Intimate venue to see live music. Great acoustics, plenty of room to move and dance. Great little restaurant/bar attached. Huge bonus is the outdoor area with firepit and covered area, with a bar window available to order drinks and snacks from. Occasionally artists have been hanging outside with patrons. Love this place!

Saw a Johnny cash tribute act here on a fri eve. Great atmosphere , great burgers (small but perfectly formed and just right for a pre gig meal), great beer, friendly staff. I couldn't fault the place!

If you want an intimate show with great acoustics - check out this place! You feel like you are apart of the show. I have seen several bands come through town here, and it's by far one of my absolute favorites. You can go here to get a drink and hang out with your friends, or pay to go see... More

This is a fantastic venue to watch a live show in a super intimate environment. I have attended a number of shows here and it never fails to impress.

If I could take bits and pieces of Portland in my pocket, this venue would occupy half of that space. My husband and I came to see the Donkeys on our last night of our Portland trip. I am in awe of the intimacy of the venue and the sounds displayed!

Portland, you don't know how good you have it! This is an awesome venue on so many levels. My wife and I saw an amazing solo show with Rhett Miler. If this show was in LA, it would be packed, the tickets would be twice as much, and the beers would be far more than $5. The sound here is... More

Went by for a couple of drinks on a Saturday before dinner. Nice place and decent selection, but they were obsessed with IDs for everyone. We're in our mid 30s and still needed to show ID for everything. We even had to get a stupid stamp on the hand to verify age just for sitting outside.

Well planned space with good acoustics and a warm, friendly ambience. We also tried their food before the show started. Great experience at an affordable price.

Truly the best music venue in Portland. Great acts in a small, accessible stage area which is mostly standing, but with seating upstairs. A good selection of beers in the studio, along with simple eats next door in the restaurant. A friendly place to meet the bands before and after their sets.

My wife and I tried to go on Ausgust 23, but to no avail. The host did not accept our drivers licenses, demanding our passport, which hadn' t happened in any of the music venues we' ve been on our 3 week trip in the West coast. We are on our mid THIRTIES! I was sooo desappointed. Really poor treatment... More
