“Classic Oregon product where quirky, quality and art come together; also enjoy live music, movies and outdoor firepits that are burning Central Oregons trade mark wood juniper. Enjoy some food and drinks, then, ask about the hidden rooms or the broom closet. You will have fun exploring this unique property anytime of year.”

Bar
“Rustic-chic and lively, Dogwood is a great place for a cocktail and tapas. Gather upstairs for a more intimate setting or stay where the action is on the lower level. We love the bacon-wrapped dates and flatbreads. Rotating menu always ensures there's something new when we go in. ”

Bar
“One of my favorites. A small cozy place with a very hip feel. It can get crowded but full of friendly Bendites and visitors. Soft couches along the wall with a big screen upstairs with ongoing scenes of skiing, skating, surfing etc... Scratch Cocktails...My favorite is the Blue Velvet (Blueberry infused Vodka w/muddled vodka soaked blueberries, Herba Matte, Lemonade, and a splash of soda). If your with a group ask about the Barrel of Peril 😜 ”
