The Lovecraft Bar, Portland
Portland’s Lovecraft Bar is a dance joint for the inner goth kid in all of us. Named for horror author H.P. Lovecraft, Lovecraft Bar is basically a year-round Halloween party, complete with live music, burlesque shows, tarot readings, and ritual performance art (don’t ask). They also have some of the best dance nights in Portland, encompassing the best of ’80s and ’90s industrial, goth, punk, alternative, post punk, dark electro and EBM.
What to order:
Toast Cthulu with a Cthulu. Or, hell, just straight absinthe.
