Club 21... still holding on. Even though the shows have dwindled down this is still a rad spot. My GF and I love the build your own burgers. YUMMY. Check out their DJ nights. Always playing really solid garage and punk jams.

I came here for Portland Burger Week 2013 out of curiosity to try this unique looking Perkin burger, which was sort of a burger meets french dip style concoction I'd heard good things about. I was surprised when I pulled up because it looked like a strip club on the outside, but I thought hey - let's give this thing a whirl (namely, all the other burger joints were sold out and I was freaking starving! There was a line to order at the bar, which I totally understand because hey - it's Burger Week! Portlanders take their burgers seriously. I ordered our burgers (fries or onion rings were only $1 to add on which was awesome!) - it wasn't until after I had my beer (boneyard IPA for the win!) that she told us it'd be an hour wait. Damn! I was so hungry I wish I'd known before she'd poured my beer, but we went ahead and waited. True to form, it was exactly one hour by the time we got our food, but the server was so polite and nice despite the rush, it was all good. The burger was actually super yummy! (or maybe I was just really hungry?) But I probably wouldn't go back here, which is why I give it 3 stars. It's a dive bar, and we couldn't sit on the patio because there were so many people smoking up a storm. It's super dark and small and full of ash trays and video poker, which just isn't my style. But if that's your style - definitely check this place out! While I liked the burger, I don't know if I'd ever order it again - I think I'll opt for the more traditional burger and then get a french dip when I'm feeling it - rather than combine the two.

A comfy little dive bar that specializes in burgers and beer. There is a patio out back that is mainly for smokers and few pinball machines inside. The crowd is mainly regulars from around the neighborhood, and the place is packed in the evening on the weekends. All the burgers are quite delicious, my personal favorite being the Shadow Burger. The beer menu is small, but quality; mixed drinks are subpar. Great place to swing by after work.

Club 21 has become my go-to bar for strong drinks and consistently solid bar food (and a legitimate build-your-burger menu) . It's never obnoxiously crowded and the staff is super friendly. Pro-tip: they do bottomless mimosas on the weekends for $10.

Surprisingly good. Great food, for $6 the burger is awesome. Cheap drinks - a $4.50 Vodka Redbull. Docked it a star because the music sucks. If you're the "Portlandia" type, you'll love the music.

I first visited back in 2007 when it was often mistaken as a seedy strip club or a weird Hansel & Gretel death trap. 5 years later and it's still mistaken as a seedy strip club, but no, there are wonders to behold. Club 21 was magical for me because it was the first bar on the West Coast that I was able to smoke in and wasn't a Korean bar in a strip mall. It was a dive in the most classic sense. Wood paneling, shitty pinball, velvet painting and other shitty paintings, a fairly old big screen, and food that came out of a box into a deep fryer and down into my gullet. The clientele was a mix of old regulars and the ever-invading hipster. The whiskey was poured high and the PBR flowed cheaply. It was the perfect place to have a drink, ignore the world, and fall deeper into your impending alcoholism. I loved it. Then it got bought by the owners of Gold Dust Meridian and closed for a while. I was worried. Would there be fishbowl drinks now? A schmancy food menu? Good looking women?Fortunately, the owners knew what they were doing and knew what they had in their hands. A friendly dive. They cleaned up the place, got rid of the lottery machines that had broken so many dreams, and extended the patio into something more welcoming than an iron fence. The wood paneling is still there, the whiskey is still poured high, and the clientele remains friendly and warm. My only complaint? Too many bands now, just let me drink.
