I've been to Bubbas on numerous occasions. So far, always a unique good time that brings us back. The minute you walk in the door you'll notice the unbelievably interesting retro decor, complete with antiques throughout and a dance floor right out of the 1970's soul train show. Cover and drink prices are comparable to everywhere else in Portland. Staff... More

Went to Bubba's to try and enjoy some 80's dancing with a birthday group. The DJ played an ADHD version of 80's music that was horrible. Usually people dance to songs that are longer than 30 seconds, DJADHD Jon tailors his music to a crowd that must be so drunk, that they don't know what they might be listening too.... More

Why? well they proceeded to say we were "too intoxicated". What? everyone is intoxicated here, its a bar...However we had to leave and it smells a... More

We went for 80's night Friday night! We got there early missed cover charge and got a good table near the dance floor. It is CASH ONLY! There is an ATM there but some creep hovers near it so watch yourself and your pin! The bar is ok but they say they serve kettle one vodka but definitely is not... More

I am a HUGE 80s fans and traveled here with my husband to celebrate my 40th birthday this past Friday (80s night!). With the exception of my wedding day, I've never had so much fun in my entire life! This place is AMAZING and VERY UNIQUE...just like that decade! Website says they have 2 dance floors, but in my opinion,... More

My college age sister took me and my boyfriend out with her friends to Bubba's for a good time one night. The atmosphere is like nothing you have ever seen! there are old fashioned lunch boxes and record players everywhere, creepy manikins, a disco floor and so much more! It was the only place in portland that I know of... More

I hesitated at the door not knowing if this was a good idea....but then once we saw the dance floor and heard the music, it was two hours of pure rocking out with people from 80 to 21 on the floor breaking it down. Two tall PBR's and two bottled waters for 10 bucks..I miss this place already...every town should... More

My girlfriends and I have been to Bubba's a handful of times for the Friday '80's Night. We love all things '80's---From the clothes, to the hair, to the ridiculous makeup and flashy earrings. This past time, however, might have been my last visit to Bubba's. As much as I love that this place has a light-up dance floor and... More

This is not an upscale establishment. They have a bunch of artifacts on the wall and ceiling from old lunch boxes to stuffed moose heads to keep your interest. It's a bar that only takes cash. They have two dance floors and two bars. The drinks are reasonably priced. They play different genres of music depending on the night. Set... More
