QUARTER NOTE

CREATED BY TWENTY FOUR 7

Twenty Four 7 logo image

How do you love to spend your time? For us, it’s celebrating all the passions that make up our lives–the inspiration that drives each of us, all the time. It’s when we have access to the things that matter to us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week that we are most fulfilled–we are our best self.

That’s why we created the Quarter Note. It’s a seasonal offering of the experiences that we crave, in the city that we chose – Portland. These quick, curated “notes” are here for a moment and then gone, folded into the melodies of our lives. Whether you’re visiting the Rose City for the first time or call this place home, we want to help you find your moment. Take a look and see what fuels the things you love.
