Thanks for the update. I haven't been back in since Timmy D and Kelley Swenson left. How are the cocktails?

I'm not into Prohibition cosplay so I'm not a good person to answer this, but they appear to be made with ingredients using methods.

By way of posting the address and hours. Here is the review from Willamette Week
14 NE 28th Ave., 239-3804. 5 pm-midnight Sunday-Thursday, 5 pm-1 am Friday-Saturday.
Angel Face is precious. The food is little and lovely from oyster to meurette—not surprising, since it’s a product of Navarre and Luce’s owners—the “wallpaper” turns out to be meticulously hand-painted, and the cocktail menu is trapped somewhere inside bar manager Kelley Swenson’s head. It’s a neat little negotiation wherein you say something terribly douchey like “I want something gin, but savory?” and he humors you with a lovely improvisation. The niceties seem almost destined to make the just-opened bar into a bit of an insiders’ club, a place that comes with an admission price of slight bewilderment, but Swenson is an enthusiastic and friendly enough drink ambassador that the process is painless. Still, it’s kind of like being inside a luxury pillbox. MATTHEW KORFHAGE.
Overall, I prefer polloelastico's review and comment.

You don't have to do the bespoke drink thing if you don't want to. They can make you a perfectly good manhattan, gin and tonic, old fashioned, etc.
