Wished they showed more photos from inside the bar.

I have a few interior photos here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/heylownine/tags/thatchtikibar/

Great bar. We plan to return to Portland soon. I hope it's still there.

Well, if that really is Thatch that is up for sale, I'm sorry to see it because who knows what will happen after the sale. The "sunken bar" and "custom made" decor definitely point to Thatch. I do hope it continues as it is. It's a terrific neighborhood bar similar to Forbidden Island. We've been fortunate on the few visits we've made to it that the right mix of employees were there. One of the servers at Thatch, whose name I unfortunately do not recall, is responsible for the perfect music soundtrack we've heard on more than one occasion. It seems that if he's there, his iPod loaded with exotica/lounge/hapa haole is providing the music backdrop. If he's not there... you get what you get.

To be honest, the one thing I do hope new owners will change is the name. "Thatch" is a little uninspired.

Here's hoping it lives on though!

I wonder if the new Trader Vics opening has hurt business at Thatch?

Heylownine, your photos of the interior are awesome. It's too bad R/E agents Liza and Darryn have decided to post some generic bar and drink images instead of photos like yours that really describe the decor, and appeal, of the place. The only problem is, I want to see more of them!

Yup, a name has been chosen. One night after getting off work, I stopped by a taco stand and had one too many tongue tacos with way too many onions, and I awoke in the middle of the night and the name came to me.

Well, at least he didn't call it "Rolaids".

Pour. Thatch. Eat. Burp. Fart. A little too minimalistic for my tastes.

But the space was designed well. I'll give him that. Except for the lamps all in a row. But that's another conversation...

Wow. I'm not all that hard to get ahold of to answer your questions.

My ex wife never intended to enter the restaurant and or bar biz. She is trying to cash out which she has the right to. If someone wants in half, be an owner operator while drawing a salary, call/text me at 503-267-2800. But do it quick, otherwise this really nice couple wants to turn it into a xxxxxx xxx

It won't be recognizable is all I'm saying. All I need is someone to buy out the ex's half. Be an owner operator, Draw a salary while living the dream. Otherwise, the other option is just shutting her down. Let me know.
