Portland's Spirit of 77 is an inspired reinvention of the traditional American sports bar, and feels more like a high school gym at game time. It's ambiance comes from it's high rafters, worn wood, and an acoustic profile that cultivates roaring enthusiasm. "The game" can be viewed by all as it is projected on the south wall 16 feet high. Fans belly up to rows of communal tables, enjoying their favorite stadium style foods and debating players, teams, stats, and favorite brews. Feeling more like beer hall than a sports bar at times, this place has a lot of character.
