Located in one of Portland's most popular destinations. Close in, bohemian, & fun, Hawthorne Blvd is known for it's quaint eateries, coffeehouses, pubs, unique shops, and the famous Bagdad Brewpub & Theatre. A quick trip to City attractions such as Powell's Books, Old Town, Weekend Market, Washington Park, Willamette River Promenade, etc. It's the perfect blend of urban pulse and friendly attitude.
