Is there a PDX bar to replace late night coffee shops?

I very much miss 24 hour coffee shops in Portland. They seem to have all closed. Is there a bar or some other venue that is similar enough to a late night coffee shop? I.e. a place where the vibes are relatively quiet and chill and it wouldn't be weird to sit for a few hours on a laptop or reading a book? And maybe that has nice non-alcoholic drink options?

For that vibe, I'd look at one of the McMenamins locations - most are quite chill. You can also find a table at Lucky Lab and hang out there for quite a while.

I don't have any particular recommendation, but I'd imagine that most hotel bars would have this sort of vibe. Like the Hotel Deluxe, for example.

I didn't realize they weren't 24 hours anymore, but Ava Roasterie's downtown Beaverton location is still open until midnight if that's helpful.

The bar at the Hotel Deluxe is lovely and the drinks are good, but at least the last time I was there, it was extremely dark. Like, could-barely-see-my-own-drink dark. So you might consider adding "enough light to read/work by" to your list of criteria.

They're only open til 11 but my pick for this would be Nalu Kava. They serve kava and tea and the like and it is a lovely quiet atmosphere. When I was there, there were several folks working and silence or quiet conversations from the rest. Nalu Kava website
