A little bit about our restaurant:

Keys Lounge on Killingsworth opened in April of 2018 and has quickly become a favorite neighborhood hangout. We have a uniquely cool atmosphere with Persian rugs, a wall full of vinyl, great cocktails, and a from-scratch menu. We're open from 3 pm until 12 pm seven days a week, with brunch service Saturdays and Sundays. We are the funky little sister of Radio Room on Alberta Street, which has been serving the PDX Arts district for over 13 years.
