Union WayA European-style arcade right across the street from the Ace Hotel in downtown Portland, this mod mini-mall serves up a mélange of excellent retail and food options. Danner’s boot emporium is an ode to the lumberjack way of life—or at least a source for snagging the same boots Reese Witherspoon wore in Wild—while Spruce Apothecary features high-end grooming essentials for men and other sweet-smelling items. After shopping, order a bowl of noodles from Boxer Ramen and dessert from Wailua Shave Ice or Quin Candy and you’ll have had a satisfying outing in the space of a single block.
