7 Reasons Planners Won’t Want to Leave Portland, Oregon

1. The Evergreen and Loyal Legion

In Portland’s Buckman neighborhood (across the river from downtown) sits The Evergreen, an event venue that opened in September 2015 with room for 550. The space is expansive and airy, and the natural light flooding in illuminates historic details like exposed brick walls and an original maple wood floor from 1908. Just beneath and easily accessible from The Evergreen is Loyal Legion, a cozy beer hall with an old-school vibe and (literally) 99 beers on the wall—all of which are local to Oregon. Buy out the dynamic duo, which together accommodate up to 770 guests.
