Offering an unexpected perspective on Portland’s urban cityscape, including a bird’s-eye view of bridges and distant mountain peaks, Departure Restaurant + Lounge opened on the 15th floor of the luxury hotel, the Nines. This innovative bistro features a roof top outside seating area with breathtaking views. With a pair of large skylight atrium assemblies and a magical east-facing window, the combination of natural light and creative interior lighting makes for an ever-changing display on the various finishes. The midsection is anchored by a unique bar assembly that provides the centerpiece for the dining areas. As the light changes throughout the day and night, so do the focus and the attraction within the design.
