Bossanova Ballroom and Supper Club
Portland’s Best Kept Secret The Bossanova is a newly renovated, 2 level, 650 person capacity venue.
We specialize in all types of events, including live music shows, weddings, private parties, and corporate events. From the moment you walk into the Bossanova, you can feel the refined ambiance of a classic, turn-of-the-century social club infused with the energy of a hip, urban lounge. Our vision incorporates the elegant, art-deco stylings of an original, old-world Freemason’s Hall into a 21st century nightclub with a state-of-the-art Rat Trap 5 sound system, and a lighting assembly that is adept at creating the right mood for your style.
There is plenty of space to mix it up in an atmosphere that is festive and relaxing at the same time. The main dance floor is crafted from beautiful Brazilian Cherry, and features a red, velvet-curtained stage that is dynamic and flexible, so it can accommodate live talent from solo-performers to Big Bands.
The monitor board can be located on stage or off- whichever you prefer. The double-height ballroom boasts 25 foot ceilings, with a view from the Mezzanine level above, which features an antique Billiards Room with 6 full-size tables and a separate private lounge; either or both of these sections would be perfect for VIP entertaining if you are so inclined. The Main Lounge, located to the left of the Ballroom, features cut-out window seating, so you'd be hard-pressed to find a bad seat in the house. This venue has the ability to be sectioned into various compartments and is perfect for hosting all-ages shows with 21/over restricted areas.
It seamlessly combines the original 1909 charm with all the amenities of a brand new space. The electrical and plumbing systems were completely updated in the Summer of 2004, and the entire building was re-designed to meet 2004 Fire Code and Life Safety specifications.
