The Zipper

A laptop-friendly space in Portland


The Zipper is great for working in an open environment and eating some seriously great grub. There's a covered indoor space with 10 metal tables for small groups. The outside area has eight group tables and six individual tables (or two people). Housed inside are tasty restaurants and a coffee shop: Rua, Slice Pizza Company, ChickPeaDX, Bywater Grocery, Seven Virtues Coffee Roasters, and Paydirt. Free wifi is typically 12-18 Mb/s. No outlets outside but some inside individual restaurants. It gets more crowded at lunch and closer to 5pm, especially on Fridays. People occasionally smoke outside.

People are saying  

  • There are zero outlets in the main indoor seating area… there may be some at some of the small counters/tables inside the individual restaurants, but otherwise you have to go to the coffee shop (seven virtues–2 outlets)

  • halfstring’s note from Dec 11th is accurate and still true today.
