Missing Mock Crest Tavern

The time has come to bid a fond farewell to one of my favorite North Portland taverns where I go to relax and enjoy an evening out with friends. I’m moving to a new city now and packing up my suitcase of memories that I’ve made at Mock Crest Tavern.

The Best in Live Music in Portland

I’ve spent many nights at Mock, listening to some of the best live music you’ll find in Portland. I’ve gotten to know a few of the band members and witness their passion for music. Every time I go out to Mock to hear a band I know I’m in for a memorable night.

Delicious Food and Drink

Mock’s pint-sized kitchen is legendary for turning out delicious food. Their daily specials surprise and delight and their weekend breakfasts go far beyond what you’d expect of a small neighborhood tavern.

Likewise, their drink selection is above par. Inventive, delicious, and timely; their drinks are made to satisfy by Mock’s expert bartenders who are devoted to their art.

The Atmosphere

Mock Crest Tavern is just the kind of place I look for when I want to relax after a day at work. It’s a quiet little bar with a laid-back atmosphere when I get there at five and, when the band kicks up at nine, I’m ready for a joyful night of great blues, rock, and Americana music.

I may have to say good-bye to Mock Crest Tavern, but my memories will keep me smiling. Don’t miss out on your chance to make those same kinds of memories every week at Mock Crest Tavern.

A “No Maintenance” Yard Just for You!

Make Mock’s back patio your summer hangout. Our grassy seating area is perfect for that backyard feel—and, you aren’t responsible for its upkeep. If it gets cold or rainy you won’t have to run inside because our patio has a covered area with heat lamps to keep you warm.

Fire Up the Grill!

Summer is the season for juicy burgers and frosty glasses of beer. We know you have your favorite combinations already in mind and at Mock our chefs and bartenders can pair up the meal you love most. Our selection of ten different burgers—beef, chicken, and fish—taste even better with a brew poured from our rotating taps, our top shelf liquors, or our large selection of wines and ciders.

The Sounds of Summer

Three nights a week Mock is home to some of the best live music you’ll find in Portland. We schedule our bands every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights at 9pm. Tonight we’re featuring blues legend Norman Sylvester & Friends and tomorrow the Tracey Fordice Band will be on “stage.”
