Tanasbourne gets a Thirsty Lion


The Thirsty Lion Pub & Grill at the Streets of Tanasbourne will hold a grand opening event Wednesday, Nov. 27.

This opening brings a fourth Thirsty Lion location to the region and the third in the Portland metropolitan area. A ribbon cutting ceremony will take place at 10:45 a.m. with the Hillsboro Chamber of Commerce, officially welcoming Thirsty Lion to Hillsboro. The business provides a variety of multi-cultural cuisines with an emphasis on local ingredients with a focus on fresh seafood, quality meats and local vegetables and fruits.

The bar features a variety of 52 craft and imported beers as well as unique craft cocktails that combine fresh fruit purees, juices and premium liquors. The Thirsty Lion will be open seven days a week to serve lunch, happy hour, dinner and late-night menus.

“We saw plenty of economic reasons to take the Thirsty Lion Pub & Grill brand to Hillsboro,” said John Plew, CEO and president of Concept Entertainment, which owns and operates the Thirsty Lion brand. “There is a ton of momentum out there. With Intel’s new research facility, Kaiser Permanente’s Westside Medical Center as well as Nike deciding to stay, we saw gigantic economic enhancements to the area and a great opportunity to bring the Thirsty Lion to Hillsboro.”
