1400 SE Morrison St., 503- 235-8150, crushbar.com.

Portland is still coming out of an unfortunate phase of iconic gay bars going extinct. Luckily for bargoers of every sexual orientation, Crush is still trucking. This moody, kitschy space operates somewhere between a diner, bar and nightclub, with regular special events. It's no surprise WW readers vote Crush Portland's Best LGBT Bar year after year.
