The Oregon Liquor Control Commission has shut down Ohm, one of the last vestiges of Portland's days as a big clubbing city.
The Old Town nightspot established in 1999 was once at the center of the club scene that peaked in 2000 in Portland then slowly died. But Ohm kept going at its home on 1st Avenue near the west end of the Burnside Bridge.
This months the OLCC sent owner David Elliot a letter detailing a year's worth of mayhem at Ohm
, including fights with police, out-of-control bouncers, seriously wasted patrons and near-riots in the street. The club's liquor license was pulled May 14.
We'll always have 2000.
