The Lovecraft is the original Lovecraft horror themed dance bar located in sunny Portland, Oregon. Please see the calendar page for upcoming events. Open for 3 years now, we pay tribute to the world of horror in all of its forms with Lovecraft and classic horror inspired and local art and decor. We have been voted 2 years in a row by Portland as having some of the top 10 best dance nights from 80s, 90s, industrial, goth, punk, alternative, post punk, dark electro, & EBM. When it's not a dance night, you can expect metal, burlesque, and ritual performance art, live music, art classes, tarot readings, music videos and have readings by local authors. We have also been voted top 9 most unique bars in the world (blush) and top ten bars in the galaxy (blush more). Check the calendar page for event and dance night details. Located at 421 SE Grand Portland OR 97214..... Sun. -Thurs. 8pm to close. Fri. & Sat. 4pm to close. We have no affiliation with any other Lovecraft bars and it is not a chain.
