The Yukon Tavern is feelin’ the love of our patrons this Valentine’s Day, with more and more great reviews coming. Take a look at some of the things people are saying about Southeast Portland’s classic dive bar.
“A True American-They call it a dive bar?? It’s far from being a dive, it’s great, we had a great time with the friendly locals, and the staff are awesome! They really know how to mix the drinks. We had bar food, which was cooked quickly and very well, and we visited there a lot while on holiday. It is the place to be—with their shuffleboard table, poker nights and various channels on their TV’s they cater for everyone it’s worth a visit.”
-Michelle S., TripAdvisor
“Thedrinks are stiff and cheap. The tater tots are amazing and the atmosphere is completely classic. Every time I’m here I meet people I want to be friends with for life.” #truth
-Megan S., Yelp
“Yukon does it right. Booze is ludicrously cheap here and it is a first rate dive bar. What can you say to a plate of better-than-your-expectations biscuits and gravy for $6.00? Load me up! That’s what you say!”
“A hole in the wall place with a shuffleboard table and poker nights. Comfortable like a pair of your old favorite shoes.”
“Laid back-I thought the Yukon was rad. The bartender was friendly to me and you can’t complain about cheap PBR drafts. Couple the cheap prices with a nice red velvet interior and a good crowd.” -Raincnty, Barfly

Finally, the long wait is over! Super Bowl LIII is coming to television screens all over the world and you can count on the Yukon Tavern to be your Southeast Portland neighborhood Super Bowl LIII headquarters.
Join our football loving fans and feel like you are at the 50-yard line at our bar. You won’t have to miss out on one minute of action between the Los Angeles Rams and the New England Patriots when they take the field in Atlanta at 3:30pm Pacific Time.
The predictions for the game are mixed going in, making for an exciting game. With the Patriot’s previous Super Bowl experience and their powerful offense led by (love ‘em, or hate ‘em) quarterback Tom Brady, and the Ram’s powerful defense that has brought them back from the brink this season, it’s anyone’s game this year.
Sports viewing at our bar is better than being at the game because you’ll stay nice and warm and our bartenders are ready to keep your glass full of your favorite beverage! Bring your friends and sidle up to the bar to cheer on your favorite team while you sip your favorite beer. After the game you can stick around to either celebrate your team’s win, or drown your sorrows in one last pint.

That’s right—one of Hollywood’s best ghost stories is coming to the Yukon Tavern this Tuesday, October 30th!
The 1980 classic The Shining is based on the best-selling book by horror master Stephen King. It was produced and directed by Stanley Kubrick and takes place at the historic Overlook Hotel located in the Colorado Rockies. (With exterior shots of Oregon’s own Timberline Hotel stepping in for the Overlook.)
The movie follows frustrated writer Jack Torrance, played by Jack Nicolson, and his family to the Overlook when he takes a job as the hotel’s winter caretaker. With his ditsy wife and clairvoyant son in tow, they soon find themselves at the mercy of the ghosts that permanently inhabit the hotel. It’s a role that underscored the “on-the-edge” characters that Nicholson became famous for and exhibits the artistic character of Kubrick’s filmmaking style.
The Shining is a favorite of many fans of horror, one of which is the Yukon Tavern’s manager Ashley McGarr, who says, “That movie is so good and so scary—it IS Halloween!”
October is the month to celebrate the ghosts and goblins that hide in the shadows, so don your scariest costumes and gather up all your fiendish friends for a night at the movies. This film is made to freak you out and, between King’s warped storytelling, Kubrick’s artistic filmmaking and Nicholas’s crazed performance, The Shining delivers a frighteningly fun cinematic experience.
Join us on October 30th at 7:20p.m. at the Yukon Tavern for a terrifying trip into the world of Hollywood horror. Come in costume and get a treat of a free well or domestic pint on us! And, don’t worry—our bartenders are not ghosts.
