great music, drinks and staff 5/2/2011

I love the candle light, the music is wonderful! small dance floor but i really didn't mind. They make a good drink and the food was great. lots of different kinds of people to interact with cant wait to go again! more

I love the music, and the dancing is an extra! 5/15/2009

If you can, get there early to secure a good table otherwise you're on the side lines. The place is extremely small, but the music, entertainment is always first class. I go every time I visit Portland on the weekend. Pros: The Music is Always Great Cons: Dance floor is too small more

GREAT MUSIC 3/9/2009

The music at the Candlelight is always good, bartenders are great. The dance floor is way to small for the amount of business they do, and whatever you do if you get on the dance floor, STAY AWAY FROM THE BACK CORNER OF THE DANCE FLOOR! For some reason men try to get you to that dark corner and fondle and do things you may not like! I always have fun when I go and feel safe walking in by myself however, LADIES BEWARE...MOST OF THE MEN I'VE MET THERE ARE BIG TIME ""PLAYERS"" But it is very entertaining to watch them ""play"" more

Best bartenders, great drinks, fun atmosphere! 2/5/2009

It is such a great experience! Great live music with no cover!!! There are always friendly people, and fun characters to meet to make your night. But the drinks and bartenders are the best, totally reasonably priced and really good! The last time I went in there was a cute fun little bartender, I think her name was Jody, she was great! I totally recommend you go and experience the candlelight!!!! It does get crowded though, but for me that is part of the experience and just a sign of how great the place is! Pros: staff, drinks, atmosphere, music!! Cons: gets crowded (not always a bad thing) more

Stay away from this place!!! 2/4/2009

I really recommend not to go to this place as I had a teriable experience there with the unfriendly bartender. I think his name is Scot. He was almost going to kick me out just because I told him that a b**ch was so mean to me because she was drunk and I never replied to her and I told the bartender that please let that woman respect the other customers. He said well, I think I will take your drink and you should leave. Pros: Great place for elders Cons: Service, dirty, unfriendly staff. more

Super fun and Ultra diverse 12/7/2006

The Candlelight is a great bar with a very diverse crowd (from the super old guy regulars to the young, hip college kids to the all-time blues folks and more) The staff is fun and friendly. You can dance, mingle, play pool, and catch some of Portland's best music. Definitely one of the best music venues. Sure, the bar can get smoky, but I bet there's a good time had by all. The Candlelight offers a great bar menu, too. Pros: Diverse, Service, Music Cons: Smoky, Crowded (is that really a con?) more

Claustrophobic, smoky! 10/17/2006

The bands are sometimes great, but the dance floor is too small, the air is unbreathable, and you can't see where you're going. It's a ""hangout"" so you'll meet interesting people, maybe. I don't know about the drinks because I've never had one. If the owner would go smokeless I'd be there more often and so would my homegirls. I ran into a client from 20+ years ago beside the pool table, zounds....good pool players! Mostly older crowd so decent place if you don't like the 20-somethings. more

Great place 10/11/2004

The bartenders are a group of the best in town. Looking out for customers and protective too. They get my highest ratings. more

a great band to see..... 6/9/2003

If you are free on a Thursday night, check out OVERNIGHT SUCCESS with the Kelly twins. Great music, Fabulous vocals, and these guys are very entertaining. Also you shold check out there CD. Also, although the candlelight is a little more pricy, the drinks are definately worth what you pay for them, and the food is good too. Pros: great bands, great food, great drinks Cons: crowded, not enough waitresses more

rude staff 1/19/2003

found the bouncers to be rude,and some of the staff are on the wrong side of the bar a lot of people but, and if you like water down drinks then this is the to be I'm not saying they water the drinks god forbid but if you get the same amount in another bar you would feel a buzz from it, not so here so stick to the beer at least it cannot be altered. more

Editorial

  • In Short
    Largely populated by an over-40 crowd that's full of serious blues aficionados, this rather small but famous lounge is big on the singles scene. At least half of the clientele...
