Doug Fir Lounge is bidding farewell to its home of nearly two decades and moving into a new space 880 yards away.
The restaurant and music venue will vacate its spot at the Jupiter Hotel on East Burnside Street and take up residence in the former Le Bistro Montage space at 301 SE Morrison St. The new space will accommodate 300+ guests and offer expanded dressing rooms, an intimate private bar, and a patio.
Doug Fir has been a Portland standby since opening in 2004, attracting famous and lesser-known artists alike to its intimate performance space. It’s unclear whether the Jupiter Hotel, which completed a $1 million renovation project following the COVID-19 pandemic, is still searching for a replacement tenant.
A final show will be held Saturday, Sept. 30, at the Burnside location. Doug Fir plans to reopen in its new location in early 2024.
