It seems the reviews for CCs really depend on one's orientation and experience. This is being written by a straight guy that is cool and comfortable with the gay scene (lived in SFO). I had never been to a gay club, and am normally one of those that loathes crowds, so for me to go here on a Saturday night willingly and sans protest speaks volumes.
We ended a day of marathon shopping with this awesome nightcap. Went with female mates of ours that are regulars who happen to be straight that like to go here to dance and not get messed with. The terms "comfortable", "relaxed", and "place to be yourself" were used often to describe this place.
We popped back and forth between the Rainbow Room (lounge) and the Club. Great crowd with a total mix of cool and causal folks. Awesome security were present without feeling oppressive. As a former bouncer myself, all was top notch here. Great music, cheap drink specials, no cover, no pretentious dress code, etc. all make CC Slaughters a great place to unwind, dance, people watch, and most of all have a great time.
"Bolivia" the emcee was funny and awesome. My kilt was a magnet for "her" and she was a lot of fun to get to know. Amazing dancers!! I bow to the faaaaaabulous bois and girls on the dance floor. So much fun watching them let loose.
Halloween & Mardis Gras are wild and so much fun here!! Great well drink specials and food. Steak fingers are filling and along with the rest of the menu, offered at great prices. A little something for everyone.
This is a mandatory spot for fun each and every time we go to PDX. Be sure to check out the free Diva's drag show every Sunday night!!
