BarFly's Review of Dirty
Loud and proud nightclub keeps the party-rock/hop (and house) pounding into the wee hours, much to the delight of the largely bridge and tunnel crowd. As a bonus, you can finally realize your dream of pole dancing in public - if you can elbow your way past the competition to one of the clubs many brass shafts.
Two dancefloors - one with Top 40/mainstream dancing, another featuring trance/house music. Each room has its own 'VIP' areas, if you demand a pole of your own. The main bar has recently been equipped with swings for girls for whom the pole has become passe.
Speedy, pleasant service. Lounge-y seating throughout, with several "VIP" areas available for private parties. Call ahead to reserve - birthday parties get free cake and champagne, too!
For VIP and group reservations, call Maggie at 971.235.2772.
Open 9pm-2:30am Wednesday-Saturday. No cover Wednesday-Thursday, $10 Friday & Saturday (ladies always free; for guest list ack-shawn, text 503.539.5676).
$3 select beer, well drinks, and "bomb shots" 9-11pm Wednesday-Saturday.

It was okay, enjoyed Dixie better because of the racial profiling by the bouncers at dirty, ruined my night and my friends as well.

This place was terrible. The bartenders were rude and unprofessional. They had signs advertising drink specials until midnight and when we tried to order this they refused because it was 11 pm, apparently they do not know how to tell time. The crowed there seemed ruff and ghetto. I wouldnt go back even with a free cover charge.
club dirty is the best place ever..i love it there everybody that works there r amazing..the stripper poles r a hit thats for sure..love the music and both dance floors...i can't wait to go again..your the best dirty!!!!
Eric, the bouncer that wears army gear like he's some sort of war hero, is rude and his actions are creepy and vile. My bf is hot and Eric is gay and he thinks its ok and cop a feel of hot guys. I don't care if you're a homo or a girl, keep your hands off my man. So if you're lookin fly and that guy walks by and you feel someone grab your ass, smack him for me.
All I have to say is I will never go there again!!! One of the bouncers grabbed my arm took through the bar did not tell me where he was taking me! When my sister asked he just told her I needed to sober up. He put me in a room shut the door.The man in the room gave me water that was nice.the thing is I only had two drinks! It was my birthday and turned out to be a not so good one. I don't care who you are you can not grab someone. My friends were worried about me and I had no clue what was going on! It could have been handled way different! The bouncers there are something else!! I hope no one gets hurt!
Me and my girlfriends went to dirty tonight and they pulled my girlfriend into the kitchen where there were a bunch of vomiting girls some with men which may or may not have been their boyfriends. The fat long haired bouncer told us we were invited to the downstairs party and we should wait in line. We were literally afraid wewere going to get put in a room and raped. If we were too drunk they should have asked us to leave so that wasn't it. We will be filing a report at the police station. It was the shadiest thing I have ever experienced at a bar!
I had a great time, until we were leaving. When the rude oversized bouncer TOOK my water away... Seriously? IT'S WATER!!!!!!! Something so simple as water ruined my first and probably only time going to Portland dance clubs. I've never been treated so rudely in my whole life. Clubs nice, ppl working there aren't!
If your going out to have a good time, stay far away from this place, as if the other 99% of bad reviews didn't do it for you, here's another. Bouncers are rude and if you don't look like you just fell off the cover of GQ or playboy they will actually send you around the corner to a different door which enters to the same club but charges twice the amount for a cover. Judgmental a-holes. Once inside you can't possibly move, the shoulder to shoulder crowd impedes any chance of dancing or even getting to the bathroom. And if you want a drink.... Good luck! If you have the patience to wait for one be prepared to pay up for 90% mixer. me and my friends have given this place a few chances and we are all completely done! Worst bar and staff in Portland I've ever encountered.
It was okay, not really my scene but perfect for a bachelorette party. I was very impressed with the view! Hot Asian guy behind the bar....marry me?
