The Yukon Tavern has become Southeast Portland’s go-to bar for delicious meals for many reasons. Our customers enjoy the easy going feeling they find in our bar and the many fun events that are held every week, but one of the reasons they tell us they always return to the Yukon is the yummy pub grub they find on our menu.
A favorite menu item is our 100% beef Hebrew National hot dog. It’s true! All day on Saturday our kitchen turns out delicious all-beef hot dogs to our customers for only $1!
But don’t let the price fool you—even though we discounted it, this hand-held dish still retains all the flavor you’d expect from high-quality meat. And, if a spicier version is what you long for, will give it a spicy edge for just one dollar more by adding a thick layer of chili.
Our Sausage Saturdays are made for those who crave the taste of a great hot dog so much they want it hot, fresh and easy to order at their nearby neighborhood bar. Our hot dog special runs every Saturday, year-round, so even on rainy Portland days you can still enjoy the great taste of a Hebrew National all beef hot dog. They’re so good you won’t stop at one, and at just $1 per hot dog you can order as many as you it takes to satisfy your craving and still have enough money left over for a few of our great tasting beers.
Visit the Yukon Tavern on Sausage Saturday to enjoy the great taste of an Hebrew National 100% all-beef hot dog! Just look for the bright neon sign that hangs over our tavern on Milwaukee Avenue in Southeast Portland. We’ve got delicious food and frothy, cold beer, and don’t forget to order up a side of our famous tots, too!
Tina McDaniels and her mobile art studio, Vine and Pallet, are back to lead us through another afternoon of artistic expression at the Yukon Tavern on Sunday, February 25th. Every time Tina McDaniel brings her studio to the Yukon we know we’ll be enjoying a relaxing three hours of art instruction as she entertains us with stories of inspiration. Tina has been painting all her life and has passed on her knowledge to students through formal and informal instruction, but no need to worry about experience or skill with Vine and Pallet! Just bring along your “can do” attitude and you’ll be taking home your very own masterpiece at the event’s conclusion.
Vine and Pallet will have all the supplies ready for you to create your own masterpiece, all you have to do is show up ready to paint. While you’re here, why not order up a great meal from the Yukon’s kitchen or a drink from our bar. Painting with Tina is always a fun social event, so join in on the party.
Unlike other mobile art studios, Vine and Pallet strives to bring out the unique inner artist in you. Don’t expect a “paint by numbers” approach with this instructor. Tina is interested in helping you develop your own expressive style that you can develop over time, refining your vision and opening the channel to endless inspiration. Each painting will different with the artists’ own interpretation being put on display, rather than a paint by numbers, “one size fits all” tactic.
Come out to the Yukon Tavern in Southeast Portland on Saturday, February 25th at 3pm to paint with Tina McDaniel of Vine and Pallet!
UPDATE: Due to the weather, we have rescheduled Suds & Cinema for Tuesday, February, 27 at 7:20pm.
If you’ve got a life preserver handy you may want to bring it to the next Yukon Tavern “Suds & Cinema” for their showing of Orca on Tuesday, February 20th.
This 1977 cult classic was inspired by the blockbuster Jaws but it features an even larger threat in the form of a killer whale. This mammal with murderous instincts is on a mission to avenge the death of his family by the hands of a local fisherman, played by acclaimed actor Richard Harris, along with his sultry side-kick Bo Derek.
When Harris’s character accidently kills the female companion and their child, an orca takes on his village, going after the local fishing economic structure—this whale thinks like a vengeful businessman and doesn’t mess around when going in for the kill. The movie has a good balance of competent filmmaking and camp and is backed up with a musical score from Ennio Maricone who created the iconic soundtrack from “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.”
Enjoy the movie with a fish and chips basket from the Yukon kitchen and a Guinness from our bar and get your own salty sailor vibe on as you watch man’s marine nemesis go after the fishing industry of a small coastal town. Our bar is a great port to pull into when you want to relax with friends and you may even walk away with the Yukon movie poster for Orca, created by graphic artist Andy Vanderbilt.
Join us at the Yukon Tavern in Southeast Portland on Tuesday, February 20th at 7:20pm for Orca.
Trivia is back at the Yukon Tavern with Last Call Trivia!
A new challenge called Last Call Trivia has come to the Yukon and it’s taking no prisoners when it comes to calling out the smartest player of useless knowledge.
During each round, players have the opportunity to wager points with each of their answers. For example, in the first half of a trivia game, you can wager 1, 3, or 6 points, and because each wager can be used only once, players make their choice based on the amount of confidence they have in your answer. This wagering system allows players to use strategy, along with intelligence during the trivia game.
A theme round is announced after the 3rd question and before the bonus question, and if a player guesses correctly they can acquire an additional two points. But everyone can guess as often as they like without a penalty. The game is free to all players and is hosted by Quizmaster Ian, who will lead us through all the pop culture, history, music, television, movies, and current events questions of the night, all with a big dose of humor and with his own unique playlist playing as we search for the answers to his quizzy questions.
Teams are comprised of one to eight players and the game lasts about two hours. Just enough time to enjoy a juicy burger from our kitchen and your favorite beer from the bar.
Show your friends who is the baddest trivia hombre in Southeast Portland! Come out to the Yukon Tavern every Monday night at 7pm for Last Call Trivia.

Thanksgiving is here and for many people that means stress and annoying relatives. If this is what you’ll be dealing with this Thanksgiving we’d like to invite you to the Yukon Tavern, where you’ll find friends, food, and an All Day Happy Hour–we even have a turkey for you!
Whiskey lovers rejoice! Your holiday has arrived and we are serving up Wild Turkey just for you. It’s an American tradition—Wild Turkey Bourbon contains notes of sweet vanilla, pear, and hints of spice and finishes with a flavor that is full and rich, whether enjoyed straight or with a mixer. Wild Turkey was originally crafted by Kentucky Bourbon Hall-of-Famer Eddie Russell and continues to be aged in American White Oak barrels with deepest, No. 4 “alligator” char.
Order up a shot of Wild Turkey, then fill your table with our version of the perfect Thanksgiving dinner. Dive right into an entrée from our kitchen and enjoy a juicy burger or a Hebrew National 100% beef hot dog smothered with piping hot chili. Get a side of Yukon Gold fries or tater tots to go with it and you’ve got a meal that’s better than a dried out old bird.
Who needs a La-z-boy? Hang out at our bar after the meal to relax in front of the TV to watch a football game with friends, a beer and a bowl of popcorn to munch on. We’ll be playing the day’s best games.
The Yukon Tavern is stretching out our two Happy Hours to cover the entire day so, if you’re looking for an escape this Thanksgiving, stop by the Yukon Tavern on Milwaukee Avenue in Southeast Portland. We’ve got everything a Thanksgiving feast can offer, without the annoying relatives!
