    Portland - Detention Bar @ McMenamin's Kennedy School

    Detention Bar - McMenamin's Kennedy School
    5736 N.E. 33rd Ave.
    Portland, OR 97211

    Hours

    Great selection of Scotch, Bourbon and Whiskeys.
    Two humidors with A. Fuentes, Perdomo, Punch, CAO, Cohiba, Romeo y Julieta and more ($5-11)

    It is a small place that can easily get busy. Room for about 20, but much more comfortable with half that many people. There are rumors of expansion.

    From the website:
    Well, if this is your idea of punishment, then we intend on being very bad indeed! With its cozy intimacy and a fine selection of cigars, the Detention Bar is the perfect place to enjoy beer, wine, fine single malts or bourbons while working on your "penance." No minors, please; this is an institution of higher education.
    I tend to frequent Detention on Tuesday's as it's usually the quietest night with just 4 or 5 others.

    Hey, I just joined the forum and I work in downtown Portland. Thanks for the tip, I'm definitely checking this place out!

    It's a cool place, and not all that far away from downtown. I haven't been in ages, but Kells, I believe, is the only bar left downtown that allows cigars. Otherwise you have retail places like Rich's.

    Don't bring a book or newspaper to the Detention Bar, it's a little dark. But it's a great little spot.

    Besides Kell's, El Gaucho supposedly still has their cigar lounge. But I think those are the last two spots downtown.

    There's also Greater Trumps on Hawthorne & 37th, not too far from downtown.

    There is also The Mark Sports Den. It is a little more west. It's a bar in the Shilo out on Canyon RD. Nice big place. Food and drinks served. Relatively well ventilated (much better than Kells). If trying to stay downtown there is a place called MOMO up on 10th near the library. It has a large outdoor courtyard with picnic tables and such. There are two heated covered areas for when the weather is not so spectacular. El Gaucho is nice too.

    Went to Kell's last week. Unimpressive selection of cigars and definitely not very well ventilated.
