Beyond the Loft: 6 Street’s next 25 years

Long-time regulars at Sixth Street Bistro and Pub might remember that loft. The restaurant -formerly “6th Street Bistro and Loft” – has been a downtown anchor since the building was constructed in 1985. Chris and Stacie Creasy, owners since 2009, held a street party this month to mark 25 years as 6th Street (see chronology, below).

A Chat with Sixth Street Bistro

The Pacific Northwest, and Hood River specifically, have the farm to table niche down nicely. With many local options, deciding on some yummy nosh can be a difficult decision.

Hood River’s multifaceted climate is a little like Sochi’s – only without palm trees. Popularized as a windsurfing destination in the 1980s, this waterfront town in the Columbia River Gorge is blessed with mild to balmy temperatures nine months of the year, while nearby Mount Hood never runs out of snow.