So yea went to this place last night and i had not drank a single drop of alchohol and was not even let in this dumb fuck bouncer named Roger says i am physically Drunk?? I told em id take a breathalizer from the cops sitting in their cop cars two feet away and prove it but the dumb idiots still refused. I want to talk to the owner of this establishment and they still wouldnt even let me speak with them its BS that a DD who doesnt even drink cant get into a bar with his girlfriend when he hasnt drank a single drop and has no intentions.. We went to another bar and they let me straight in so whats the deal DIRTY?? you stupid fucks fire your bouncers and hire some that know what they are doing!!
Not only did they charge me $9 for an AMF that was half 7-Up but they told my buddy that is idea wasn't his (it was, he has lost weight) but they told him the only way not to get the cops involved was to pay the bouncer $60 to get the id back. We are calling the police in the morning and i will tell every other service man and women i know that dirty is by far the worst place in portland, it was a horrible place to spend my leave.
Dirty, the bar is fine and a good place to go for seeing the ladies, drinks are okay, and most of the bouncers are cool dudes, but I and most anybody who does or has served in the military can't stomach the place because of the bouncer who dresses like a high speed low drag marine with all kinds of molle gear on his tac vest that just makes him look like an ass clown, and pisses us off. You see...our uniforms are a precious thing. They are earned not only by our willingness to serve, our efforts, blood, sweat, tears and dirt ground into them from the lands all over the world that we travel to serve our nation in peace and war, but to us, they represent the blood and sacrifice our brothers and sisters have given to allow us to wear the exact same uniform that they wore before us. When you have served in war, when your comrade wearing the same uniform you are is hit and he bleeds out all over your uniform and dies under your hands...you begin to realize what your uniform really means. It is an unimaginable symbol of pride, honor, courage and sacrifice, it is as much a symbol of the price of freedom as the flag is, and it is very much something thats right to wear is earned. To see a bouncer wearing a Marpat uniform looking like an ass clown, not only devalues the meaning of that uniform, but dishonors us who have served, and is a shameful disgrace to be worn in that manner and for such a use as a security bouncer. I don't know if he has ever served or not, if he has...he should know better and deserves to have his ass kicked... If he hasn't, that's even more of an insult to those who have and I can't believe that Dirty as an establishment or it's management would tolerate such a thing. It's interesting that this guy is the only guy there who dresses like that...the whole purpose of a uniform is for function and uniformity. Why doesn't anybody else play dress up with him? I also wonder if he realizes how close he is to committing a federal crime of impersonating a military official. All he would need is a name/service tape and some rank devices and he could be charged much the same way someone could be arrested if they choose to dress up as a police officer. Anyways, like I was saying, most anybody military can't stomach that shit and would rather not visit a place that so blatantly dishonors us.
The bouncers suck. They don't know the concept of respect. I was charged $20 once, and as I was going out, the sign beside the door said $10. I asked one of the workers just to make sure how much the cover charge for the night was, and he said $10, so I told him I was charged $20. He said "I don't know," and left straight away. I went to one of the bouncers and asked him why I was charged $20. He didn't answer. They tend to hit patrons too. Those so called "bouncers" are the scum of the earth. I don't know where this club found people like that in Portland. But seriously, they're the rudest assholes in the world.
Girls are slutty, stock up, and annoying. Guys are the same type of douchebags you see in the New Jersey Shore. The place smells of armpits and guys just look at you straight in the eye to start a fight with you.
I always tell people to never go there. When someone I know goes there, I just hope they don't get in trouble.
Last Night we braved the Star Light Parade mess and decided to stick around downtown to party of all the places we hit, the 2 craziest where Dixie which was Packed so we got in Early then later over to Dirty, this corner actually seems like a Portland has a REAL entertainment district at last!!!! I am older and remember driving to Seattle to hit Pioneer Square because Portland was boring, now Portland is better than Seattle, I was in Seattle last weekend in both Bell Town and Pioneer Square and they have nothing on Portland. so hats off to all the new spots in Downtown.
