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!!

Had an incredibly memorable night at CC's, just felt fun, lively, intimate and surreal the way gay bars used to feel when I was younger. Great time!

we arrived during Pride, so the long wait was expected on a Saturday night. No cover was nice, with a variety of cockails available. Average to decent bathrooms. Gogo dancers on the bar. A typical gay club open till 2 am

The drag hostess is the best. Bolivia Carmicheal. Drinks are good. The bar workers could work on their customer service skills. Never a good idea to be too busy to say Hello.

CC Slaughters is the busiest club downtown. Thursday nights, walk around Old Town and China Town, quiet isn't it? Wondering where everyone is? Stroll on over to NW Davis and 3rd and you'll find the party. Why Slaughters? Several reasons; a professional, accommodating staff lead by an amazing manager who knows how to build a solid team; great drink specials; themes every night of the week; hosting of events year-round; spacious dance floor and a variety of music.

If you plan on going on a Friday or Saturday night better get there before 10pm - this is the start of their Depression special, $1 well drinks, straight pour. After 11pm the line forms and I've seen it stretch to the end of the block.

Not looking for dancing and music? Visit the other side of CC Slaughters, the Rainbow room with it's contemporary decor and comfortable seating arrangements which allow you to have a conversation with the hottie you spotted on the dance floor. Food is always available and their menu offers better than average bar fare.
Come out on a Tuesday night and try the antipasta plate or cheese plate and settle in to watch Glee.
