Warm up with the magic of the North.

Craft cocktails, Scandinavian-inspired food, and everything good about colder climates: In Portland, Maine, Andrew and Briana Volk welcome guests into their restaurant like it’s an extension of their home. It's here, in the James Beard-nominated Portland Hunt + Alpine Club, that they create innovative cocktails like Lunar Phases (an award-winning riff on the gin and tonic) and the Norseman (a Scandinavian old-fashioned of sorts, with aquavit). They've also perfected the classics behind the bar, from the Pimm’s Cup to hot buttered rum.

After the drinks, Northern Hospitality moves on to food inspired by both Portland and Scandinavia. The bar snacks are addictive—green chile popcorn and smoked trout deviled eggs are just the beginning. Smorgasbords feature gravlax, homemade pretzels, and fresh cider pickles. On a cold northern day, Swedish meatballs with spaetzle and nutmeg cream are sure to warm you up. Or go further from the known and try the clams with absinthe and bottarga.

Features on ice fishing, shucking oysters, how to build a bonfire, and après-ski provide a sense of place and an experience as unique as the club itself.

With Northern Hospitality,celebrate the seasons the way those in the north do: with the warmth, fun, and a sense of wonder.
