Just look for the enormous torches and you'll find an all-ages music venue in the space formerly occupied by Conan's. There is a nice, cozy bar next door, which is a great place for parents and drinkers to hang out while the kiddies enjoy the show right down the hall. A wide variety of food from snacks to full-on dinners is available for your dining pleasure.
Serving: scotch eggs, bangers, fish-n-chips, pasties, and other British homestyle food along with a few not-so-British specials to soak up an impressive selection of American and import beers on tap. Don't forget: single malt scotches as well as dart lanes for a true public house experience.
Three-level concert/event hall is one of Portland's larger venues. Showcasing diverse touring acts of many genres from bluegrass to hiphop to emo and even "rock 'n' roll." If you're seeing a show here, arrive early since the line to get frisked and scanned can be pretty lengthy.
This divey downtown hot spot is great for post-drinking grease intake. Watch punks, drag queens, tourists and businessmen chow down breakfast, lunch, and dinner. All items are offered 24 hours a day... not a common trait in Portland, so enjoy it when you can.
Rocco's is downtown's indie rock pizza spot. Eat extra cheesy slices, drink cheap beer, stare at Zoobombers on the crazy Burnside corner.
Cool upper floor dance club/music venue with a Middle Eastern/Persian vibe. The dance floor is large, the drinks are generously poured and there are some nice couches to rest on when your feet get tired. Lots of good shows and regular party nights including the long-running "Shut up and Dance"
