It’s Not Your Daddy’s Jukebox

No bar is complete without music. Rousing beats from a brightly lit jukebox brought people to the floor in the ‘50s and they’re still doing it today at the Yukon Tavern. 


Our NW Amusements digital jukebox holds all your favorite rock, pop, rap, hip-hop, and country hits, along with a smaller number of videos that are shown on the big screen TV. These songs are regularly updated so that you can listen to everything from the goldie-oldies rock-a-billy, to classic rock hits from Led Zepplin, or you can even let the “DJ” spin the latest Beyonce hit.


Music can be easily ordered through an app on your phone, by calling a number on a screen, or by using credit card. It’s so easy; it’s hard to stop at just one!


At the Yukon, we know that music is essential to get the party started. The beats, the background music, the shared experience of getting into a brand new song; all this brings people together inside our tavern. So, don’t feel alone if you want to break out in a dance—just grab a partner and get your groove on!

The Yukon Tavern has been a staple of the Southwest Portland bar scene for nearly a century, and with each decade they’ve opened their doors to customers with a friendly and welcoming environment. That tradition continues today, in part through the music that comes from our hi-tech jukebox. Stop in tonight to listen to your favorite music and enjoy a beer with your Sellwood-West Moreland friends and the people of the Yukon Tavern!

Our black sweatshirt will wrap you in warmth and protect you from the elements as you make your way out the door to join your friends at our bar.

The Yukon Tavern sweatshirt makes a great gift for any of our faithful patrons. It is both practical and shows off one of their favorite home-away-from-home havens.

Come Watch Super Bowl LI with Us at the Yukon Tavern

For football fans everywhere, this Sunday is the culmination of a season of highs and lows, excitement and disappointment, and lots and lots of action. At the Yukon Tavern we’re going tailgating the last big game of the year with all our Sellwood neighborhood friends.

greeley-super-bowlThis Sunday, the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons, the NFL’s two best teams, will take to the field in Houston to see who gets the Super Bowl LI championship ring. Both teams have steamrolled the competition on their way to the top, led by star quarterbacks Matt Ryan for the Falcons and Tom Brady for the Patriots, who’s going for his fifth Super Bowl win.


We’re broadcasting the game on our televisions around the bar and, of course, we have a full menu with your favorite stadium food, including our roster of hot dogs. Our rotating taps will feature the best in domestic and craft beers, and our specials of the day are chicken and fries and, of course, the “Shot of the Day” special; Pendleton Whiskey.


Not into the game? Not a problem at the Yukon because we’ve got free pool all day on Sunday. Rack ‘em up and challenge your friends to see who’s the champion of our table.


If you want to watch the game but you don’t want to fight the crowds make your Super Bowl LI headquarters the Yukon Tavern. Just look for our neon sign on Milwaukee Avenue in Southeast Portland!


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!
