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

A cash-only bar decked in red mood lighting and filled with antique toys, dolls, lunchboxes, mannequins, and more all over the place. And the dance floor is a bona-fide light-up disco floor, playing great 80s-90s music. Cici the bartender was great. Clientele was a bit colorful overall but there were two bachelorette party groups there too. The downside is that... More

Love this place on Fridays for their 80's Dance Party, usually packed with people, the dance floor is spacious, bar area is good and they even have a pool table if you feel up to pocketing some balls. The DJ jams awesome 80's tunes, rock, disco and pop. I think if you love the 80's you will enjoy a Friday... More

What a horrendous establishment!!! Please do not waste your well earned money on skank beer, dirty restrooms, and awful customer service (probably the worst that I have ever experienced). I have never felt so unwelcome at a place that we paid to enter. Clearly they only like to cater to a certain crowd (known as the drunks). Hopefully you're not... More
