The end of summer was full to say the least. It felt like every spare moment was spent running to some show, hosting friends from San Francisco, showing them around Portland and seeing all that the city had to offer. Which is just how I like it. There certainly was no shortage of fun to be had.
One such evening was spent celebrating the opening of the new Tanner Goods flagship store in the Mississippi/Albina area. They hosted a night of cocktails, vinyl classics and conversation to break in their new locale—a breathtaking storefront that features the latest from the beloved Portland brand, and leads to the Wayback, a cafe and bar with a sprawling patio for mingling and taking a load off.
I couldn’t help but feel like I was transported to Palm Springs or Los Angeles, given the mid-century inspired decor, and the fashionable attendees.
As was expected, gorgeous products from Tanner Goods, Wood Lands, and Mazama ceramics were at every turn, all featuring a minimal, northwest aesthetic we've come to associate with these brands. All products display a certain amount of craftsmanship and care, which, of course, does not come cheap.
The Wayback dishes up sandwiches and snacks to compliment craft cocktails, craft beer and wine on tap. While they’re currently only open until 8pm every night, there is talk of extending hours in the future.
Vinyl will be spinning every evening from 5-8PM, so make sure to check out the newest stunner in PDX. It’s the perfect spot to chill after a day of shopping in North Portland.
