The Armory Lounge

Located in the lower lobby of the hotel, the Armory Lounge has long been considered one of the more popular hangouts in Portland’s exciting Old Port neighborhood. Make yourself comfortable at our mahogany bar or in the cozy alcove, while experienced, friendly bartenders create imaginative cocktails featuring ingredients like jalapeño pear, basil-infused syrup, pumpkin puree, and chilled espresso. Martini lovers in particular will be in heaven here at the Armory; be sure to stop by for our special Martini Mondays, as well as other weekly drink specials and an extensive wine and beer list.

In addition to cocktails, the Armory Lounge serves lunch and dinner, with classic pub favorites like fish and chips, burgers, jumbo shrimp cocktails, and our famous lobster croissant. It’s no wonder the Armory is ranked among the top bars in Portland every year.
