Date Places

Looking to take someone on a date in Portland, OR? Here are some ideas.


Sapphire Hotel

  • Located in an ex brothel, the red walled and dimly lit Sapphire Hotel is a downright swanky bar. The candlelight and small tables encourage leaning in and even canoodling. The drinks are excellent, the staff is always friendly, and the food and dessert are unique and yummy. 

Happy hour from 4-6 is fun, but the best hour for the sapphire is after dinner or at the tail end of a date. Everyone looks gorgeous in the low light, and with a few specialty drinks and desserts it may be the perfect date spot.
