Thirst Bistro opened in 2006 with our main dining room, bar and outside space. Thirst expanded with The River Room (private parties) in 2008 and expanded our menu from traditional wine bar to full restaurant including cocktails. In 2010 we opened The Cellar, another private dining room where we also hold our wine dinners and classes. In 2011, Thirst expanded again by opening The Cellar during the day as downtown Portland’s only Tasting Room featuring revolving Pacific NW Wineries. Thirst has patio seating for 125 outside on the Esplanade and is the best place to watch downtown fireworks in the summer and The Christmas Ships in December. Enjoy the unobstructed River and Bridge views year-round.
