This NW Portland property was purchased by C.E. John Company, Inc. in the summer of 2013. It is home to the venerable Joe’s Cellar, a favorite neighborhood dive bar and local hang out dating back to the 1940s.
The bar was closed down in the spring of 2013 by the City of Portland due to structural problems with the building, so C.E. John developed a plan to repair the building and bring Joe’s back to the neighborhood.
Repairs of the building have been completed by James E. John Construction Company and Joe’s Cellar reopened August 2, 2013.