List of the places we hit
Bar 15 Great but we where early Beauty Bar Fun little spot not into mani's or Pedi's Thirsty Lion Great live music Dixie Crazy Dirty Crazy
Sorry for the long review.
The names sums it up... some of the sluttiest girls on earth, a bunch of tools for guys. Place is terrible and the bouncers are corrupt of course, charging free-$20 for cover based on who you are and what you look like. The music is bland generic club rap BUT the one good thing is the electro room they have where it's strictly electronic. Anyway if you fit into the above crowd, then this place is for you... otherwise... ya
i went there for the first time last night, and it was the best place i have been in portland so far...alot of good looking girls, and the service was pretty fast...the dudes there are a bunch of tools, but other than that, great!
I'd been hearing all the hype for a while and went here expecting smokin' hot bartenders and waitresses in hot little outfits. Well I guess I took the hype too seriously. Their just regular looking girls you see anywhere. Not bad or anything, but not model material either. And some didn't look good in their outfits. Not naming names because thats fucked up. Its still a fun place just don't go in expecting Maxim models behind the bar. You just gotta keep in mind, it's still Portland. I don't know if they'll run this cuz I see Dirty advertises here now, but thats just my take.
If you're looking for some where to dance on Thursday, Dirty is pretty much the only place unless you want to go grab your cowboy hat and jump across the street. The first time I went I turned around and a man who looked like a live replica of those green army guys was standing there, I could only say "What the fuck?" ... and then my eyes drifted around to the blue camo black bullet proof vested guys who at the shortest, six foot three. Aside from the random get ups - it's decent. I am definitely more an Aura/Agency girl on Fridays and Saturdays. People actually dress nice and are of a higher class. Dirty goers usually are, the people who don't feel comfortable at Aura and Agency. Dirty's music is so - so. They love, and I mean looove their 80's mixes with random top 40's from the past two decades. They have another room with Techno music and a lit floor. It's an over all fun time if you're not dressed up and are with good ppl. But I definitely do recommend Aura and Agency over this place. It all depends on you as the person - on where ya want to go - obviously.
Careful about hanging out or working here, it seems to be a very good way to get blasted on that gossip site. At least half of their material comes out of here. They aren't the only dance club so why is that, is management encouraging them? Bad publicity is good publicity? Well you won't see me in there or on that site. Fuck that.
It was alright, the music was really good, but the floor was full of stella's and guido's. Lots of bro's and bro hoes if you know what I mean. The place reeked of self tanner and peroxide but hey like i said the music was fun to dance to. Don't know how the drinks were because my friend and I decided on getting shit wasterd before going on. That was good, but yea unless you want lots of steroid dick on your ass probably steer clear?
I have never actually written a review of anything before but I figured I'd start here. I had an ok time at Dirty tonight. If you're like me and able to type after a night out at the bars then something went wrong. Well it did. I had my ID and two credit cards stolen out of my pocket tonight at Dirty! The place seemed nice enough. My only suggestion is to make sure your valuables are in a VERY safe place if ya wanna have a good time here.
lol lol lol go out of business?? are you drooling on yourself and shitting your pants because your comment is that of a RETARD!!! Have you seen the smokin hot girls that work there? That my friend is reason enough for Dirty to NEVER go out of business!!! Stupid people (like you) make me smile :)
I am a member of Dirtys management team and would like to start off by letting our VIP card holders know how sorry we are if you are ever made to wait! Forgive us and let us know so we can buy you a round on us!!!! Our policy on the VIP cards is not a free for all and is exclusive to women "Sorry Chris but your female friends VIP card doesnt cover you!" As for Jason and Josh they are doing their best and when you have to deal with hundreds of drunken patrons trying to get in it is a pain in the BUTT! Pun intended! People who have tables are taken care of by the many VIP hosts and the only time we will not honor VIP table guests is when the Fire Marshal is kickin me in my ass! threatening to shut the doors! so please if you buy a table or not PLEASE show up early! Dirty is also the ONLY party bar/Club that deos not charge women cover ever!!!! and no we do not make women wait in line they can come into the bar at anytime, they are most likely with a tool such as Fatboypdx and Chris who dont even want to pay cover and show up at 12am on Saturday!
