The Portland Hunt + Alpine Club
The Portland Hunt and Alpine Club is somewhere between a restaurant with great drinks and a cocktail bar with excellent food, and as a result, it works great as either. This Scandinavian spot near the Old Port serves small plates and snack boards, which include things like gravlax, Swedish meatballs, and parmesan and green chili popcorn, the latter of which is reason enough to come here. Cocktail-wise, they take their drinks very seriously and the bartenders will happily walk you through their extensive cocktail list, or make something custom for you. If that’s not enough, there are more than 60 different whiskeys you can try too.
