Popular downtown gay club because of it's big open deck space (heated in the winter, cooled in the summer), sunken dance floor and hot boys. Connected to it's sister bar Boxxes and restaurant the Fish Grotto through a long dark hallway allowing you to have the best of both worlds.
Located in the Jupiter Hotel complex, the Doug Fir Lounge -located below the restaurant and bar, is like a super-cool log cabin bunker from the future. Playing host to some of the best touring and local bands it is by far one of the most unique music venues in the pacific northwest. The gorgeous log cabin-themed diner hosts a variety of musical events on their lower level, so you can see a show, drink a cosmo, and eat a "Fir Burger" all at the same place, then pass out in a swank room at the Jupiter Hotel just next door. The popular happy hour boasts some of the best cheap bar food in town, but get there early if you want to get a seat, because the lounge fills up quick with well-heeled urbanites.
Hip, happenin' warehouse space in hip, happenin' Southeast Portland. Holocene is host to both DJs and bands. With two large rooms and one long bar, it's a great place to shake your booty or bob your head.
Fancy-yet-casual neighborhood (predominately gay) bar featuring two nicely appointed rooms. The main bar is comfortable and intimate and there's a dining room/dance floor area. A smallish yet decent menu of comforting food with casseroles, skewers, sandwiches, salads, and snacks. Lots of vegetarian and vegan options will keep everyone in your party happy. Tuesday is all-day happy hour, DJs do their thing most evenings. Crush also serves brunch on Saturdays and Sundays until 3pm.
