We have exciting news! We’ve reclaimed what we believe to be the ORIGINAL $3 Deweys sign!

But we need your help. Although we believe this to be the original sign from when we opened in 1980, we’ve been unable to find any proof. That’s where you come in…

We are awarding $10 Deweys gift cards to anyone who can find us a photo that shows where this sign was originally hanging.

Dust off that old photo album, scan it with your phone, and submit a digital copy of the photo in the form below.

How the Original Sign Came Home 

A kind gentlemen in western Massachusetts was clearing out the basement of a foreclosed property. When we found the sign, he looked up the name, found our bar’s website, and reached out to see if we wanted it. We accepted with a smile and sent an employee down to retrieve it. 

After bringing this piece of Portland history back home, we proudly hung it in our in our larger group event space. We absolutely love having it back home as it is a tribute to the rich history of Deweys.
