BarFly's Review of Shimmers
Located just a heartbeat away from the core of SE 82nd, Shimmers is a perfect example of the working-class neighborhood strip clubs that help keep Portland on the titty-bar map.
A culturally diverse lineup of dancers adds to the flavor of this tucked-away treasure, and drink prices are low enough to keep private dances in the average visitorís budget.
Two stages, and three VIP rooms.
Open 10am-2:30am, every day.
$3 well and $2 select bottles and drafts, 6-8:30pm, every day.

With the exception of two dancers the ladies working were not very sociable. Spent most of their time chatting with each other. The drinks prices were nice however and the one dancer that sat by me was charming.
Okay - not the greatest looking place nor in the nicest part of town, but if you want personal attention from a variety of (mostly hot) girls, sit at the rack. There's plenty of up-close, very erotic dancing. And the music is pretty good, too... I have made myself a regular at this place!
Liked the variety of girls but would be nice if they danced and not just stand around. I must say though it is a clean well organized club and the drinks were good too. Maybe it was just an off evening.
so ive ben to shimers a couple of times and its way beter than it used to be. what was great about yesterday was that there was a girl dancing there who was a bigger girl not the sterotypical size zero blonde. if ur like me and with there was a whole strip club dedicated to the big girls than virgo is the next best thing
Went in the other night feeling that it might be a kind of sketchy spot and was suprised by two really hot blonde dancers. They were very friendly and funny, and seemed to actually be enjoying themselves. I would def recommend this place. In kind of a sketchy part of PDX but the club itself is not bad. Video poker in there too.
Hello Barfly Reviewers,
This has got to be the worst strip bar in Portland, I rather be at juice bar than this hell hole. The first thing you'll notice is the poorly maintained parking lot. The lot isn't leveled, T-rex sized speed bumps, and no visible parking lines causing people to park like idiots. Building exterior is like dilapidated from chipping paint, dusty broken signs, and bullet holes by the entrance door. I step into the building and greeted by this annoying doorman, he reminded of characters from the show "Jersey Shore". Walking up to the bar, I notice the shabby carpet floor that looked like it was from the 70-80's theme, and really needed to be washed. The cliente of this establishment seems more catered to the "ghetto crowd" (The tilted hat, sagging pants, and etc type). I waited at the bar for at least 10 minutes before I was helped. I ordered my drink, the price was okay, BUT there was one problem with it. The drink was poorly made, it lacked alcohol content...I'd probably get drunk quicker drinking an O'Douls. I'll cut the bartender some slack though, because I heard she was new. Grabbing a table to sit down, and watch the dancers. I notice the girls weren't "the" best looking dancers, but they seem to have good attitude when I talked to them. When my drink ran low, it took the cocktail girl a little while to notice that I needed another drink...then again, took her a while to notice me at all. She took my order, but took like another 10 minutes retrieving it. I don't know whos fault it is (Bartender or Cocktail girl) BUT it took forever! Anyways, that is my two cents about this place.
Old asian lady at the bar constantly over charging for drinks. You will never pay the same price twice! better off going across the lot to the spot 79.
