Portland’s Sinful Past Walking Tours: Shanghaiers, Saloons & Skullduggery

Posted on

East Portland Waterfront 1898
[East Portland Waterfront 1898]

As a nexus for labor and shipping in the Pacific Northwest, Portland often had the repute of a rugged, rough and tumble town, more than willing to allow the miners, loggers, and fishermen an opportunity to part with their hard earned cash in whatever debaucherous manner they chose.

In addition to the shanghaiers and con men, always on the prowl, saloons, gambling halls and bordellos also thrived in “Whitechapel,” “The North End,” or Old Town, as we know it today. Some of these storied establishments have come and gone, but others have survived, and many say that Portland, or “Strip City,” still has that vulgar and rugged reputation to this day.

Join Historian Doug Kenck-Crispin as we visit locations of famous saloons, bars and bordellos, card rooms and gambling dens, some of which are still in operation today! The tour will meet at Thirsty Lion Pub. Feel free to stop by early for a pint and grub! The tour will “end” outside of Mary’s Club, one of Portland’s most hallowed strip clubs*. At the conclusion of the tour, you can join Doug inside for an adult beverage!

Southeast Portland Sunday Parkways

It’s just over one month that Portland Sunday Parkways begins. If you are unfamiliar, each month from May through September, several streets are shut off from motorized vehicles in different parts of the city. Then people walk the streets, bike, unicycle, and several vendors come out, as well as live music, and other entertainment. It’s a great time!

In 2014, 108,900 Portland area residents and visitors participated in Sunday Parkways! This year, Sunday Parkways is happy to present five more fun community connecting events.
