
, 503-236-9234) and its adjacent Bagdad Theater movie cinema
is a mainstay in the progressive Hawthorne District
, a great place to sip microbrewered beer, eat simple pastas and pizzas, and mingle with locals.
