Portland Happy Hour: Kells

Posted by Kelly

What: Kells
Where: 112 SW 2nd Ave
When: Mon-Fri 4-7pm, Mon-Thurs 10pm-12am, Sun 7pm-10pm
Honeys Heart: Regular status!

Recently we celebrated my friend Sofi's birthday...for like 3 weeks...but on her actual birthday we had to go to a happy hour and what better spot to visit than Kells where Sofi is in fact a "regular." I LOVE achieving regular status, so I was more than willing to help Sofi maintain hers.

I usually think of Kells only on St. Patrick's Day or for beer drinkers, but their happy hour has pretty great prices and isn't bad. Not my favorite hh ever, but for $3 (for all items) it's a steal.

We ordered some of Sofi's favorites. Wings and oyster shooters.

But since I'm a bad wing eater and sometimes just can't stomach the texture of an oyster, we also ordered the daily quesadilla (which that Tuesday happened to be cheese and black beans) and sweet potato fries.

Kells also requires that you order a minimum beverage purchase (not hard to do on a birthday) so while Sofi ordered beer, I went for the house wine. Yeah I know beer would be more "Irish" of me, but I still just don't really like it (unless drinking for competitive purposes)

Overall, it's worth a try. Cheap, great atmosphere, nice waiters, friendly bartenders...
