In less than two months, the neighborhood bar on the edge of Portland's West End has established itself as both a local comfort zone and a destination for those seeking an alternative to the Old Port hordes or Arts District hipsters. When she opened Little Tap House in late March, owner Lee Goyette said she was more interested in attracting neighbors than tourists, and her plan seems to be working. She didn't crowd the space with seating, opting instead to leave plenty of room for milling around tall wine barrel tables in the bar area. Obligingly, Little Tap House customers do mill about, giving the place a friendly, welcoming vibe. Most nights, Goyette or her daughter, Briana Jaro, can be found at the centrally located host stand, holding court like benevolent monarchs surveying their happy kingdom.
