Corkscrew Wine Bar - Portland

Great to be back at this cool venue. The Corkscrew is just a great place to hear live music as the audience is very quiet (rare nowadays) and it is just a beautiful space. Located in the Sellwood District of SE Portland (just around the corner from the Moreland Theater on SE Bybee Blvd) they have a great wine selection  (of course) but also beer on tap with small plates and desserts. No cover charge. Check out their music schedule on their website (I recommend you see Bass & Face a great duo with Craig Snazelle on bass and Mike Winkle on vocals). See you at the Corkscrew...
