Once the Portland Press Herald’s busy city room, Inkwell echoes the energy and intellect of its former occupants. You can tap into that energy and turn Inkwell into your satellite office with our coffee bar that serves up espresso, cappuccinos, lattes and more, along with delicious pastries, everything you need to get a job done. If you're here for play, we recommend one of our hand-crafted vintage cocktails or Portland microbrews or one of our small plates. Our lobby space features tables emblazoned with Press Herald headlines spanning 150 years.
