    If you get the chance to see a show you're interested in here, don't miss it! I've been to two concerts here and they were both amazing. The place has a really cool vintage feel to it too!

    Come here for good music from well-known performers and local bands alike. They also hold a regular "80s Video Dance Attack" on most Friday or Saturday nights.

    No, that's not an earthquake. Just the whole room shaking as they get into the music. To my knowledge this 3rd floor ballroom has never collapsed due to excessive rocking.

    Potentially lacks air conditioning but serves free water in the back (at least for the show I went to). Beautiful venue overall.

    Free tour at 2:00 on Saturday. Do it's also, Ringler's has some of the best beer.

    The main room features a mechanical floating dance floor, thought at the time of building to be the only one on the W. Coast, and potentially the only one still in existence.

    Drinks are wayyyy overpriced. $3.25 PBR is your best bet. Otherwise, fantastic venue! Amazing acoustics.

    Friday is 80s night. Sat is 90s night. These dance parties get wild and entertaining.

    Grab a bite and/or drink at Ringler's before your show and line up to get in before the front doors open.

    This venue kinda sucks. McMenamins is always disorganized, doors open late and the service is terrible. Luckily for them our favorite bands play here often. But I seriously question why!?!

    Go somewhere else to see your favorite bands. It's mainly standing-room-only (on a level floor, so the view is limited) over-priced drinks in plastic cups, and they pack the place full. Meh.

    Why, why, why are the acoustics in this place so bad? Seriously, no bands should ever book this place.
