Parking & Transportation: Note: Park at your own risk. Obey any local parking signage. Check with the venue for the most up to date information.

The venue is in downtown Portland next to Voodoo Doughnut. There is extremely limited parallel parking in the area. It's near a MAX stop and bus stops.

Jump the Line: Unsure if disabled patrons are allowed in first
Stairs – Other/Details:

To get in line at the venue: if you need a curb cut, the closest one is next to Voodoo's entrance. Then once you get over by the venue, there's a wooden ramp with a big lip to get up to pay/give them your ticket and enter the upper part of the venue.

To get inside the show space: there are 4 or 5 steps on both the 21+ side and the all ages side of the venue and then a steep ramp down to the pit area. The booths and bar are inaccessible to anyone who cannot go up a step or two.

If you cannot go down the stairs at all to get to the show floor: after you pay to get in, you'll then be escorted by security back to that curb cut by Voodoo because you'll have to go along the sidewalk, around the patio in front of the venue, and then up the curb cut that's to the left of the venue. You go up the sidewalk a little ways and into a side entrance. The ramp is incredibly steep and unsafe. Manual wheelchair users should be helped down backwards. Power chairs/scooters that struggle with elevation would not be able to make it on this ramp. At the bottom of the ramp there's a tight corner where there will likely be some band gear in the way. Then once you're around that corner you go down a short ramp to the show floor.

Is There A Designated Accessible Seating Area? No, there's not an accessible seating area
Accessible Seating Area Details

There's nowhere to be able to be both safe and able to see at this venue unless you're able to sit in the booths or at the bar. Alternatively, there are like 5 bar stools at the top of the venue by the entrance where you can see the stage from an elevated position, but if you use a wheelchair, the counter is pretty tall and you might have to stretch to see and your view may sometimes be obstructed by activity in the bar. There's also a sign that says minors (under-21) aren't supposed to sit there.

Seating: Yes, there's seating available for those who need it

There are bar stools and booths and possibly some movable chairs.

Restrooms: No, there are no accessible restrooms
Restrooms – Other/Details:

The restrooms are at the top of the venue where the entrance is and are extremely small.
