Jazz Venues in Portland
In Portland’s historic Pearl District, railroad tracks, industries and warehouses have given way to trendy boutiques, art galleries and much more — including a jazz scene undergoing a renaissance! The Pearl is reminiscent of New York’s Soho or Old City, Philadelphia, with echoes of Greenwich Village, The French Quarter, D.C.’s Georgetown and Kansas City’s 18th & Vine district – all neighborhoods that have at one time or another supported a lively jazz scene.
The Pearl District has also seen Camellia Lounge present an impressive mix of local artists. “The Camellia Lounge has been presenting jazz for five years in a 40-50 seat intimate setting,” says co-owner Jhanne Jasmine. “We’ve had positive response from our customers on how personal and close they feel with the music.”
Since 1975, Wilf’s Restaurant and Bar in the historic Union Station has been a fixture on the club scene. “It’s a coup for us that our local artists are highly regarded nationally,” states Wilfs’ co-owner Adele Nofield. “They often perform with the touring artists and in turn the national performers enjoy sitting in with our local artists.”
