Did you know the White Eagle is called "one of the most haunted places" in Portland? Keep an eye on your beer...

Set in North Portland's industrial neighborhood, underneath the mighty span of the Fremont Bridge, the legendary White Eagle Cafe and Rock 'n' Roll Hotel echoes with tall tales of resident spirits, poker games and Shanghai tunnels, as it has since its opening in 1905.

Originally a hub for Portland's Polish immigrants, today the place is known for its vintage charm and nightly rock 'n' roll shows.The Holy Modal Rounders and blues man Robert Cray helped launch the bar's live music tradition. Others like the Isley Brothers, ZZ Top and Big Walter Horton were followed in the '80s by Northwest music icons Paul deLay, Curtis Salgado, Norman Sylvester, Steve Bradley and more.    

Upstairs, the Eagle's 11 original guestrooms offer simple charm. Named for a variety of Holy Modal Rounder tunes, historic photos of the band's performances line the walls and painted lyric adorn the walls of each room. With its nightly live music tradition, the hotel is not for the light sleeper!
  
An outdoor beer garden is popular during warmer months and inside the Saloon, a massive oak back-bar serves up McMenamins' handcrafted ales, wines and spirits along with a menu of pub fare. The original ceramic-tiled floor, corner stage and artwork all contribute to the strong sense of places that envelopes visitors to this Portland legend.
  
After a Blazers game or a concert at the Rose Garden or a tradeshow at the Convention center, guests hop the MAX Yellow Line that drops them off a mere block away.
