Don't accompany your women friends out so that they can be safe, especially toward the end of the night. They won't let you back in. Actually, we hadn’t even walked out the door. So much for ensuring safety of women in a sketchy neighborhood of...More

This is by far the best place to go dancing. Friday nights the Crystal Ballroom has 80's night and it is just a blast!! They have a suspended floor that is original. Check before hand - the 80's night might be on the floor below.

Went to see George Clinton the other night with a friend. The sound was terrible. Couldn't hear anything but bass and drums. After a few songs, we went downstairs to the bar and watched the video stream. Very disappointing.

Fabulous venue for a concert. Well organized, great lighting & effects, and great sound. The floating dance floor is so much easier on your knees & joints... so you're not achy the next day after jumping around all night! Lots of cool artwork & history...More

We travelled to Portland to see the new years show by Brandi Carlile who always seems to pick cool venues and this is no exception. My biggest complaint is that the stage is too low, and while I'm 5'11" and didnt really have too much...More
