Abigail Hall

“The space was the originally a ladies reception hall, in a conveniently hip pink-and-green color scheme — the current aesthetic of the bar is modeled after the original design, from the floor tile to the original capitals framing the bar’s doors. It was International Women’s Day, and Quist started doing some research into important women in Portland history — she eventually found Abigail Scott Duniway, a Portland-based women’s suffrage activist. She could see her there, in the Cornelius Hotel lounge. That’s what she wanted to recreate: something strong, but feminine.” - Brooke Jackson-Glidden
