Doug Fir Lounge

En Bloc Hotels™ | Portland | Food + Drink, Theatre + Entertainment

Perhaps one of the most diverse establishments we’ve come across, Doug Fir Lounge offers everything from breakfast to a live music room, all within the confines of the Lower Burnside’s Jupiter Hotel. With quintessential Oregon aesthetics and feel, the timber-clad space combines modern touches with an experience worthy of Special Agent Dale Cooper’s “damn good” approval. Start your day with Dungeness Crab Benedict and bottomless Sisters Coffee, a hearty Candied Bacon Burger during happy hour, or choose from an extensive dinner menu served late. Besides the obligatory selection of choice beer + wine, Doug Fir Lounge’s cocktail program takes the local route and solely employs “Oregon’s Best Booze” from distilleries such as New Deal and Clear Creek. Add a venue that has showcased the likes of Nicolas Jaar’s Darkside to Cake, and Alabama Shakes to make this one of our favorite spots in the Pacific Northwest. Read More


The Casbah

En Bloc Hotels™ | San Diego | United States | Theatre + Entertainment

From Tom Tom Club and Nirvana to Postal Service, Crystal Castles and every brilliant up-and-comer, this bar venue has a stage with more stories than any other in town. The Casbah first opened in 1989, hosting bands in a room with a 72 person max capacity, then moved to its current home down the street in Little Italy for a bit more space. The venue is a popular stopover for musicians of all genres and tour van sizes. Even if you don’t recognize the name on the bill, the evening’s set is sure strike a chord. The place is also great for a night of dancing, a game of pinball, and a music chat with locals out for a drink. Read More
