While The Coop has under gone major renovations in the recent years the existing structure built in 1922 is largely unchanged. Prior to our ownership, the building was a home-based leather press operation that manufactured gloves and other accessories for local agencies, which included the Portland Police Bureau.

The building during the 70’s

As a fifth generation Oregonian Solomon Pilip-Florea did not want to change the feel of the historic building totally. He undertook this project, then a vacant residential house (otherwise a dilapidated neighborhood nuisance) and restored the structure into a beautiful oasis for the Arbor Lodge neighborhood to enjoy.  With the end result in mind, the Pilip-Florea family envisioned a nice quaint family friendly Rotisserie Restaurant where neighbors could meet, kids could play, all while enjoying some fantastic food and drinks.

The renovated building

With two recent additions into their family the Pilip-Florea’s have chosen to re-envision their concept.   They are offering their facility to host events such as, weddings, family celebrations, and corporate gatherings. As a full service facility: commercial kitchen, full bar, ample seating and a fully enclosed landscape backyard, The Coop is a perfect atmosphere for life’s special events and gatherings.
