multnomah
whiskey library

A whiskey lair adds
a glamorous new
dimension to Portland

If restaurateur Alan Davis hadn't

stumbled upon a green embossed and gilded
leather-topped oak table salvaged from a
nearby library, the inspiration for his newest
Portland project, Multnomah Whiskey
Library, may never have taken root. This
striking piece of vintage furniture, now in
the spotlight at his exclusive dining and
drinking den, was the initial design spark
for a fancy hangout that strays from the
city's traditionally funky ethos. "Much of
our concept was built around it," says Kelly
Ogden, director and owner of Portland-based
design firm ELK Collective, who handled
the project.
Davis' boƮte, set upstairs in a former
autobody shop in the Pearl District, "walks
the line between a library and a men's club,"
Ogden notes. "We looked to an underground
London scene and took cues from old
English pubs."
The space's original brick shell
heightened Davis' vision for an elegant but
well-worn look. Indeed, the fireplace-a
new addition-appears as if it has always
held court here, in the company of British
antiques. Dark, heavy wood, most of it
sourced from the Pacific Northwest, is
accentuated by portraits of notable whiskey
icons-from George Washington to Johnnie
Walker-all dreamed up by Portland-based
artists. Meanwhile, pre-existing skylight
openings are recessed with custom stained
glass in an Art Deco pattern.

brick shell of a former

Multnomah Whiskey
Library serves more
than 1,500 varieties
of the sprit.
