I can understand how hard it is for security at a bar. You are mostly hated/avoided and you always have to be on your guard. I am generally thankful for these people when I go out. Not a Candy though.

Yelling at and belittling women is not part of your job description. Dealing with drunk people is downright hard, but realize that not all people in your establish are drunk and out of control. You can be respectful and still be authoritative. Although every other person, from the bartenders to the id checker, was amazing, friendly and respectful; the security deters me from ever returning to Candy.

My advice? Go to Candy for the great service and music; but avoid pompous security at all costs.

Pros: Music, Cocktails, Age Requirement

Cons: SECURITY, Drink Prices

Everyone was playing with a computer. I wondered what was going on, I definitely did not get the memo. Turns out, people just surf the internet or facebook on the computers that are provided at every booth and and every barstool. Very weird vibe. Just didn't feel right, too anti-social.

Waited 10 minutes for service, but left before ordering a drink. The combination of poor service and weird atmosphere was not what I was looking for on a saturday night.

Pros: Trendy decor

Cons: Everything else

I discovered this place shortly after they opened and have been hooked ever since.
All the staff are very friendly and prompt. The food can't be beat and neither can the prices. 2 people can get an appetizer, meals, and drinks and leave with left overs for $25 Happy Hour or not. Not to mention its a very comfortable and relaxed atmosphere where you can hang out for hours.
keep up the good work Candy you guys are running an awesome bar that my friends and I enjoy very much!

As for the post by Raechell I have personally never seen any discrimination in this establishment. I have friends from every corner of the world who have walked in with me and got the same service I always do. I'm sorry that you had a bad experience but you've posted this on every review site for this place and you're the ONLY one who has ever had a problem.

Candy is simply Portland's best nightclub all around. The racial comment above is BS. I have hung out there all the time with my Lebonese and Mexican friends.

The staff treat you so well, unlike anything I have ever seen in my years of partying in Porland. The manager is always roaming around and would turn the world upside down to make your visit a good one.

Everyone from the top 21 year old fashion model types to the Grizley Adams wannabes get along.

There are celebrities here. The top UFC fighters party here.

If you are looking for a good time, this it it. Just try to get out before 10pm on a Friday or Saturday night to avoid a line. Swing dance lessons on Thursday.

I am NOT an employee or affiliated with Candy in any way. Just a guy that has been to every bar in Portland many times so I know a good one when I see one. My other multiple reviews attest to that fact.

Please do not visit Candy. I was a first hand witness to the management discriminating based on race.

I was with a very diverse ethnic group of people who were all dressed to the nines. The women entered the establishment first, but when they got to the guys they told them there was a $30 cover. The guys, caught off guard, stepped aside to contact those who had already entered. We then watched a small group of caucasian men enter without paying. I asked this group if they were VIP or knew anyone and of course they did not. I was pleading with the management to let the guys in, but the lowest they were willing to go was $20.

Our group was never anything more than polite and it was huge disappointment, being that we've visited Candy before. There was virtually no line at about a quarter to 10 and the inside was not even half full.

We certainly will not be visiting Candy ever again.
