Default Bars and clubs in Portland

Can anyone recommend me some? Particularly bars with a friendly atmosphere, darts and pool tables.

Too many to list them all!

The McMenamins chain is always pretty good. One of my favorite places in the region is the Rock Creek Tavern, which is in a sort of barn with a garden, a pool table on the second floor, and a huge fireplace. It's a true "pub" atmosphere.

In town, the Laurelhurst pub is good, and if you want something a bit more hip, but still cozy, there's the Doug Fir. One of my favorite "old Portland" places is Holman's-- Brad runs a great live blues radio show there on Fridays, and they open the back garden for acoustic blues in the summer.

The local "alternative" paper is called Willamette Week, they have lots of bar/pub ads. The local brewpubs, IMO, are the nicest.
