East Burnside

830 E. Burnside St.,
United States,

Part of the retro-hip Jupiter Hotel, this dark and quirkily furnished music club and lounge has been one of the key cultivators of Portland’s white-hot indie-music scene. A steady mix of rock and alternative bands is booked here, and quite a few of them (including Spoon and The Decemberists) have gone on to stardom. Log walls and ceilings, kitschy, futuristic lighting, and low-slung 50’s-era tables and lounge chairs impart a Jetsons-meets-Paul Bunyan aesthetic.
