  • Dancing

    Portland Nightlife

    One thing you'll notice while out in Portland, everywhere serves food. There is few "dance clubs" or "bars" that are strictly just that. Everywhere is a pub once way or another. You can;t miss this one with the huge inflatable purple octopus on the outside of the building. The Greek Cusina is a restaurant downstairs and upstairs during lunch...

  • Outrageous

    Portland Nightlife

    Dark, red, fun! Dante's is a great spot for drinks and to catch a show. Although a bit on the "alterative entertainment side" with Sinferno Cabaret, Karaoke from Hell (live band backing you up) and a few electronica eact and erotica acts to keep you on your toes. Nothing too out there and not a goth crowd as you might expect. Fun place to catch...

    Portland Nightlife

    They say that the Meow Meow has closed but I am sure it will reopen with a new name so I am posting some pix from before the closure. None - wear anything. You will find a lot of rock-a-billy and emo types here.

  • Ethnic Pubs

    Portland Nightlife

    Kell's is the most well known Irish pub in Portland. May not be the best, but absolutely the most popular. Kell's typically has a band, loud & fun - and certainly not above pointing out a good looking woman to keep you entertained. Surprisingly large, but always crowded. Small dance floor, but you rarely see more than a few drunk soles tripping the...

  • Gay bars

    Portland Nightlife

    It's a bit on the old-fashioned side, but this is a GREAT bar for adults (real grown-ups, past college-age). The bartender (an older woman) was friendly and helpful, the drinks were generously sized and cheap, and the atmosphere was great!

  • Sports Bars

    Portland Nightlife

    It was in this sports bar in August of 2002 that I witnessed the bicycle theft. Quite an ok place to watch a game and have some drinks. The locals didn't mind me too much as I played the "knowledgeable fan" instead of a Yankee way or the highway attitude. All around a great place to go watch the game.

  • a touch of the UK with Pacific NW beer

    Horse Brass is a very authentic English style pub with a Pacific Northwest flair. Furnished much like a grotty London one, they even feature five or six hand drawn beers for good measure. If you know your beer and have been to the UK, you know those hand pumps are the badge of honor. Toss in a Scotch Egg and a Beef & Mushroom Pie and you're set to...

  • Jimmy Maks

    Popular jazz club that Downbeat Magazine ranked among the nation's best. Small enough to have a cozy, jazz club feel but large enough for you to have a reasonable shot at seating even if you get there late. I liked the trio we heard and the crowd seemed very knowledgeable. None.

    Portland is kind of an early night town, but a couple of places to try. Love punk, go to Fellini's Satyricon, in the Chinatown area. Sixth street I believe? Courtney Love's old Portland hangout. Remeber it's a punk club. If you're an Anne Rice groupie, there's the Paris theater on Fourth street I believe, just outside Chinatown (can you tell I know...

  • Produce Row

    This place is in an industrial area, but is the BEST place for an outdoor beer garden and live music. It has a lot of oregon microbrews on tap, but bring cash because they don't take ATM cards or credit. They do have an ATM but it charges a fee to use. Jeans, t-shirts, and birkenstocks! this place is NOT fancy, so wear your best pool-playing,...

    Upfront FX is a club you should not miss...(at least if you are still under 21 which happened to me while staying in the US so the selection is naturally limited...)hhmm...as mentioned above I did not have a big choice based on my young age and the fact that the try with a fake ID did not work out...so I basically only got to know two bigger Clubs...

    For live music concert - in Portland the Alhambra Theater has a great venue and has done a good job of remodelling an old movie theater. Very comfortable, good sound and an adequate beer and wine bar. If it is a full-crowd night they will have the balcony open which provides some nice viewing of the stage.Music varies from jazz to zydeco to...
