Drink Up and Get Happy has reviewed Maps Cafe,
The vibe is almost like 70’s basement home bar mixed with your neighborhood pub. It’s comfortable and friendly. The owners are always in house, serving up drinks or grilling sandwiches. They have a great selection of albums and are often playing them on the turntable. Our favorite feature is the jukebox tucked in the corner. It’s free to play any song on it and the owners rotate the selection so there is often a new song to rediscover.
and the Press Herald has reviewed The Thirsty Pig.
The Thirsty Pig in Portland’s Old Port neighborhood is serious about local craft beer, but not in an off-putting, pretentious way. The staff is friendly and talkative, and the atmosphere encourages a laid-back crowd. Owner Allison Stevens has made it her mission to offer great tasting craft beer and handmade sausages at an affordable price.
