Neighborhoods: Northwest District, Neighbors West - Northwest
Under new ownership, but still a decent variety of local shows. Many of the shows are all ages, so get used to drinking your beer bellied up to the bar, instead of holding it at your side while tapping a foot front row.
This place has it all – Slabtown is at the nexus of all that's wonderful with entertainment and alcohol.
Super nice for club atmosphere – Not only do the Slabtown folks host rocking shows for the peeps in pdx, they are a regional rock outpost.
Worth checking out for shows and for many rad pinball machines.
Slabtown: Rock Pinball City – Portland, OR -
I found another pinball palace with beer. They even have a ping pong table, and many pinball machines.
This NW Portland pub rules, and they have a full bar with stiff cocktails. A full sound system and stage for bands, I'll be back.
Pleasant For Rocking on FREE Shows WEDNESDAY 4-1 – Cool shows low dough or No Dough on Wednesdays. This is April the first, but not an April Fools.
Just a coincidence.
SLABTOWN: great place for Ping-Pong – Got some beers quiclky most the time, Ping-Pong action was fast and Furious. Competition from all around showing their stuff on the table-tennis crew's cruise.
Rock Party – An air hockey table, mucho pinball, and a Ping-Pong table, Nice! I cannot state for sure the number of times this place has saved me from an awful day. Way to go - and even in the middle of setting-up for a show tonight, they managed to keep everybody well serviced at Slabtown.
Cheap Eats, hot Jukebox, strong cocktails. – So someone puts his putz in your shot. Alcohol destroys germs, duh. Anyway, this is the kind of place you want to be drinking in on a beautiful Saturday afternoon when most of the fanooks in this town are running around in spandex or going to yogaltes or a farmers market.
I liked it before - I like it now. – I was a regular before the recent change in ownership - and I loved the old staff, the vibe, the whole shebang.
It's changed a lot; the new owners have expanded the menu, and they open earlier. Still a great place for a drink, or to catch some live tunes.
I miss the old staff, but the new bartenders are trying pretty hard to keep it flowing.
Editorial Review by Ivy Manning – Part big-screen TV sports bar and part live music venue, this hideaway caters to everyone in the northwest neighborhood.
football weekend – This is the best kept secret in the Portland sports bar scene. The service is ok, but if you are a regular or just plain tip well, its the best in town. Allen is the bartender on saturday and sunday, and loves Georgia football. The best hamburger in town is the slab, and there is only one place you can get it. Hidden treasure for sure, 16th and Marshall
