Funhouse Lounge


This is theater without the safety net.

The Funhouse Lounge is an arts-centric lounge in the Central Eastside of Portland located at the corner of SE 11th and Division. A modern cabaret of sorts, a place to enjoy a drink and some good eats while being entertained. Voted one of “Portland’s Weirdest Bars” by The Oregonian. We have a truly unique blend of entertainment including dance nights, stand up comedy, burlesque, improv, karaoke, storytelling, bingo, plays, and so much more. With one foot planted firmly in the tradition of theatre and the other leaping forward into the future, we are pushing the limits of what theatre “is” or “should be.” Each and every show is unique and above all else FUN! Join us for some laughs.
