I will start by saying that I've lived in PDX for the past 11 years, and in that time I've seen many fine shows and had good times at Berbati's Pan. BUT...

Tonight I was annoyed enough to write this review. A friend and I went to see Faith & the Muse in concert. It was advertised that you could get tickets at the venue, but pre-sale in Berbati's restaurant ended at 6pm, while the club's doors were closed until 8pm. So we hung out for about 30m. My friend came back to the restaurant complaining that the lady at the club entrance was a bit snooty and would not sell her a ticket. So we waited until about 8:15, when we were finally able to get in.

Inside, the club was set up in some weird way where both sets of bathrooms were blocked off. I had to show my wrist stamp to the bouncer every time I came back out from a bathroom break. A little awkward!

What really annoyed me was the somewhat aggressive empty container collector. He made sure to pick up not only the empties, but also my Black Russian which was about 3/4 full. I paid over $6 for that drink and I didn't even get to finish half of it!

I've been grateful to Berbati's for their dedication towards showing independent music in Portland all this time. But sometimes I wish they could get their own act together a little more (and please, lower the price on mixed drinks, just a little...)

Pros: great music venue

Cons: occasionally not very organized

My husband and I have had hit or miss at this club. We have seen some incredibly great shows and enjoyed ourselves and have walked out of the events. So I guess this is a mixed review. The food is usually very good.

Love to go to the bar on the east side of the block, and have been to musical shows on the west side... both are good places to go and party down. The food's good at the restaurant and it's a great place to kick off an evening of running around downtown.

Pros: Great service, decent prices

Cons: It's downtown........

I like this place for shows, mostly because they are smaller and more interesting bands. Popular shows sell out fast. There are several places to catch a drink before the show and Voodoo doughnuts are right next door

This place always has good music and is up front and personal. The crowd is fun, the drinks are amazing. Being downtown parking can be dicey but there is always a lot close by that will take car of you.

This again, is a good happy hour place. goes from 4 to7 i believe. The pool tables are free and the drinks are strong! Well worth your money. The Copper floors are a nice added touch to the decore of the place.

Pros: happy hour

Cons: slow service

On the weekends they sometimes play some old school late 90's rap and r&b but it is a great dance and meeting place. Great atmosphere.

Pros: Great music most of the time

Cons: Gets crowded

I used to go here for Happy Hour with several co-workers. Their Happy Hour deals are great, and we'd often stay even later (aka--spending more money). That all stopped one night when we ordered some drinks 20 minutes before the end of happy hour and were charged full price. When we confronted the waitress, she told us "happy hour goes by THEIR clock", then proceeded to ask if I wanted another "drinky-poo" and make fun of my order to the bartender. As I shared the story with my co-workers, she came and put her arm around me and asked if I had a problem. We then put down our money (minus tip) and left. We never went back.

Not a super chic bar but a fun one for sure. all kinds of people, beautiful, trendy, alternative, older, whatever. its for everyone. good loud music sets the atmosphere and the drinks I've had have always been good... and strong. but they are spendy. an AMF is 8 bucks. love the outdoor seating and people watching.

Pros: outdoor seating, unpretentious, hotties

Have your beers ahead of time, fifteen clams a pitcher can be a real drag, unless your wallet is getting way to heavy to carry around. Great place to see a show otherwise.

Wife and I went here, and had a great time. Friendly atmosphere, good vibes and all around good feel. Were the 40+ crowd and we melted in with the 20's people greatly

This is an awesome location w/ great potential. The artwork on display in the restaurant is always uniquely attractive bringing a modern creative element to the classic layout. Bar waits tend to run long, with the service ranging from great to down right rude! The happy hour food and free pool are worth dropping in for. I look forward to seeing this place reaching a balanced state.

Berbati's has to be one of my favorite venues in town, the stage set up is cool, the sound is great, and the bar is excellent, with great bartenders and wait staff. The atmosphere is usually mellow, but can vary depending on the music on tap for the night. The food is also quite good, especially after a long night out. The variety of tables allow for people to sit and enjoy the music, and if you get bored of the music, there are games in back to keep you occupied until your favorite band takes the stage. The crowd can be a bit chatty at times during shows, but the space is large enough that you can usually find a place to go to get closer to the stage, or get a better view.

I've only been to the resturaunt side of this establishment, but that was enough for me to see that this place has it together.

If you looking for some good food late at night, this place is for you. Good food, resonable prices, laid back atmosphere, and non of the large crowds.

I recently went to Berbati's after quite some time. I was amazed at how much it has changed, and how much bigger it seemed! The pool area is much more approptiate for the setting. If you decide to sit outside there is never a dull moment. When I was there, some drunk rear ended a parked Taxi cab. Crazy summer nights!

Good place to see a show; even better place to order the bar fries. The best I've ever had.
