Devils Point advertises itself as "Portland's Rock-'n'-Roll Strip Club," as if there's no other place to watch prodigiously tattooed Lisbeth Salander cosplayers twerk to Joy Division in this town. Honestly, it's harder to find a strip club in Portland that doesn't cater to the rocker crowd, but this deep-red cubbyhole at the nexus of Foster-Powell certainly leans into the idea harder than most. Dancers are as likely to take the lone stage in beat-up Vans as platform heels, and often make use of the industrial-strength chains augmenting the pole. The soundtrack ranges from Pantera to the Sugarcubes, and the bar area is decorated like it's permanently Halloween. And perhaps you've heard of Stripperaoke, the Sunday night tradition where patrons live out their '80s metal video fantasies by singing "Girls Girls Girls" flanked by girls, girls, girls? It's become famous enough to attract the famous, including Dave Chappelle, who stopped by to perform Radiohead's "Creep" after a show in 2016. Celebrities sometimes pop in on off-nights, too—last year, Eagles of Death Metal played an impromptu gig on a random Thursday between tour stops. Maybe Devils Point really is Portland's most rock-'n'-roll strip club. Sure, Mary's has the Courtney Love connection, but she only worked there.
