Beginning with nothing but a gravel floor and badly worn exterior walls, crews installed a new structural steel mezzanine and raised existing concrete floors in the kitchen area to match the dining space. Renovations also included extensive mill work, an architectural metal package and an innovative synthetic veneer that was used to “paint the bricks” back on the walls which had been covered by concrete. Special features and innovative details make the tavern attractive as a city gathering place. Connected to the mezzanine level in the bar is a massive cooler that contains the kegs for all 101 beer selections and is suspended from the ceiling above the rectangular-shaped granite-topped bar, which also includes a frozen drink rail, the first of its kind in Portland. In order to meet the schedule and to minimize disturbances to other tenants in the building, night shift crews were added to complete any excessively noisy or disruptive work.
Henry’s 12th Street Tavern
Henry’s 12th Street Tavern is a 14,500 SF restaurant and billiards room constructed in the historic Henry Weinhardt’s Brewhouse and Cellar Buildings.
“Pacific Coast Restaurants, Inc. negotiated a contract with Walsh to build Henry’s Twelfth Street Tavern. We are pleased to say they did an outstanding job from start to finish.
This was a difficult project because of the time constraints, dealing with an old historic building in a downtown environment, and working next to adjacent tenants. In spite of all the obstacles, they were able to meet our scheduled completion date and turn out a beautiful restaurant.” - Mark Colcord Director of Construction Pacific Coast Restaurants
