Shopping and Dining in the Pearl
With its high concentration of chic boutiques and restaurants, the Pearl has become a city-wide destination for shopping and dining. In addition to name-brand retail stores like Anthropologie and Madewell. From upscale and minimalist to down-to-earth and eclectic, the Pearl has a wide variety of stylish decor shops; Hive Modern is a local favorite. For our book lovers there is our famous Powell Books and for the sport activist, REI. Dining options are many and include classic Mediterranean fare at Mediterranean Exploraation Company or tapas at Andina. This town’s loves its microbrew, so it’s no surprise that 10 Barrel Brewery and Deschutes Brewery each have their own brewpub outposts in the area.
Nightlife and the Arts
Well known for its vibrant arts scene, the Pearl is home to many galleries, some well-established like Elizabeth Leach, and PDX Contemporary, for instance. The galleries stay open late and throw open their doors to the community once a month for First Thursday, a popular Portland institution and the largest of its kind in the Northwest. In addition to the visual arts, one can partake in a performance at Portland Center Stage at the Armory.
Everyday Living in the Pearl
More than a destination for nightlife and commerce, the Pearl is a complete neighborhood with an abundance of everyday amenities, including grocery stores Whole Foods in the Pearl and Safeway, a number of banks, a hardware store such as Ace Pearl Hardware, , dry cleaning, and more. The Pearl also features an array of spas, salons and wellness centers, notably Pearl Pilates Studio and Kanani Pearl Spa . For our animal lovers which are many and loved in the Pearl there is the Pearl Animal Hospital . Walkers, bikers, and joggers enjoy using the many paths along Pearl’s North Park Blocks, Downtown’s Tom McCall Waterfront Park and over off of Northwest 23rd Forest Park the nation’s largest park within city limits. Though known to attract many young urban professionals and empty Nester’s, the Pearl increasingly houses families with young children, to the point where Portland Public Schools has opened a satellite elementary school in the area. Existing elementary schools in the vicinity include Childpeace Montessori , Emerson Charter School, and Chapman Elementary.
Geography and Transportation
It’s easy to navigate the Pearl. Avenues, which run north to south, are ordered such that street numbers increase as you move west from the river. The first letter of east-west street names go by the alphabet; as you move north from Burnside, you’ll find Couch St, then Davis St, and so on to Yeon St. This logical grid scheme makes it easy to find a particular intersection. The Portland Streetcar puts Downtown and Portland State University a convenient, 4-minute ride away and puts shopping along trendy NW 23rd Ave within striking distance. The area is well served by public transportation; one can catch the MAX as well as many of Tri-met’s bus routes along the bus mall on NW 5th and 6th.
