The Bossanova Ballroom & Bossanova Presents

Home to music & community. Serving subculture & the arts.

Bossanova Ballroom is the oldest continuously operating Music & Dance Hall in Portland, Oregon. Our venue has hosted concerts and events for subculture and arts communities since 1907.

Bossanova Presents acquired stewardship of the Ballroom in 2014. We remain and will continue to be a vital hub for our arts community stakeholders.

We are representative of our community, and we hire those we represent. Our event offerings are as diverse as our staff, and anything that will raise up underground music and art has a place at Bossanova.

We welcome and celebrate all the underground arts, and any performance that elevates creativity. The metal heads, punks, working class, BIPOC, LGBTQ+, contrarians and artists: We strive to welcome everyone, and for them to have an amazing experience while at our venue.
