Live Entertainment

Come for the drinks, stay for the entertainment

Visitors may come to the city seeking a hand-crafted lager, top-shelf pour, or an excellent wine – but they will often find they stay for the fun. Portland is the ideal place to take in live entertainment and enjoy area nightlife.

Downtown, the Old Port is a live entertainment destination, with venues lining the cobblestone streets. A stroll "Uptown” provides even more choices of wine and jazz bars and intimate settings to enjoy acoustic, indie, or progressive live music. Downtown comedy clubs and galleries-turned-performance-settings are part of the diversity of choices to pair with the drink of your choice.

Local pubs and clubs have regular bookings of some of the best regional talent, including local musicians, national acts, and comedians. As a city that embraces a diversity of musical styles, visitors can expect everything from rockabilly to progressive indie to African jazz. Enjoy raucous hard-driving performances or more personal concert experiences in intimate bar settings or on the decks of seaside restaurants. And, while live entertainment heats up on Fridays and Saturdays, pubs and clubs in the city schedule events all week. Expect Karaoke, trivia nights, retro nights, PechaKutcha events, and musical or spoken word open mics to fill local event calendars.
