Hawthorne Boulevard forms the backbone of the popular and much beloved Hawthorne District. Crossing over the Willamette via the Hawthorne Bridge (the oldest working vertical lift bridge in the U.S.) you’ll find yourself in one of the most funky and unique areas in southeast Portland. Best known for its bohemian vibe and beautifully restored Craftsman style homes, Hawthorne is home to a bevy of unconventional shops, incomparable eateries, and the unmistakable personality of Portland.
Hawthorne favorites include: Bread and Ink Café, The Daily Grind, (natural foods bakery), Three Doors Down (Italian) and Chez Machin (Creperie). The nightlife is hopping with two theaters (CineMagic and McMenamin’s Bagdad), live music (Hawthorne Theater), cocktails (Sapphire Hotel) and a variety of tasty brewpubs all lined up to serve you. In the summer, outdoor seating really makes the boulevard hum with life and libations. Good thing home is just a short walk away.
Need a break from the crowds? Grab a book at Powell’s and take the short drive to nearby Mt. Tabor for epic views and some quiet reading time.
