Nestled in old Sellwood, the Black Cat Tavern is sporty and spacious, festive and nostalgic. You can spot the tavern easily by looking for the large, black feline face in the front window. It doesn’t take long to realize that the bar has been a longtime local hangout for those who like to unwind after a day’s work with a game of shuffleboard and some billiards. The abundance of shuffleboard tables (three) and white boards indicates that Black Cat patrons enjoy a little competition with their after-work ale. To mitigate drunken debacles, the bar stops serving pitchers after 9 pm on Fridays and Saturdays. LEIGHTON COSSEBOOM.
