Tanner Creek Tavern is Portland chef and restaurateur David Machado’s newest concept for the Pearl District. Slated for a late summer opening in a 5,000 square foot space located at NW 9th and Everett, adjacent to the new Hampton Inn Suites. Tanner Creek is a classic David Machado project.

The décor in the dining room, lounge area, bar, two private dining rooms, and outdoor seating, will link to the city’s early industrial history with concrete, steel, reclaimed Douglas Fir beams, tile, and glass.

Tanner Creek was named for an old tannery built by an early Portland settler in 1845. It still traces an underground path beneath the Pearl and flows into the Willamette River near the Broadway Bridge.
