BARS: “Yen-Ha”

From Willamette Week’s “DRINK GUIDE 2008”:

Entering Yen Ha is like going to a Saigon speakeasy: Walk through the often-empty storefront dining area, through the back door, and discover the wonders of this dingy-ass, smells-like-shit time warp filled with good people, loads of booze and cheap Vietnamese eats. Order a heaping plate of cashew chicken ($7.50), sink into a low-slung, spinning lounge chair, and listen to a live, acoustic acid-jazz set or take part in an alcohol-soaked karaoke night. I love this place. 
Perfect Patron: It’s a shame archaeologists have been studying the monoliths at Stonehenge all these years. They could’ve been excavating the regulars at Yen Ha; they’ve probably been cemented to those barstools just as long. 
HAPPY HOUR 3-7 PM DAILY: $3.50 WELL DRINKS, $3 MICROBREWS. FOOD SPECIALS, TV, VIDEO POKER, KARAOKE. 6820 NE Sandy Blvd. 288-3773.

  1. We have the ‘Royal Oak’ in Oxford, and the ‘Great Bustard’ just north of Stonehenge, a little closer to home, Oh…and you haven’t begun the journey until you have tried a pint of Bunce’s real ale brewed at the Old Mill, Netheravon*. But thanks for the invite anyway.
