BarFly's Review of Wilshire Tavern
Coolio should write a song about this place called "Gamer's Paradise." This cozy "Cub friendly" neighborhood bar has pool, pinball, shuffleboard, $1 Buds during Nascar races, all video lottery games, and the best li'l video crack nook in Oregon! Seriously, you'll feel like a poker princess, sitting in the hexagonal turret of this gaming mini-kingdom.
Also, if you're like me and like to concentrate while you geek your way through the Megatouch high scores, there's a perfect private seat for you, as the machine is tucked into a wee little cranny. Perhaps the most unique thing about this fun and friendly spot is their nuts. Their hot fresh nuts, which come in a variety of shapes and sizes and flavors.
Funny phrases overheard here were a grizzled she-regular asking for a "glass of red wine - filled to the TOP!!" and the friendly bartender Dave departing my company because he felt he "better serve these animals" quickly before they got cranky.
Hours: 10am - 2:30am daily

One of the "hearts" of the neighborhood. It's a community/rec cen ter for adults. No hard alcohol and CASH ONLY! If you're a decent humble human you'll get along fine with the regulars. If you're a jerk? See ya! I recently moved but when I'm in town it's a given that's where I'll wind up.
As neighbor, I love this as my local. You all need a place as comfortable as this. At first I lamented their lack of food, Now I love that I can only go there to drink, and play shuffleboard or poker plus they have all the Comcast Blazer games.
This bar is a little on the old school Portland bar side of things, decor, cliental, the whole thing. Most puzzling is the useless shuffle table, which rather than using "sand" (i.e. silicon, called sand but isnít' actually sand) on the table, they have actual sand, taken from the playground perhaps? Perplexing.
Ahh, the Wilshire Tavern, how do I love thee. The Tavern as most call it, is the place to enjoy all your vices, Video Crack, Pool, Shuffleboard, Big Buck Hunter, Megatouch, Keno, Pinball, liver disease, hangovers etc. It is a blessing they don't serve Hard Alc because A) The crowd would be filled with more A-holes, and B) The bartenders don't have the patience to pour any type of martini or crazy mixed drink, and would just make fun of you the rest of the night. Bartender Dave is a great guy, until he tells me to get out because they are closing, then his name is Dick and he sucks.
