  • The Multnomah Whiskey Library has nursed long lines and wait times since day one. The crowds are flocking for the gorgeously appointed room and the some-1,500 bottles of booze that line the walls.
  • I've been to bars the world over, and very few can match this selection, service, and ambiance. Be prepared to wait or make a reservation. It's worth it. Very worth it.
  • Library without books
  • You can get half-pours (flight style) if you'd prefer to taste several spirits. After all, the more the merrier!
  • Thousands of bottles of whiskey and other spirits, plus cocktails served from custom bar carts.
  • Get on the list, head across the street to Tasty & Alder for dinner and your seat should be ready when you're done.
  • This temple of whiskey is worth the wait, for both rare spirits and well-made cocktails.
  • Never ever going back. Arrogant pricks.
  • Place looks amazing inside, but I was unfortunately not able to try any whiskies: a 1 hour wait at 6:45 on a Wednesday!
  • Great bartenders, dizzying selection of whiskey, cozy atmosphere
  • It something the wait for a neat experience complete with table-side drink creations!
  • Amazing service, atmosphere, music, and drinks. I ordered a rye old fashion and they made it for me right by my seat! This place is awesome, absolutely will come back and bring all my friends.
  • Food is awesome! I had the bison steak. The waiters know their stuff.
  • 1000 bottles and long waits. The cart service is a nice addition, but i expect more of the cocktails
  • If the wait is long the main floor bar is great too.
  • Best wisky bar in th world!!! Try the aged rib-eye
  • Decoration is fantastic!
  • talk to the bartenders! They have so much knowledge
  • Even if you just grab a drink downstairs in the Green Room, sneak a peek of the whiskey library upstairs!
