Hours: Open daily. Coffee: 7 a.m. – 6 p.m. Lunch: 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Bar: 4 p.m. – midnight. Kitchen: 4 p.m. – midnight.


Owner: Jesse Hayes

Atmosphere: Coffee shop and lunch venue by day; polished hipster bar by night. Industrial chic mixed with clubby library feel.

Clientele: Professionals and students during the day. Evenings attract couples and night owls keen on the craft cocktail scene.

Best seat in the house: Wooden bar in front of plate glass windows that open onto street and sidewalk. Booths across from the bar provide privacy and 180-degree views of venue.

Bragging rights: “We’re serving high end mixology and specialty coffee, but we’re not an elitist place,” says Hayes. Archive also features a downstairs speakeasy. Hayes is very hush-hush about the space, which, as per speakeasy etiquette, is invitation only.


Mix It Up

Spear an olive — or maraschino cherry — with an elegant brass pick. Do a little shaking in a stylish glass decanter. Guests will be transported back in time, even as you join the pioneers innovating Oregon’s modern drinking scene.
