Every Thursday, and sometimes Saturday, our intimate lounge is host to some of the greatest Jazz musicians in the Northwest and beyond. Currently, every second Saturday of the month we host the magnificent Mel Brown Septet. Mel is Portland's preeminent jazz drummer, having cut his teeth at Motown recording sessions with the likes of Marvin Gaye, The Temptations and Stevie Wonder, among many others. And the rest of the band ain't no slouches either. We are supremely grateful to have our lounge graced by their presence, along with countless other jazz legends both local and imported.
One of the great things about our lounge is its versatility. From the most delicate jazz to the most raucous of rock n roll, we do it all, and we do it well. We occasionally have themed parties and DJ sets too. Our lounge can also be rented out for private parties.
Our highly skilled bartenders have access to a wide array of local and exotic spirits, and are able to craft the best old favorite you've ever had, or the best new favorite you've never had.
"Live From Christo's Lounge" is an ongoing series of videos documenting and showcasing the incredible variety of shows we are host to. All in stunning stereophonic sound and vivid high fidelity video.
Our venue seats 45, and also happens to be located on the 45th parallel. Coincidence? Maybe. Tickets may be purchased by phone, or in person at the restaurant. Seating is first come first serve. So come early!
