The Ringlers Annex 1917 flatiron structure was billed as the smallest commercial building on the West Coast at the time of its construction. Today, its cozy subterranean setting offers a clandestine view of the hustle and flow on colorful West Burnside. The Annex opens to the larger expanse of Al's Den below the Crystal Hotel, named for Al Winter, Portland's gambling overlord who, in the 1940s, managed his vast empire that spanned the Pacific Northwest and into Las Vegas from this very location. Together, these spaces are an ideal spot for a casual meeting, team-building session, holiday get-together and more, for up to 80 guests. Enjoy a full bar and catering menu, along with complimentary Wi-Fi service. Available only for day use prior to 2 p.m.
