Crooners & Cocktails is a warm, dimly lit, cocktail lounge and restaurant on exchange street. As soon as you walk up to this establishment, you know everything is going to be amazing, they even have a red velvet rope and stanchion outside their door with outside seating! When you walk into the lounge, you are immersed by the songs and photos of The Rat Pack, Frank Sinatra Dean Martin and the like. The interior has a gorgeous silver decretive ceiling with TV’s playing current shows and sporting events in Black & White.
For drinks you can have anything from beer to classics like martini’s, Sazerac’s, Manhattans and the list goes on and one, basically if you know a drink, that you can’t get anywhere else in Portland, you can get it here. The Bartenders are expert mixologists, and hands down make the BEST Cocktails in The Old Port, expect to pay the big bucks though, for one of the cocktails mentioned above they run approximately $10, but you know you are getting quality. One of the bartenders and managers Alex is a sweetheart and has bartended all around Old Port and even in New York.
The food is also pricey, but you are still getting a quality and delicious meal, well worth the price you are paying. I’m not going to go through their entire menu, but I had their Filet Mignon and it was magical. The portions of their food is fantastic and filling and you definitely get your monies worth. If you have allergies to something like Gluten let your server know and they will work with you to make sure what you are getting you can eat and enjoy.
