Meetings & Parties
This former behind-the-scenes Bagdad Theater staging area
now hosts parties in our upper rooms, televises sports events
on the big screen, and offers other public events.
Since 1927, when Universal Studios spared little expense to build this ornate building, the Bagdad Theater has featured an incredible array of performances ranging from bawdy vaudeville acts to Technicolor motion picture extravaganzas. And in 2006, McMenamins renovated the Bagdad's immense back stage area, literally the room behind the Bagdad screen, to become one of the coolest (and tallest) bars in Portland, rising an astounding seven stories high. Today, the bar features beautiful artwork, pool tables, a full bar and genial conversation.
Reserve one of two upper rooms (or both of them!) for groups up to 50 – each space has a full-size pool table with tables and seating. A full catering menu is available for groups of 15 or more upon request. After your event, your guests can wander a few steps down the street to Greater Trumps to enjoy a cigar and a tumbler of scotch or around the corner to the Bagdad Theater & Pub for perhaps a movie, live music or comedy act!
The Back Stage Bar is for guests 21 and over.
