30 Something Crowd

by written on May 19, 2007

Updated: February 2008

The Ace Hotel, formerly "The Clyde," reopened in February 2007 practically unnoticed, with little fuss or fanfare. Poor ID too. You wouldn't know it was there if you didn't know it was there, but it is now one of the hottest spots in town for young adults.

It had a lot to live down as "The Clyde," which got a bad rep all across the board. What it has going for it is location, location, location - as long as you don't mind living in the heart of Portland's small gay district.

The Ace is bracketed east & west by Portland's only, so far, streetcar line, is a block from Powell's world famous "City Of Books," and beyond that the trendy, expensive tourist (aka Pearl) district.

Portland's downtown hub, Pioneer Courthouse Square & [M]etro [A]rea e[X]press (MAX) train transportation are in the opposite direction.

Recently opened Kenny & Zuke's Delicatessen, located in the NW corner on the ground floor, has also captured the 30 something downtown crowd. Rocco's, a longtime popular by-the-slice pizza joint is catty-corner from Powell's on 10th & W Burnside Street.

Wholefoods health food store, emphasis on organic produce, might be a better choice for all around eats - open @ 8 AM a block past Burnside on 12th & Couch (as in coo-coo, not as in ouch). Be prepared for sticker shock once you load up your plate in the deli section.

To the south 2 blocks on SW 10th is Jake's in the Governor Hotel. More popular then either with local folk, perhaps, is Scooters between SW 13th & 14th on Washington - a block south, then west; near Scooter's, for a lighter touch on 13th & Alder is the Quick Bite - a sit-down slow-food cafe despite the name.

Unique Quality: The Clyde, nee Ben Stark, is no more. It has has been sold, and has undergone extensive renovation for many a month before reemerging as the ACE; a complete makeover.
