Portland's Chinatown is known as a spot for after work drinks and young club goers, and the Boiler Room differs only by having a dedicated mission of all karaoke, all the time. The drinks are quite stiff and cocktails are a very reasonable $3 before 9pm. The atmosphere is non-smoking and few customers are good enough singers to be intimidating. Thursdays are notable for free billiards all night long on two regulation tables. Standard bar fare is served until closing. Tips and regular attendance increase the frequency of your performances. Parking is difficult, so public transit is highly recommended.
Anything less than complete entertainment is just not a possibility at Darcelle XV, and no drag club in the country has enjoyed a longer run.

Fridays and Saturdays bring with them male strippers, and these shows start at 12a.

A theater that has been an inseparable part of the city since the early 1900s, the Star Theater has transformed through the ages, yet preserving its key essence of being a place that provides entertainment and culture to the city's residents.