Lets do the math 2 guys 2 girls
Dirty $10 men only Fri & Sat=$20 2 Bars(Dirty/Spin)2 DJ's 1 cover, plus no cover for women
Dixie $7 each= $24
Aura $10 each
Dirty has never wanted to be like Vegas, LA or even San Mo! So "Chris" I will be the first to buy you and your friends a round or even comp you a table and Bottle and let you know that we will continue to work hard to make sure everyone has the VIP treatment that they deserve!
Things that are great about Dirty
1-FREE Birthday package Bottle/Floor table/Ballons/Custom VIP sign 2-No cover for Women 3-2 seperate rooms Dirty=Party Bar Spin=Club 4-2 DJ's with 2 styles of music 5-Free H20 all night 6-No FIGHTS! because of the huge savage bouncers :) 7-Lots of clean Bathrooms 5 womens and 5 mens 8-Lots of bar=easy to get a drink! 9-Portlands only indoor heated entry area! this winter dont wait outside to get carded in the freezing rain! 10-Lots Stripper poles!

Yes we do have a dress code!
We have good days and bad days and it is a challenge to make everyone happy everyday but we try we really do! and if you dont like it please ask for a manager we will do everything to make it right! Running a bar is "Controlled chaos!" its like hearding drunken ducks at a football game!
Thank you everyone for you comments and complaints as this will only make us work harder!
This is best club in town fo sho! Dont listen to people that dont know how to party ! Hot chicks work there hot chicks go there lots of my friends go there all the time and so do i . Dj is awesome, atmosphere is the best people are dressed nice but not to stuck up. Easy to meet chicks, 3 different dance floors , 3 bars cool staff and chicks are wearing hot outfits. If you in portland and like clubbing this is the place to go!
Dirty used to be cool. The girls, guys, bouncers, manager, etc. were all great. Now it just sucks. The lines are long. Some people pay but some people don't. Girls with VIP stamps on their ID still have to wait and don't get let in. You buy a VIP table and have to wait in line. 45 minutes later, after twenty people leave the club, you are still waiting. Even though you have a table, the 10 fat chicks behind you get in because they know the humongous Mexican bouncer . I swear, the girls used to be off the hook! Now the hot ones have to wait while the fat ones get in! Are they scared of discrimination suits? No...it is just the pair of the manager Josh and the bouncer Jason; they have to be gay for each other. I have never seen a club suffering like this club. LA and Vegas? Gag me. Have you ever been to these places? It is called organization and professionalism, not homo-unorganized chaos. Do the club a favor and find new bouncers and management.
Dirty does give you the LA or Vegas feel her in Portland. Drop the complaints about spending money boys. You know, if you make more, you can spend more and actually have some fun in life. Facts of life are brutal, I know. If you are not a complete loser, it is a hot club. The VIP, bartenders, bouncers, and hot girls appreciate a guy who knows how to treat them. If you want a $1 drink then go to a college town or an outlying area. I don't think the hot chicks and VIP service will be there though. I'm sure it is the managements way of keeping the losers from coming in. That being said, I have always had a great experience at Dirty! I only recommend it for dudes that like to roll (if you don't know what that means, I can't help you). Don't be a hater and go make some money.
I went to Dirty for the first time and LOVED it. Yes, if you're a guy you have to pay, but so what! Us women get the shaft on so many other things, let us at least get into a club for free every now and then. The music is awesome (no crappy 80s like the Dixie), the bartenders are super sweet and very sexy, and the clientele is much more attractive than other places I've been. Yes, it's a little uppity, and you should dress in something sexy and fashionable, if you're in jeans and a tank top, go to the Dixie. Yes, the bouncers can be a little on a powertrip, but cut them some slack. They have to deal with douche bags and drunkasses all night. If you're polite, they'll be the same.
