Essay question: Why should I drink here?
The dream of the ’90s is alive at Bullitt Bar – not the Portlandia one, the one that features flocks of tattooed girls in baby tees and pigtails and walls packed with collectible gig posters. The naked-lady wallpaper (better than Wally’s, and that’s high praise), the beer cooler housed in the back end of a ’70s van (painted with, yep, boobalicious ladies) and the booths done up in muscle-car seat upholstery make Bullitt look like a Vegas reconstruction of an “LA rocker bar,” but don’t overthink it – this is a hangout for strong drinks, loud music and big dumb fun.
