The LaurelThirst Public House has been part of the Kearns Neighborhood in Portland Oregon since 1988. Since its opening, The LaurelThirst has strived to provide a great place for people to gather and eat good and reasonably priced food, choose from a large selection of micro-brews and wines (many of them local) and a place to hear the best local music that Portland has to offer in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The LaurelThirst has been lucky enough to foster a community of exceptional and diverse people that includes its staff, musicians, neighbors and customers. It is a community that we are constantly thankful for.
