Pearl District

Establishment neighborhood
Hand-Eye Supply
427 N.W. Broadway, Pearl District
This Old Town Portland work-supply-meets-lifestyle shop is a hotspot for the city’s creative craftspeople and DIY enthusiasts. Locally-made and ethically-sourced goods are their specialty: you’ll find everything from work aprons to selvedge denim jeans, gardening tools to axes for chopping firewood, even a selection of stationery and decor for your studio. In keeping with the founders’ DIY spirit, its airy, modern interior, modular storage, and interactive displays were custom-built by their own team.
Hotel Monaco
506 S.W. Washington St., Pearl District
A packed social calendar (live music and nightly wine service), spacious and home-like rooms (Frette sheets, lots of natural light), and the organic small-plate-focused restaurant, Red Star Tavern, make Monaco one of the most coveted reservations in town. The elaborate, Mediterranean-themed tapestries and vibrant red-orange-and-blue color scheme throughout the communal areas and rooms are a refreshing departure from the strictly classical or modern hotels in the city. Lest you forget you’re in Portland, a live goldfish can be sent up to your room upon request to keep you company during your stay.
10 Barrel Brewing Co.
1411 N.W. Flanders St., Pearl District
Situated in the Pearl District, 10 Barrel brews their own creative selection of beers and serves food with locally-sourced ingredients to pair it with: Try the champagne oyster shooters for starters, and leave room for all the comforting, quintessential pub food, from burgers to fish-and-chips to pizza (gluten-free crust is an option for all pies on the menu). Upstairs, at the open-air rooftop bar, you'll find the same menu, in addition to panoramic views of the West Hills and the Pearl District—when the weather cooperates.
