This was one of the first places I 4/26/2012

This was one of the first places I visited upon coming to Portland in 2004. It was great then but is awesome now! From the diverse groupings of people to strike up entertaining conversations with, to the super funny and friendly bartenders, to the bad ass music the bartenders play, one of the Best bar menus in town (affordable and super tasty for the carnivores and omnivores alike)(Yummy!) and all the quirky events/perks they have on a regular basis. I like to watch sports too and they are more than happy to play several games at a time on their multiple t.v.s. Also, I'm a chick and it's nice to go somewhere by myself from time to time and not have to worry about there being tons of dirt bags or creepers. For the most part every one is pretty rad at this joint. Like I said before the BOG is Awesome! Any time I'm in the area I definitely make it over. Thanks*^_^ more

local haunt 1/19/2009

I live just a few blocks away, so I spend many a night here. The service is good, and the drinks are stiff. Nothing super amazing about this place, but the patio's pretty cool. more

Yummy 9/17/2008

My boyfriend and I come here all the time, even when we moved 30 mins away, we still made the drive.\r The people are nice, and the food is yummy.\r Don't Forget to try the soup.\r Not many bars make homemade soup, it even beats my grandmas.\r Bar of the Gods has the best, more

Despite the thick cloud of smoke 4/22/2008

I have been going to BOG for as long as I can remember it's presence on Portland's famed Hawthorne BLVD. It took a couple years for the hipster scene to attack it... I remember when I could go inside and expect nothing but chain smoking bikers and kick butt hot mama's but they've relocated to Anthony's down the street... Truly I don't care about who hangs out there as long as I can get a place to sit and partake in one of the greatest sandwiches known to man and woman kind.... The Persephone, named after my favorite Greek Goddess. This SPICY, and I mean spicy, meatball sub, is the BEST meatball sub you can find this side of NYC! The beans and rice are incredible! The diversity of the menu cannot be beat, nor can the price and flavor! The fact that I can taste the awesomeness of their food over the thick heavy cloud of smoke, well that right there speaks for itself! Pros: Best Bar Menu in Portland Cons: Smoke smell is awful more

BOG rocks! 9/21/2007

By far my favorite bar in Portland. Despite a ""hipster"" reputation, most everyone there (staff and patrons) are super friendly. The food is super yummy especially the sandwiches and vegetarian fare. Although they don't open til 5pm, it's the best happy hour in town with dollar PBRs and cheap booze til 8. The place seems to get about the right amount of people on weekends to fill up, but not be too crazy. A great date spot if you aren't looking for something super classy. Yes it's dark and the music is loud but the tunes are good and they show movies with the subtitles on which is fun. The Hawthorne ""barmuda triangle"" as they call it is kind of out of the way but it's nice to be able to wander around the neighborhood if you need to really kick your liver into high gear. I never walk out of the BOG feeling like i should have gone somewhere else. The place gets five stars and two shockers up for sure! Pros: good service, nice people Cons: smokey and loud more

The name says it all! 1/28/2007

Were to start. The atmosphere is great, if you dont want to have a good time, meet real people and stay positive then dont go. The drinks are great the price is right and the bartenders are the best (even if the big bald guy isnt there anymore). Friendly, quick (if you go to the well to order, hint hint) and HOT as hell!!!! I love dark bars and this one is the darkest, it feels like you can disappear right into the walls. No wounder it was voted in the top twenty of dive bars in the u.s. by STUFF MAG., its a freakin portland icon. Get to the BOG and have some fun. Dont forget if you act like an a__ you get treated like one people.......Ex-tender in P-TOWN. Pros: Atmosphere Cons: With popularity comes smoke! more

Good food, real cheap beer but overtly smoky 11/10/2006

I think my companions and I decided to patronize the BOG simply based on fascination with its name. Well, and we also heard that it had great food and cheap drinks. What more of a motivation do you need? Upon entering the bar, I found it terribly lit (I'm not necessarily a fan of poorly lit place, unfortunately) and extremely smoky. I also almost choked on all that cigarette smoke that was just thick in the air inside. Food menu is regulation bar food menu... appetizers, chicken strips, fish and chips, burgers, sandwiches. Nothing out of the ordinary. The beer was cheap! $2 PBR, $3.5 micros... no complaints there. I ordered the pulled pork sandwich on a hoagie roll with house made BBQ sauce. Amazing! Simply delicious! The pulled pork was tender, juicy and smothered in BBQ sauce. One thing to note is the BOG Jalapeno sauce, which I couldn't get enough of. \r \r Verdict: I would consider returning to BOG, if I wanted to have a pulled pork sandwich and if I wasn't afraid of getting lung cancer from the effects of second hand cigarette smoke. Pros: BBQ pulled pork sandwich, cheap beer Cons: Too much smoking, too dark more

Wowzers 8/29/2006

The food is so good! Good drinks! no complaints here. I've been there tons of times and I am always happy with everything. They are usually playing really good movies as well last time I went they were playing The Wiz! EXCELLENT! Pros: Food, Pinball, Drinks Cons: It gets a little crowded sometimes more

Thursday Nights 11/29/2005

Great DJs with eclectic tastes. Can get a little crowded due to the overwhelming popularity of the 3M DJ Collective. more

User review by porkslider 4/6/2005

usually some good eyecandy or random movie on the tube to not pay attention to while you drink the frosty pints of your choice, great happy hour drink special (shot & a beer for $3.50 . . .) & the soups which are pretty hearty and good size fer 3 bucks aint bad neither. Bartenders are friendly sometimes have to spread the friendly around so it may take an extra minute or 2 to get your drink but it's worth it usually a good joke or some other random act of shenanagins. All in all me personally i would recomend the place to a friend or if it was my neighborhood bar i would be happy. Pros: cheap drinks, great weekly soups, laid back atmosphere Cons: booth seating space, no happy hour food, fix the pool table more

Strong drinks, cheap beer, tasty food, and Sake; what more do you need? Pros: Good drinks, games, Hot door guy Cons: heavy smoke, extreme dark, wouldn't let me stay more
