Binks is the best bar on Alberta street. The bartenders are way down to earth as well as the people who hang out there. I really dont have much else to say except for the fact tha...

Honestly, there's nothing really interesting or unique about Binks. Have to say though, I find it pretty amusing they're touting themselves, or at least allowing themselves to be ...

much better non smoking! 7/13/2009

Have always enjoyed this spot. Much better with clean air Pros: service, atmosphere, drinks more

Great Location, but something funny about the food 5/29/2009

I really like the location and outside area. The mixed drinks are great, and a great place to spend a Sunday. I would recommend staying away from the food though, guaranteed to give you stomach issues. Pros: Great Location, great bartenders Cons: Food is funny more

Cute Neighborhood bar 12/3/2008

Came here as last bar in the night. A little crowded, but able to find a table in back. Hummus is good! Drinks are decent if you not looking for anything fancy. Eclectic music tastes on the jukebox, and it seemed like every song played did not deter from the friendly hipster vibe. Nicely decorated in a Moroccan theme. Love the idea of their freshly squeezed cocktails, but did not try any out. more

Great little bar . . . 11/21/2008

true . . . and they may have never said they were the oldest Alberta Street Tavern . . . but the hyperlink that directed me here did . . . Binks is quaint (if you like gentrification) . . . it may have Fat Tire (as do several other bars in PDX), but if they don't want to claim bragging rights for have 'stated' that they were in fact the oldest tavern on Alberta street then I suggest someone correct the error. more

Last Thursday special! 7/15/2008

This is THE place to hang out for last thursday on Alberta but get there early if you want to claim a decent spot outside. more

They never said they are the oldest tavern 12/3/2007

Binks is the best bar on Alberta street. The bartenders are way down to earth as well as the people who hang out there. I really dont have much else to say except for the fact that they never talk or bragf about being the oldest bar, but I will brag for them that they are the coolest. Pros: Staff and patrons Cons: Sometimes crowded, but still a good time more

Oldest tavern on Alberta! 11/22/2007

Honestly, there's nothing really interesting or unique about Binks. Have to say though, I find it pretty amusing they're touting themselves, or at least allowing themselves to be touted as the ""oldest"" tavern on Alberta. Whether or not it's true, it's pretty damn funny. Pros: Well, none really. Cons: A poor substitute for a real tavern more

Get your drinks at Binks. 3/8/2006

Don't let the garage door fool you, this place is great. The intimate feeling and the colorful atmosphere make this Alberta gem a jewel. The pool table is conveniently located in the garage and cushy light blue seat surround a gorgeously decorated fireplace. The place was not crowded when I visited there and the bartender was delightful. The menu looks tasty, but I just came for a beer or two. Check out the cool Star Wars poster in the bathroom! Pros: Atmosphere more

Last Thursday Central 8/27/2003

I went to last thursday last month and this place was the focal point of it all. Totally crowded with people spilling out onto the sidewalk and street. Nevertheless, I did manage to find a couple stools near the bar where I could talk to the gal I was with, and it wasn't so loud that we couldn't hear each other. The service was good and friendly too, without any attitude. Pros: Hip, cool Cons: Crowded more

neighborhood bar A+++++ 12/18/2002

I got carried away on the pluses, but that doesn't change the fact that Binks is a great neighborhood bar. It's locally owned and the proprietors are usually found behind the bar. The clientle is a nice mix of the Alberta St. crowd. You'll find musicians and contractors, artists and teachers knocking back beers waiting for the pool table to open up, or in front of the fireplace waiting for a break in the rain during the winter months. With it's attention to detail and personal touch on decor by the owners, Binks nurtures an enviroment that is friendly to the solo bar patron and the group of conversation minded friends. Great staff, great enviroment, and a nice jukebox. The only reason they don't get a ten is that they don't serve mix drinks. Someone else will have to rate the food. It looks good, but I've never tried it. Pros: Locally Owned, Conversation, Neighborhood Bar Cons: No Mixed Drinks more
