Portland isn’t the best city for all-ages music. With the collective storm of its archaic liquor control commission, gentrification, and a microbrew culture that caters first and foremost to people over 21, spaces for young musicians and music lovers are hard to come by. Black Water Bar really is a singularity: It’s open to kids, books the best local and touring punk bands, and serves alcohol to older patrons. Black Water Bar is becoming one of the city’s best smaller venues, all-ages or otherwise. It’s also one of the best, reasonably priced vegan dining spots in town. CAMERON CROWELL
