   noun: tryst

a private, romantic rendezvous between lovers


Everyone is welcome at Tryst. We strive to provide a relaxing, unpretentious environment with good music, delicious food, lovely cocktails and damn good Oregon beer. Woman owned! Local! We have a late 1800's  space with character and a genuinely friendly staff.   Locals may remember our space as the former Berbati's. You will see the old copper floor reused as wainscotting throughout the bar as well as the big neon sign from back in the day. We serve a wide variety of dishes from various Asian cultures. Vegetarian and vegan plates are available. We sell 99% locally made beer and have wonderful handcrafted cocktails. Our main door is in the pedestrian only Ankeny Alley, across from Valentines & Dan and Louis Oyster Bar,  two doors east of Voodoo Donuts, just a block north of Saturday Market.   Outdoor seating is available on 2nd and a separate patio on Ankeny.  Residing in our pretty bar is an old school FILM photo booth that was shipped here from London England. We play 50'S-90's music depending on our staffs daily vibe.  If you'd like food prepared To Go or if you'd like us to save you a table please call.  We do not have lottery, we want you to leave happy and we do not have TV's, we like when you huddle up and talk to each other. Reach out if you would like to book a party,  hold a monthly or weekly event. Our capacity is 100 people.  Come have some great food, a perfect cocktail or some local beer in a truly unique Old Portland space!
