The High Dive

Portland, OR

Builder: B&G Builders

This small Southeast Portland bar was opened by two veteran bartenders as their long-term investment in the industry. As suggested by the name, the bar seeks to provide libations in an inviting and comfortable environment without pretense. Rustic wood, dark and simple colors, and warm lighting provide a tight and familiar space. Previously an attorney’s office, the building required extensive modification to meet the programmatic requirements.
