“A unique spot for a dinner and movie date!”
Reviewed January 17, 2008

This spot is a fun date night destination. Many years ago this was an elementary school but now it has been transformed into a full entertainment complex!

You have everything from the cozy school gym turned movie theatre where you can sample local beers while watching a great movie from a snuggly couch! Almost like watching a movie at home but better! They also offer some great food, the gourmet pizza by the slice is a must try.

They also have a yummy place to grab a cozy meal and even classrooms transformed into guest rooms as the school also offers a B&B option.

“Finally, you can drink and smoke in Detention!”
Reviewed July 18, 2007

What a one of a kind bar/ Hotel! It's got a little bit of everything. You can relax in the old gymnasium with a pitcher of beer and a pizza and watch a great movie in a comfy old recliner. You can wander the halls without a hallpass or pass through either honors or detention and have a drink. The old classrooms have been turned into hotel rooms and you can even have a soak in the pool. I definetly recommend going to Kennedy School on your next visit to Portland.
