Best

Since moving from CA and going to a gay bar all the time with the girls fr good music and feeling comfortable being there with my friends... This was my first gay club experience ...

Worst

Just a very blah place to go out dancing, yes one side is smoke free, but the bartenders are okay, if you go by yourself, you need to be full of drama, thats all there seems to be...

Unfriendly 10/11/2010

Rude oboxious bar tenders. Overly aggressive bouncers. Very unfriendly service. I don't know if this was becasue I am straight and was there with my girlfriend, but that doesn't give casue to be rude. We have gone to any number of gay bars before all without incident. If you have a choice, try someplace else. more

new favorite dance club 3/28/2009

Since moving from CA and going to a gay bar all the time with the girls fr good music and feeling comfortable being there with my friends... This was my first gay club experience in Portland since I've moved here almost 3 years ago and it was the best girls night out EVER! Drinks were reasonable, music was great. We started out in the front dance floor and then were told to follow into a different room in the back which had even better music, bigger room with more area to dance. I cannot wait to go back there next week... Pros: loved the music, people were friendly Cons: i couldn't say... i had a blast more

OMG... This place is on fire! 3/20/2009

I went there on Friday and they have 2 dance floors that were packed. The lights in Boxxes were flashing and there were hot shot boys and dancers. Wow. I have found my new hangout. Pros: Packed Dance Floor, Best Music, Great Drinks Cons: Not enough room for more party people... more

Can't believe you can get 1.00 well drinks! 3/13/2009

Get down. 4/13/2008

This was one of the first dance bars I went to when I first moved here and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. My girl and I always have fun times here. Decent drinks, many dance floors to choose from and lots of good people watching too. I do like the fact it is non smoking, it makes it easier to dance when you are not breathing in smoky air. Everyone seems to be welcome here, even those straight people. ;) more

Friendly and fun 9/3/2006

Fun and open atmosphere, no censoring! Our Thursday evening started out slow but somehow they fit a ton of people in there. Some *creative* videos playing. Great karaoke songs and lots of lyric-screens although it was hard to see the singers from our table. Non-smoking was a huge bonus. Average drink prices, my drink was so-so, but I wasn't there for the drinks anyway. I will definitely return. Pros: Atmosphere, Karaoke Cons: Dark more

very accepting and fun! 2/27/2006

Boxxes is always a good time. THe staff is very welcoming, the drinks are strong and reasonably priced. Gay or straight it is a comfortable place to be! Dan, steve, and heather are awesome. Sunday nite bingo from 10-12 is the place to be! Off the hook fun!!! Pros: great staff, great drinks, good value more

Where are the gay guys in Portland??? Not here 9/9/2005

I was in Portland over Labor Day weekend '05. My friend and I went to Boxxes at around 10:30 Saturday night...and there were less than a dozen people in there. And this is the ""premiere"" club in Portland. There is very little gay nightlife in this city. We loved EVERYTHING else about Portland except the gay nightlife. It needs help!!!! And a $4 Long Island Iced Tea from a mix is not a drink special. Pros: Fast Service, Good Music Cons: Slow, Empty, Boring more

Good for a cheap stiff drink. 5/26/2003

All right so it's a sleezy, fake leather padded, full of queer as folks who have nothing better to do then to show off their designer clothes and look interesting. Fine. But the drinks are stiff, there always seems to be a huge crowd on thursdays and the drinks are cheap. The lines are a little ridiculous, I mean c'mon you would think with a 15-20 minute wait on thursdays that they would have one more bartender working or something. I also wish they had a dance floor. yeah sometimes it gets too crowded but eh it's fun to do every now and then. more

Halloween has arrived! 10/28/2002

While wandering the streets of Portland we decided to drop into this bar for a quick beer. The decor was decidely ready for Halloween with black lights and large spiders adorning the walls. The service was fast and friendly, the bartender was dancing to Etta James. Since it was a Sunday and early, there wasn't much going on and only a couple of other people in the place. Pros: good beer - cold, good value, atmosphere Cons: dark more