The drinks are decent, too. Just remember to tip your bartender, she'll remember if you don't. And they give out free bottles of water, because they care.
So overall, Dirty beats out McFadden's and the Dixie anyday. If you're on 3rd and near Couch, check it out.
The competitor for them is Dixie, and it can be confusing figuring out which one to select. going to both is a nonoption because fuck waiting in 2 long lines and paying 2 covers. So it depends on what you're after, hotter chicks or a wilder time.Dirtys got stripper poles and the female customers dress skimpier there. The chicks behind the bar at Dirty are waay hotter. (Dixie, you need to stop saying you have the hottest bartenders in town, you don't anymore.) The Dirty girls dress sluttier (yay!) and none of them have weight problems like some of the Dixie girls. (the recent Dixie reviews are true.) However the Dixie gets off the hook on weekends and you don't feel like you have to dress like it's new years eve there. Just remember to stand out of the way when one of the chubbier Dixie girls lumber onto the bar to dance, you wouldn't want one to slip and fall on you. But they're all still doable after enough drinks. So which one shall I go to tonight? Hmmmm....
I booked a bachelorette party at Dirty last weekend thought a myspace message sent to me they offered us a bottle of Champagne and table for free! When we got to the club it was packed and we got in no problem and the table we where supposed to get was taken because we where late! the female VIP hostess found us another table it was small but ok! We ended up dancing all night long going between both clubs and the music was funner on the front side and they have the stripper poles to dance on. The best thing about the bar was the bathrooms for the girls! and the music!
My over all experiance was good and we will definately go again!
I have been to Dirty a couple times, and I it has been pretty fun. It is definately a younger 21-25 crowd, and a little bit risque... but really, would you expect sophistication from a place called Dirty? I have been once when the dance floor was open, and once when it was under construction. I like the atmosphere of the bar area, so once it is all done, I think the bar and the dance sections will really work well together.
The only cons I would give Dirty is that the girl bartenders seem to be lacking in drink making skills. I've had to had my drink re-made a few times.
All in all, Dirty is young, fun, and a little bit naughty...
dirty is a semi-decent place. but they hire the bottom of the barrel DJs with absolutely no skill. this place won't last.
I really have no idea where to start here….night started off with this big fat no talent ass clown of a security guard looking like he just got of a plane from Iraq. With that said he then decided that he was so freaking cool in his lame ass uniform to tell me that I was not allowed in the bar with shoes that have no laces…yet he just let Mr. Abercrombie in with flip flops…after being a dosh pop I get in and pay my $10 cover cause I have a wanker between my legs...but if I had boobs it was free. So now I am in and this place is so want to be LA and Vegas it is truly sad and pathetic. All the people are nothing but 21 to 25 year olds that are like, “Look at me I am an Abercrombie model”. The drinks are expensive and are 90% water…the music blows…oh and if you want to dance with a girl back in the “dance area” you have to pay another $10 guys because you have a wanker and not boobs so in all you pay….
$10 to get in $60 for crapy water downed drinks $0 for crapy atmosphere $10 to go dance if you’re a guy
So absolutely not worth it ever, worst bar I have ever been to and I have been all over the world…that should say a lot.
My friend and I stopped in about a month ago at about 3 p.m. to check it out and were greeted by a girl in dominatrix boots and fishnets and a schoolgirl skirt so short you could see what religion she was. I'm all for getting your skank on, but in the middle of the afternoon? Kinda jarring. My friend and I are not at all uptight, she's a former stripper even, but stopping in for a beer and a bite to eat and being waited on by that is weird. Does the interior of this place remind anyone else of Applebees? At least it isn't the Dixie.
Finally someone actually spent some time and money in a club in Portland, It is not the same old tired regurgetated crap! Me and my girlfriends went on a Friday and it was F'in rockin. and Yes! after a few drinks we where all dancing on the poles!
