"St. Gregory St: A Great Place to Party!"

I personally love St. Gregory St., though I may be biased. I grew up on this street, as my parents owned and operated the Café Vienna, which was located here. Right next to the Blind Lemon, the Mt. Adams Bar & Grill, and other local favorites, the Café Vienna was a popular hang-out spot for those seeking some personal space and good Austrian/German cuisine. Though I was young when I lived here, and the Café Vienna no longer exists, I still spend time on this street today.

If you visit on a weekend, you'll be shocked by the number of people flooding the street. I think it's a great place to spend an evening--for example, I came here on my 21st birthday. If you're celebrating an event (I often see bachelorette parties take place here) or If you're simply looking for a fun place with laid-back bars, restaurants, and hang-outs, this might be the place for you. If, however, you're not into a great nightlife scene and are looking for something more peaceful, you should probably look elsewhere!

"A nice place to hang out"

My fondest memories of St Gregory revolve around their art shows years ago. Art lovers from across the city would converge on Mt Adams to spend a leisurely day walking the streets. They no longer have those shows, but not much has really changed since then. It's still a cool street with restaurants, shopping and even a United Dairy Farmers Ice Cream store.

"Place that has it all."

One of my favorite streets in Mt. Adams. There always something to do, something to see or something going on, on this street when the weekend rolls around. There are lots of little ma and pop shops, from cafes, restaurants, bars and all kinds of different stores for whatever your shopping needs.

"One-way, always busy, not too noisy until the weekend, tons of stuff to see and do"

St. Gregory is on top of a hill in Mt. Adams. It houses many bars, restaurants, hair salons, antique shops, a UDF, a coffee shop, and a few other businesses.

St. Gregory is always hoppin'. During the day, you'll see lots of people walking their dogs or walking to the restaurants or coffee shop on their breaks. At night, you'll see several people driving around trying to find parking spaces while others walk out in to the middle of the street without paying any attention to whether or not cars are actually there. There are parking garages, but people like to let out their companions and so they block the street often. You have to have a certain amount of patience to drive on St. Gregory. It's also a one-way street, and there is only parking on one side in some parts.

There are some great places to eat on St. Gregory. Tavern on the Hill has your typical tavern casual atmosphere. Most of the people who work there are really laid back and friendly. Always good drink and food specials and the food is way better than most taverns could ever hope to accomplish. The owner's cool, too.

Teak, the Thai and sushi place, is fantastic, and it's relatively inexpensive. Tons of stuff on the menu, the sushi is great, and you do get to choose your level of spiciness for your dishes.

As you travel down the hill and down the street, you start to see houses and apartment complexes. These are pretty nice places to live. Most people take care of them well.

On the weekends, St. Gregory is packed full of young adults. If you don't like noise, this is not a good place to be on the weekend. There are usually several bands around and many drunk people wandering around until all hours of the night. If you don't mind that, you'll be fine. It's not too loud during the week; it's just always busy. Since there are so many people wandering around, the street itself looks kind of ugly at times. You'll see it covered with cigarette butts, beer bottles, occasionally a used condom, and dog poop. Just watch your step and you'll be ok.

Cell phone reception is pretty lousy, but you can always stop at the UDF for ice cream on your way down the street.
