Portland’s newest venue, The Woods, is located in historic Sellwood in a former funeral parlor. The classic Mission-style building, built circa 1929, served the community for years as a place to honor and venerate those who have passed on. Renovations have breathed new life into the space, transforming it into a mid-size, comfortable and reverent venue to see modern music, where quiet is the new loud. The hardwood floors, chandeliers and spacious elegance evoke the lobby of a Western hotel, reborn as a music hall and art nouveau lounge. It’s a place to sit and have a glass of wine in a serene environment, entertained by renowned local and national musicians and performers.

The 3000 square foot venue houses a beautiful chapel area for performances, as well as several smaller lounges and outdoor seating, including a covered smoking salon.

The atmosphere is part club-house, part secret society. Patrons will feel they have stumbled upon another world: candle-lit, eccentric yet stately. Karaoke, avant stand-up comedy and movie screenings are scheduled regularly on non-musical performance nights.

The Woods faces Milwaukie Avenue in downtown Sellwood, which is served by bus line 70, and is easily accessible from anywhere in Portland.

Booking: Caroline Buchalter, (Formerly of Mississippi Studios/ Monqui Presents/ Wonder Ballroom) with extensive experience in the Portland scene.
