BarFly's Review of Sassy's
A staple of inner-southeast nightlife, Sassy’s is arguably one of the
best bars in Portland, strip club or otherwise, with its unbeatable happy hour, a menu that rivals some of Portland’s more
upscale bars, a game room with pool, video crack, pinball, etc., an exclusive 'VIP' balcony seating area, and three stages, including an outdoor shower stage in operation seasonally, on the smoking/drinking patio.
From hula-hoopers to pole-wrangling contortionists, Sassy’s features a diverse array of talented dancers. DJs play everything from GG Allin to Die Antewoord and monthly events such as stripper dog washes and themed holiday parties. Plus, it’s girlfriend/wife-friendly.
All beer $2.50, 10:30am-7pm, every day.

Sassy's has the best happy hour around, $2.50 for a great selection of micros. I have always found the service to be great...prompt and friendly. It is not glamorous and the place may look a little worn but the vibe is positive. Then there are the dancers who really seem to enjoy what they do. They are sexy, engaging, talented and pleasant to talk to. No pretensions, just great ladies and a fun time to be had by all. Check it out you won't be disappointed
I really hate to be a downer, but someone just has to say it. Sassy's is a dive bar and pretends to be nothing more, but is there anything wrong with a patron being able to get a drink promptly? Also it is a strip club and I just dont understand the business model of giving the prime hours of after 9pm to the women who have seriously been there 10+ years and are well into their 30's. I mean, come on, it is a strip club. I am sure they are nice people and I know that many of them are having been a patron for years but I do not know any males who go to a strip club to see 30+ year old women. Every time I am there I hear someone say something about this fact and I know many people who will not go into Sassys AFTER 9pm because they want to see women in their 20's and not well into their 30's. Regarding trying to get a drink, my idea of a dive bar is a place where management makes damn sure no one EVER was in want of a drink lol. As much as I love the place for the last 10+ years of going there it has become so f'ing hard to get a drink when they are somewhat busy that it just is becoming not worth the hassle. Ok, there I said it. Crucify me. I just know that I have lots and lots of company in these thoughts. I know people will say to just go somewhere else. Sure, but I want to go to Sassys. And not have to wait 15 minutes to get PBR and be able to watch some women below the age of 30 do their art on stage....
Went here for the first time recently and had a great time. Would definitely go back. The dancers were entertaining and attractive. There were two hot Asian dancers while I was there. Anyone know their names?
We visited Sassy's last week and were happily surprised to find that they have expanded their taps...by our count, it's 23 local micros, and yes, you can get 'em all for $2 during the loooonng happy hour. And by "micros", we're talking super-local stuff like Burnside and Coalition.
Talented dancers, too. If you are into that kinda thing. :-)
With cheap micros at happy hour and chicks with art and civilized vibe, it's awfully damn good.
As has been previously mentioned, it fills up with unpleasant dudes on Friday and Saturday nights. And they usually end up puking in the bathroom. And the smell then wafts toward the stages, ruining your enjoyment of naked girls.
This place, like DP and LD, have wonderful girls dancing most of the time, but I believe you'll have a better time visiting during the 4-9 shift.
Sassy's is such a great bar, with awesome staff! Saturday nights are by far the best though! They have HOT waitresses... OMG so hot. Big boobs, lots o tats hot and amazing hair!
During the week this place is the best. It's real relaxed more like a corner bar then a strip club. But during the weekend it sucks it fills up with a bunch of douchbags. You can barely walk around and it takes forever to get a drink. But all in all the Girls are hot and they have the nicest bouncers in all of Portland.
I have 3 bartending jobs in town and I frequent this site because I am terrified about people talking shit about me and then my boss seeing. It has happened, and I have a job that calls meetings when we get a bad review which is hella stressful! I get nervous looking on here or yelp, in fear I wasn't smiling at the right moment or something went wrong and pissed some picky ass person off. Rocket is one of the only people besides myself who writes positive reviews(not all but most), and she writes them about so many different places that it doesn't matter that she writes about her own job. I make a point to write something nice every time I have a great experience and so does she, but others just seem to focus on the bad. I have never met her but next time I go to Sassy's I will look for her...and Sassy's is the shit, by the way.
Sassy's is rad. Of course, I am a bit biased since I work here ;) However, I was a patron of this club long before I danced here, and is a fun and friendly place. Recent improvements include a covered outdoor smoking area and a VIP room upstairs! The food menu now has breakfast, lunch and dinner options. The staff and dancers are on top of their game. It's a great neighborhood bar with A+ entertainment. xoxo Rocket
Sassy's is the best strip club I have ever been to and one of my neighborhood bars. The girls are SO HOT AND NICE and their staff is so friendly and you get the best service ever. The door guys are friendly ass hell and if you do something wrong they aren't jerks, they just politely tell you what's up. I have been impressed for months and just got around to writing this now which was well deserved months ago! YAY for Sassy's!
