Bourbon Program - Bistro by Truss

  • 503-226-7600

Sit, sip and unwind, all in good time. See your spirit take flight when you experience the craft and style of Bourbon at Bistro by Truss, a downtown dining experience that blends a Purely Portland vibe with iconic Kentucky Bourbon flair.


About Bistro by Truss

True, Bistro by Truss is a hotel lobby bar, but also so much more. It’s where downtown Portland locals might meet by day and unwind by night. It’s a place that wholly embraces the city’s love for what’s fresh and real. And it's where slowing down is the rule, not the exception.


Here, made-on-site barrel-aged cocktails are led by, but not limited to, a bourbon resurgence. Taste what’s familiar or try something new. Share a bite with old or new friends. Start with our bartender.


Aged for years in new, charred barrels made from 200-year-old oak trees, the beauty of bourbon is in the slow, smooth sips and the way the flavor lingers. Let our knowledgeable craft bartenders take you on a flight, enchanting you with masterfully blended cocktails and the stories behind the distillers and process that contribute to each drink’s distinctive flavor. In addition to over 50 bourbons and whiskeys, we offer a variety of other spirits, local beers and wines.

A Local Connection

While Kentucky and Scottish distillers still reign supreme, other unexpected regions — like Oregon’s Willamette Valley — are pushing the craft to rave results. We proudly feature a Purely Portland flight from a new breed of craft distillers that have recently achieved their place in the category of world-class spirit makers.


Join us in the bistro at 5:00pm every day for a complimentary Purely Portland toast.
