Inside, this lounge is a dark, huntsman-themed cocktail bar with chef-y small plates; outside, bare wooden picnic tables spill out into a traffic-free alleyway in downtown Portland. The mysterious signage lists crêpes (a nod to Knox’s first business, the late-night food cart Perierra Crêperie), but the focus here is on well-crafted cocktails made with house infusions like the unexpected cedar-scented absinthe.
