Clyde Common was a restaurant and market in Portland, Oregon, United States.[1] The business opened in 2007. In 2020, Clyde Common closed temporarily due to the COVID-19 pandemic, reopening in July with outdoor dining and as a market. The bar and restaurant became known as Clyde Tavern, and the part of the former dining area was called Common Market.[2] Clyde Common closed permanently in January 2022.

Clyde Common was a semifinalist in the James Beard Foundation Award's Outstanding Bar category in 2012, 2013, and 2015, and a finalist in the same category in 2014 and each year from 2016 to 2018.[16] The restaurant was included in The Oregonian's 2017 list of Portland's best restaurants.[7] In late 2018, Brian Panganiban of Willamette Week said, "This downtown stalwart is still a hub for good food and a prime place for people watching... Clyde remains quintessential Portland cool."[17] Joe Streckert included Clyde Common in Portland Mercury's 2019 list of "100 Portland Happy Hours: Downtown".[18]
