If you enjoy great food, excellent service, and humorous company, it is actually silly for you not to be at The Lamp right now, enjoying a local microbrew and gorging yourself on our handmade Lamp burger while sharing a laugh with the staff. Located right next to the Aladdin Theater in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Southeast Portland, The Lamp is a perfect destination for concertgoers and locals alike, an intimate restaurant and lounge offering a cozy atmosphere, a fine pour, and the best grub this side of the Willamette. We have great beers, from local taps to popular bottles, select wines, and a full bar featuring top shelf spirits.

Our kitchen is proof that The Lamp loves you and wants you to be happy and satiated. Try the Bo Diddley recommended Catfish Po-Boy, blackened or fried and dressed up with our award-winning Jalapeno cole slaw, have a hand-tossed pizza with tomato garlic goodness and deep-piled toppings, or sample a homemade soup of the day.

The Lamp also has daily food specials, including the $5 "broke ass" lunch special, a pocketbook pleaser that has been instrumental in reversing the sagging American economy.

The Lamp is now open early on weekends and features our fantastic brunch menu from 10-2. Shake out the cobwebs and start your day here with breakfast and a Mary.

So let the jealous fools of the world thrash about outside in the cold and rain. You deserve better, hardworking citizen that you are. Delicious, delicious booze, Oregon Lottery games, HD flatscreen TV's, and handspun foods await. Come on in to watch the game, watch some people, talk to your neighbors, listen to music, eat a savory sandwich, have a drink and get happy.


"...the Brooklyn bar offers almost everything one could ask for: a nice selection of beers on tap, the best burgers in the neighborhood ($8 with blue cheese and bacon) and a laid-back, agreeable staff."
