Alberta Arts District
Lined with street art, galleries, restaurants and bars, this Northeast Portland neighborhood is perhaps best known for its colorful monthly street fair, Last Thursday.
Boasts some of the most avant-garde arts and community elements in Portland, featuring art galleries, murals, shops, great little cafes, and bars
Alberta Arts District is a commercial district in Portland, Oregon which connects the Concordia, King and Vernon neighborhoods in the Northeast quadrant of the city. The district centers on NE Alberta Street, and stretches approximately 1.5 miles, from Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to NE 33rd…
Alberta Street has great local shops, art, music, and great restaurants. I recommend walking anywhere from 15th to 30th.
“Down-to-earth, funky and edgy neighborhood filled with music, art, shopping, and an awesome food cart pod”
“Once its own town, this North Portland enclave is filled with homegrown shops, independent spirit and plentiful things to do. More than 100 years ago, leafy St. Johns existed as a small, quiet town at the confluence of the Willamette and Columbia rivers. Today, the quaint North Portland neighborhood retains its small-town charm with its many locally owned shops, pubs and cafés. Pack a picnic blanket for an afternoon in Cathedral Park, cross the picturesque St. Johns Bridge and get ready to explore a lovely, lesser-known side of Portland.”
“An old neighborhood that has been rejuvenated and has a few gems for food and drinks. Doesn't have much of the old left in it, but I find myself here often because my favorite bar is still there (Maui's). Check out Box Social for fancy cocktails and Vendetta for shuffle board. ”