This place is pretty good. It has a decent crowd on a Tuesday night. It's a bit small for my taste, but it still has three stages. The girls are decent, haven't seen anything great. The drinks are okay. It seems to have a group of regulars.
This place shouldn't disappoint most people it should be enough. The beer selection is nice.
There is a feeling of a lack of privacy if you decide to go for a personal dance.
I would suggest that it is a place to try in Portland. Although it's sort of like a dive place but not quite.
In my own opinion, best service of all adult entertainment clubs I've visited in PDX. Went on a Thursday early evening night solo, very welcoming atmoshpere, selection of 6 girls rotating on 2 stages, superb service and average-above average dancers. Although never did see or was aware of any private dances, no matter, experience was great from my part.
Primarily a small stage dancing club. Two stages going with Suicide Girl types(tattoos and piercings) mostly although they were very attractive tattooed girls. Saw one lap dance the whole time I was there, because people mostly sat around the two stages and tip a dollar a song mandatory while they rotate the 8 girls two at a time on the stage.
Hit the stage here, too. Needed day shift, got it. Bartenders were friendly, fast, & funny! Utilikilt wearing doorman is/was GREAT (is he still there? I wonder...)With great legs, too! As for girrrls having to play their own music... beats SOME clubs with the jukeboxes... or that rap/hiphop crap. Food's worthy of a bite, or two. When I moved out of USA, I donated my snake, Bubba, to bouncer's collection. This place is like a home away from home for me. Hell, I brought housewifey girlfriends in & they loved it! Gotta agree, not enough tipping going on, we tipped way more than any guy, every time we went in!
Doorman needs to get a life. dude would only let me in if my buddy agreed that i didnt drink anymore. Ok i was a little wasted but if you dont want me to drink then dont let me in. The place is great though. The woman are fantastic and the bar is amazing, just bite you cheek and ignore the doorman.
Stopped in recently after an absence of a few months. They've added some walls here and there, and some new chairs. One thing that hasn't changed are too many people that hang out here tables full and do not tip the dancers.
There are plenty of lounges around East Portland to drink and bullshit in, and the dancers are all working for tips only.
So get your cheap worthless asses up there in between PBRs and drop a goddamn dollar. Even the random golfers staying at the Marriott that wander in here know to fucking tip.
when i went there there were only 2 girls, hot, but they were working their asses off for practically nothing, (slow evening!) and they had to use their own cd's. food was great, service great and workers all friendly, but man i felt sorry for the 2 strippers working for practically nothing and using their own music. maybe its changes since then it was a while back. i will go back and try it again sometime
The women are hot and seldom have an attitude. The two owners were former employees and run the bar like a place they would like to go to. And, yes, they hang out at their own bar. Can't go wrong going here. The food is outstanding and cheap!
This place is not that good. The girls just ok, one of them had a major attitude problem and acted like she didn't give a shit...Go get a new job bitch!! I'll give them this, The food ok, service was excellent, and drinks good.
Small place. goto the Acropolis or downtown to Cabaret Lounge
This is by far one of my favorite bars. Super friendly staff and cold beer. They even let me make out with my friends ex-fiance at the rack!! Late night fights with girlfriends are always fun here. Especially when you get your car stolen after you have your keys thrown at your head. Remember to go back and pick them up when that happens. The vending machine cashews are awesome the grilled cheese sandwiches are worth not puking up (meaning don't try to single-handedly empty the jagerator). My wife bought me a lap dance from Miss Nude Oregon 2004 then we went to her baby shower later that year. I love Portland.
Last time I was there I saw Mara, the hottest stripper I'd ever seen - not skanky, real classy. They used to call her "The Cowgirl". I called a month later & was told she no longer works there. Anyone know where I can find her?? I'm unsatisfied with all other strippers once I saw her.
Frankly, I give it an A
Last time I was at Sassy's I was approached and more or less hit on by two reasonably attractive young women. Me, I'm in my late forties talking to some girl who wants to do lunch while all around us the local talent are flinging their naked selves around steel poles...
I think I like this place.
Dive-y in a good way; stiff drinks. Biggest complaint: not NEARLY enough dancers for a busy Saturday night, though the ones that were working were most fine.
Sometimes this place is a dud, but more often I have a good time here. Saw a dancer couple weeks ago, looked like a cross between Pat Benetar and David Bowie...in a good way. Good pours, good taps, two stages, and the ever-lovable piss trough in the head. Also, I don't know if she still dances, but I saw a contortionist stipper here once, named Pandora. She flip-flopped up the pole backwards. Or something. Freaky.
