Bars/Restaurants

A group of 17 bars and restaurants in Portland have formed a coalition and agreed to require proof of vaccination for guests indoors. 

Daniel Shoemaker, owner of the Teardrop Lounge in Northwest Portland, is compiling the growing list of bars and calls the group of businesses the “Portland Bar Vaccine Coalition.” 

“We're going to be a strong group after this weekend,” said Daniel Shoemaker, owner of the Teardrop Lounge in Northwest Portland. “My hope is we're sharing this burden because there will be a backlash.”

Here are the spots that have joined the coalition so far:
