It’s Blazer Season!
The Blazers are back! We are so excited for the return of basketball season – and we’re excited to see all the Blazer fans again, too. (Best fans in the NBA!)
The Blazers home opener is tonight! We are just a short walk away from The Moda Center, so be sure to stop by for a drink and a snack before – or after – a game. We’re open until 11PM on weeknights, and 12am on weekends. Plus, we have happy hour daily from 4-6PM. We’ve got all your pre and post-game needs covered!

Altabira + Four Roses Bourbon
Bourbon lovers appreciate special bottlings and limited editions, especially when it is their bartender’s personal selection. In early October, our Bar Manager, Bonny MacDonald, traveled to Kentucky to visit the Four Roses Distillery and participate in their private selection program. Her favorite selection out of sample of 5, will be bottled and sent to Oregon, where it is expected to arrive in November.
Fans of David Machado Restaurants will have a chance to try our personal selection atAltabira City Tavern, Nel Centro, and Tanner Creek Tavern. We have a lot of bourbon lovers who visit Altabira City Tavern, and now we can offer them something unique and memorable from our whiskey list.
Private Dining at Altabira
Here at Altabira, we have a lot of options for private parties! We can do everything from small business lunches to large weddings or birthday parties – and everything in between. December is starting to book up with holiday parties – most evening weekends are booked – but we do have a lot of great options for holiday brunches or post-holiday parties!
HOLIDAY BRUNCH (DINING ROOM)
Our dining room is available to rent on weekend mornings for a gorgeous private holiday brunch buffet that overlooks the city. This is the perfect option for groups of 40-80 people. We have a full brunch buffet menu to choose from, in addition to mimosa and Bloody Mary bar options!
HOLIDAY LUNCHEONS (BALLROOM)
Our ballroom is available for private luncheons in December and January. Great for groups of 80-180, we offer a range of catering options – plated, buffet, or reception-style with heavy appetizers. The space can accommodate large groups but can be situated to work nicely for small groups as well. It’s a versatile room with a lot of options! Several of our private dining rooms feature sweeping views of downtown Portland.
POST-HOLIDAY PARTY IN JANUARY
Many companies are opting to skip the holidays and celebrate in the New Year. (Or, if you work in the service industry, you’re too busy with holiday parties to have one of your own until January!)
The good news is that we have many Friday and Saturday evenings available in January! We can host 80-180 seated, or up to 290 standing. We provide standard tables, white linens, place settings. We also work with several great rental and design companies who are happy to assist in setting up themed parties, lounge-style spaces, etc.
