Not mad at all. One of 6 underground bars we have recently discovered in Portland. This one has street access and hotel access (The Portland Regency). Nice clubby atmosphere, busy enough, some free snacks at 5pm when we arrived. The bartender Ruby is what made the experience special as she is awesome at her profession. Lovely Martinis and Gibson's and... More

Actually went here for dinner. Cocktails were wonderful, the bar staff is fun and truly enjoys helping people. Food was very good. Had a variety of dishes, including 2 small, but wonderful desserts. Would recommend eating here. NOT appropriate for movement challenged or handicapped persons.

After a day of exploring the Old Port, this Amory Lounge is a very nice comfortable, friendly place with a fire to sit down with friends and have appetizers and drinks. People, atmosphere, and food are all excellent and very fairly priced. Look forward to going there.

A well-appointed bar, with an excellent selection of single-malts and upscale mixed drinks. Caitlin was our hostess, and her attention was impeccable. Light snacks were all we ate, as, after a cold, snowy drive up, I just wanted whisky...hahaha

I really like the setting - old world club atmosphere with a bit of noise from the mixed younger crowd. Seems to be an after work go-to gathering place for local employees as well as hotel guests from upstairs. We had two rounds of excellent cocktails and a decent meal to follow complete with a couple of shared appetizers. 3... More

We visited twice over the last weekend. In all honesty, I had no idea they offered food other than a snack plate. Friday was incredibly busy night and our server, who was more mature than some of the other servers was incredibly conscientious- despite the fact I was waiting for friends and just a party of one in an extremely...

Our group stopped in for drinks after dinner and the lounge was nearly full, but the service was still great and drinks were good qualify.

This is a very nice place to have a romantic drink or dinner. We went last weekend with some friend. The drinks were fantastic and the atmosphere was out of this world. We ended up eating here. Food was great.
