Vault Cocktail Lounge is so proud to have Chef Zack Cooper providing magic in our kitchen.  Zack’s focus is on using fresh local ingredients for our dinner, happy hour, and late night food menu.  We know that our neighbors in Portland’s Pearl District are looking for high quality seasonal dinner options.  We believe our dinner options are some of the best meals of any cocktail bar in the Pearl (or Portland for that matter).  Our philosophy when we opened Vault Cocktail Lounge was the belief that way too often we’re asked to choose between amazing cocktails and amazing dinner.  This means that we either sacrifice the best cocktails for the best dinner or the best dinner for the best cocktails.  Right from the start we knew we wanted to provide both.  Just like our cocktails, our food program begins with the freshest ingredients available and under the expertise of Chef Zack, dinner dishes are developed that complement our cocktails.

Whether you’re looking for the best burger, amazing shareable food options, light snacks, comfort food, or great happy hour and late night food deals, Chef Zack and his kitchen team have you covered.  We know you have many amazing restaurants to choose from in Portland and especially the Pearl District.  You know and love us for our craft cocktails, allow us to amaze you with our dinner.

What People are Saying

“food was o, so good”

“We had a big ol’ party here this past Sunday, and it was a blast! The space is beautiful. The staff so accommodating. And the food was o, so good. I have always just come here for the cocktails, so I was so impressed by the delicious platters of squash and cheese and eggplant. Thank you to all the staff who worked extra hard to make this evening one to remember! We will definitely be hosting more parties here in the future.”


“You won’t be disappointed”

“Under new management with an entirely new (and better!) menu of drinks and amazing food! I cannot recommend enough the burger and also the spinach artichoke dip. Also, I didn’t know brussel sprouts could taste so good?!! The cocktails are also delicious and the staff super nice. Go here. You won’t be disappointed.”


“fantastic food, elevated to the quality of the drinks”

“Ambience is great for date kick-off or after work.  Cocktails are exceptional as you would expect at a craft cocktail lounge.  But here’s the happy surprise:  fantastic food, elevated to the quality of the drinks. Kudos to chef Zach. Backlit bar and fireplace add to the mood.  A neighborhood gem. Do not miss.”


“can’t recommend this place enough!”

“Went out with girlfriends and can’t recommend this place enough! Spencer was awesome and really made our night! Outstanding service and his recommendations on drinks were superb! The drinks, ambience and customer service were all 10/10! Definitely will return when back in Portland!”
