With Outlaws out, who could move in?

Empty Ballroom

Last month, the sometimes country, sometimes rock ‘n roll club Outlaws closed due to alleged financial shenanigans. Whenever I walk by and see the “for lease” signage, I wonder what could go into that space.

Over the summer, I took dance classes at Viscount Studios and dreaded when there was a show at Outlaws because it meant a ton of people on the waiting to get into the club and the sound would drown out whatever music was being played during the dance class. (Although, maybe there is a market for Salsa Hardcore somewhere…)

Given the popularity of the Doug Fir, which is just up the street, as a music venue attracting local and national bands alike, I wonder who would want to move into that space now and continue booking bands, regardless of genre.

So, Portland, what would you like to see move into that space on E. Burnside?
