This place is great! Ed and Walter are the sweetest, most open minded and welcoming people I've ever met. This little dive has become the much needed living room for NoPo's queer populous. The drinks are cheap, the food is edible and the queer dance parties happening there (Bent & Dirt Bag) are the best thing that has happened to NoPo since, well, ever...
Maybe it was a fluke but my first time in the Parrot I had a bad experience. The bartender was this fat girl who was more interested in playing on the internet at the end of the bar with her lesbian girlfriends than actually talking with the customers and pouring us drinks. I felt like the left out high school kid with the girls giggling among themselves at the end of the table. My advice, take an extra ten minutes and drive downtown to a bar with good service.
this is a chill bar with new management and awsome bartenders and with new owners comes better food and a much more chill atmospheremersupple
Since taking over The Blue Parrot the new owners seem to have made it their mission to teach heterosexuals what being a minority is like. They claim it is their goal to turn The Parrot into a safe and fun place for Gay’s and Straights alike but the more I go into the Parrot the more I feel an outcast. The American flag has been replaced with a gigantic rainbow flag and they have fired all but one of the original staff members replacing them with an almost entirely gay/bisexual staff (only one lone hetero remains). If their true intention is to have a Gay only bar in NoPo they are sure to succeed at this point. If they do want to keep any of what remains of there loyal customer base they had better stop trying to teach the hetero folk how if feels to be an out casted minority. Note to owners - Not all of us are out to get you, some of us welcome diversity and you should embrace it as well.
We are the new owners of the Blue Parrot Saloon, effective January 1, 2009. We have spent the past 6 months cleaning up the bar, changing the environment so our patrons can have a fun, safe place to enjoy. This is a Neighborhood bar and our customers reflect a diverse group of people: young/older, straight/gay, blue collar/white collar. Our motto is: "Where everyone's welcome". In reality, this means come have fun and know we work hard to insure you are given respect by our staff and our customers. Please come check us out and you decide.

Shitty north portland dive bar, and I mean that in a good way. The drinks are cheap, the staff sucks unless they know you and the clientele is rough on the eyes. New Years Eve will present you with more fat girl tits than you can spit complimentary cookies from their scary buffet at. Again I mean that in the nicest possible way.
Dive bar without any of portland's scenesters (I love portland's bar scene, but you gotta take a break from that crap sometimes). Strongest drinks I've found north of sewickly's, charming bar staff and a great townie atmosphere. And yes, there's definitely a sad old-bar crowd, but with cheap strong drinks and video poker? You're going to get that crowd.
