BarFly's Review of Jasmine Tree (CLOSED)
Sadly, the Jasmine Tree closed it's doors on Oct 6, 2006. It will be missed
Authentic '50s tiki-bar motif, features occasional live music events. Wiseass BTs. Lots of unrealized potential. Every first Tuesday is the comedy show Extra Medium. Pretty damn funny, and definitely something to do on a Tuesday.

Good place to go for an after work drink. Or drinks. Jimmy is a good barkeep you remembers your name and drink after only a couple visits. I go in there maybe once a month and he always greets me by name. They have rock and comedy shows which I used to go see when I lived in the neighborhood (think experimental college rock and improv/standup college comedy - both can be good, are frequently lousy). The barflies alone are indeed worth the visit, but it's the stiff cheap drinks (and my Keno addiction) that keep me coming back. Also right on the streetcar line, bonus.
I'm gonna cut to the chase: The Jasmine Tree is Awesome. It is a bar for people hho have been to lots of bars. This is a bar that the wild, frat-boy upside-down-power-visor-wearing jocks of PSU and their tanned, shallow girlfriends simply will never understand. The Jasmine tree is like Indiana Jones meets Star Wars meets Bukowski. Truly unique. So now that we have established that amatuers are not allowed, lets delve into what is so cool about the bar...
Upon walking down the short flight of srairs into the Bar, you are enveloped into the RED RED light which illuminates the tiki bar. Going along with the gaudy 1950s theme, you meet Jimmy. He is an impecibly dressed bartender whose chineese accent and snappy humor are an instant plus.
Then comes the clientel...just sit back, sip your drink, and LISTEN to what the hell they are talking about. You will laugh, cry, or hurl.
Yes, Portland Service Industry: This Bar's for You.
