The atmosphere was ok, albeit a bit loud for my taste in a specialty cocktail bar of this kind, though I didn't knock the place for that because that's more to do with my expectations than a fault of the location. The upstairs area was nice, although a bit cramped, and did offer chairs and a couch that were comfortable. I was slightly disappointed with their specialty Old Fashioned. It wasn't bad, but when a bar like this boasts a custom take on a classic I expect a bit more pop than I got. My companion had a cinnamon and whiskey cocktail that I thought was better than mine and quite good, but not to the level of blowing me away. Overall not a bad experience by any stretch, but wouldn't be my first choice if I'm looking to spend an evening mingling or chatting over craft cocktails.
Good small town bar. It's a smaller space with a good feel. First time in and I could tell there were many regular in there. Everyone felt like friends. Upstairs was nice and more private area. We will come back more often.
Im conflicted on this review, so Ill try to explain. This is my local bar, it has a decent atmosphere, its a smaller location, so can become very loud when live music is played. If you want a speciality cocktail its not a bad spot, old fashioned is around $15. My biggest complaint with Stumptown is the price for a beer. Miller Lite draft is $6.50 and Yuengling is $7. So as an FYI this is not the place to go for some beers, as itll be very costly!! Real shame as this used to be the spot for me and my neighbors to grab some beers and hangout.
Fernando made a nice old-fashioned. I enjoyed the company of him and the patrons. Matthews is my home and I love being here.
Awesome place to share with friends. Great staff
