Bar Type(s)

Founders Lee Medoff and Christian Krogstad met as brewmasters at McMenamins, but their love of booze went beyond barley and hops. In 2004, the pair founded House Spirits. Now it's the Pacific Northwest's largest distiller, with a Central Eastside tasting room—a 14,000-square-foot, $6 million facility that opened in November 2015—that unfolds like a glossy, art deco theater.
