BarFly's Review of Spirit of 77
Formerly American Cowgirls
Sports bar without the trappings, kid friendly without too many kids, and heavily themed but without vomit inducing overkill (Spirit of 77is basically adorned with 70s era high school gymnasium trappings ). Mix that with comfort food served one notch above par and Sunday hangovers are decently tolerable, even if you could give a crap about the game.
Within it's cavernous interior you will find 4 TVs plus one huge 12ft projection, 4 custom made basketball games, 1 Foosball, 3 real dartboards, and inside bicycle parking.
Mon–Fri at 11am-close

I have been to this sports bar on multiple occasions, before Blazer games, in between sessions when March Madness was here, and just for fun to watch sports with friends who aren't from around here. I hadn't been there in about 8 months when I went in last and this time we stood around waiting for 20 minutes, getting bumped into from every direction, before a bartender even acknowledged us. WHen the guy finally took our ID's he came back 5 minutes later to tell me that he felt "sketchy" serving me because my California ID has an Oregon address on it. I explained to him the situation and he didn't say anything and proceeded to ask my friends what they wanted to drink. I assumed this meant it was okay so I told him what I wanted and then he said "didn't you hear me. I'm not serving you".
I was in shock. I had been to that bar multiple times with the same ID and never have had any problems and all of a sudden that night I got denied for no reason. I could've shown the guy credit cards to back up the ID but he didn't even bother asking. SO we took our service else where and I will not be going back or recommending it to anyone in the future.
This is sad because it is really one of the only places within walking distance of the coliseum and moda center.
Pretentious hipsters love this place. It's a scene, man! For the rest of us, who just want to watch sports in an inviting, comfortable setting? Not so good.
This place could be awesome; there is nothing near the Rose Quarter and no place to go after Blazerís games. I think that a few improvements are needed. Areas of improvement: 1. Need a cocktail menu. They will make you whatever you want, but you donít always know what you want and the prices are sometimes a surprise, not in a good way 2. Need a sign-up sheet for pop-a-shot and time limits. Itís super awesome that itís free, but there are some pop-a-shot hogs and not everyone gets a turn. There should be a sing-up sheet and time limits, Ĺ hour or so. 3. Get a soda fountain. They add $1.00 for every mix drink with a soda. Oh, and they donít give you the can, so are essentially charging you 3 times for the same can of pop. Not a good way to make friends. This is one of those bad cocktail price surprises, turning your $6 cocktail into a $7 cocktail for a splash of soda. Very lame.
