Two Happy Hours at the Yukon Tavern in Southeast Portland!

At the Yukon Tavern we love Happy Hour. In fact, we love Happy Hour so much we have two every single day of the week from 3-7:30pm and 10pm to close!


Happy Hour makes us happy. It’s the witching hour at a bar, when people stop in after a long day and order up their favorite beer, cider, wine or cocktail and one of the delicious treats from our Happy Hour menu.

During our two Happy Hours we not only have food at discounted prices—we have drinks at amazing prices, too, like Canada’s Labatt Draft, Domestic Drafts and Micro Drafts for under a dollar! If that doesn’t put a smile on your face, nothing will.


Our kitchen staff is ready to turn any frown upside down with hot and tasty meal baskets from our Happy Hour menu. Grab a Hebrew National Hot Dog for $2 and add a basket of our famous Yukon Gold Fries for $3 to go with it. Or, how about giving our Fried Shrimp ($6) and Jalepeno Poppers ($4) a try? Our Happy Hour menu is sure to satisfy.


The Yukon Tavern is committed to being Sellwood-Moreland’s favorite neighborhood bar, and hosting two Happy Hours for our customers is our proof of that promise.


The next time you are looking to get happy plan to stop in at the Yukon Tavern on SE Milwaukee Avenue during our two Happy Hours (3-7:30pm and 10pm to close) and let us put a smile on your face with our Happy Hour food and drink menu!

Put Your Pipes to the Test at the Yukon Tavern


yukon-karaokeDon’t settle for singing in the shower when you can showcase your musical talents in front of all your friends at the Yukon Tavern’s Karaoke Night this Wednesday, February 15th at 8pm!

The stage will be ready for you, with a large selection of music to choose from. From pop to country, you’ll be able to limber up your vocal chords and let that voice you’ve hidden from the public shine through. And, it’s not only serious singing we’ll be showcasing that night. There’s plenty of room on our agenda to include the fun hits sung by our goofball friends, as well.

Our neighborhood bar is a favorite among people who love to share their talents in a fun, informal style, and the perfect venue for our newest event, Karaoke Night! We’re expecting a fun crowd who isn’t afraid to get up on stage and show us what they’ve got.


Need a glass of little liquid bravery before you hit the stage? Our friendly bartenders will serve up your favorite beer, cider, wine, or cocktail to loosen you up so you can give us your best performance.


If your skills are a bit more competitive in nature we’ve got you covered, too. Our pool table, video poker and Keno, and the longest tabletop shuffleboard in town are there to keep you busy, too. There’s something for everyone at the Yukon!

Brrr! It’s Cold Out There!

Has anyone else gotten tired of this deep freeze we’re living in? I know I have, so I think I’m just going to ride out the rest of week inside my favorite neighborhood bar, Southeast Portland’s Yukon Tavern.

2016-06-27 03.57.51

I’ll order a beer and find a spot at the bar. Maybe there’ll be a game on. The Yukon’s got TVs placed around the bar so everyone can be front and center for NFL playoff games going on this month.


There’s always something happening at the Yukon. Open Mic Nights, Texas Hold ‘em, Geeks Who Drink, Vine and Pallet painting, and free pool on Sundays. Everyone can find something they love all week long.


According to rumors, the Yukon has the longest shuffleboard table in Portland and the challenge to drink a beer before your launched puck stops at the other end of the table is one I can’t resist!

I always find a few friends at the Yukon Tavern. The neighborhood has changed over the last few years and the Yukon has changed right along with it, without losing the charm of a typical neighborhood bar. The new owners, Rainer and Jon, have updated the interior and the menu, with great bar food standards and a line of hot dogs that you won’t find anywhere else in Portland.

If you find yourself getting overwhelmed by too much weather and you want to break out of the confines of your home for a day, drive down Milwaukee Avenue in Southeast Portland and look for the Yukon’s iconic neon sign. Our doors will be open and our kitchen and bar will be well stocked to get you through the winter blues, alongside your friends in the friendliest neighborhood bar in Sellwood!

Make Everyone’s Holiday Jolly with a Yukon Tavern Gift Card

There’s only a few days left before Christmas and I’m well on my way to crossing off every item on my holiday gift list. Of course, there’s always a couple that are harder to buy for—the one who “already has everything they could possibly want” or the picky characters—and stocking stuffers, stocking stuffers, stocking stuffers!

Yukon - Neon Sign

When I’m looking for the perfect gift that I know everyone will love, I like to give them the gift of good food, friendly people, and great times at the Yukon Tavern, Sellwood-West Moreland’s favorite neighborhood bar. And this year when you purchase a $25 gift card we’ll give you a gift of a $5 gift card that you can use at the Yukon, too!

Treat your friends and family to a fun night out with a gift certificate from the Yukon Tavern. We are known throughout Southeast Portland for our many weekly and monthly events. Geeks Who Drink will test your bar trivia IQ and Vine, while Vine and Pallet’s weekly art classes will test your creativity. You can even test your luck at our weekly Texas Hold ‘em games or at Oregon Lottery Keno and video poker machines.

Yukon - Outdoor Seating2

For those who love to just sit back and have beer in a nice and easy setting, gift your Christmas pal to a gift certificate they can use to try out a few of the Pacific Northwest’s best craft beers, top shelf liqueurs, ciders and wines.


Who doesn’t love good pub grub? Nobody, that’s who. With a Yukon Gift Card the receiver won’t be getting just one present, but an entire menu filled with great choices like our Chicago Dog with sport peppers, Buffalo Chicken Burger, and BBQ Pork Sliders. And, our daily specials are guaranteed to put the “happy” back into their holidays!


As a gift to you, we’re offering a $5 gift certificate for every $25 gift certificate you purchase for someone else. So, this year, give a gift that keeps on giving; a gift card from the Yukon Tavern!
