Just wait 'til you check out this cool spot, the loftiest place to play pool and drink a beer among bars in Portland. Step inside and have a gander up, waaaaay up — this hidden room behind the Bagdad Theater's screen stretches an incredible seven stories from floor to ceiling!

photoFrom 1930s vaudeville behind-the-scenes area to 1970s arthouse and hippie hangout, this place has a great history. We renovated it from top to bottom to become Hawthorne's most happening spot to play a round or two of 8-ball, relax before or after a movie or just stop by for a beer. And don't miss the huge 20-by-20-foot mural depicting the various tales, characters and memories from the Bagdad since its opening in 1927, painted by our own McMenamins artists.

Back Stage Bar allows pets at our sidewalk seating only.
