BarFly's Review of Club 21 (CLOSED)
Alas, Club 21 closed its doors in January 2017, and is slated for demolition. Sigh.
Club 21 is back in action, following a change in ownership (now in the same capable hands as GDM), and a lovingly-rendered makeover of the old gal. Don't worry - she looks like the best Club 21, ever. And no more of that embarrassing body odor! These are all good changes - enlarged patio, enclosed and ventilated kitchen, new paneling, everywhere, annoying mini-flat screens, nowhere, a droolworthy collection of beer signs and booze memorabilia. The service is good-humored and spot on, and the prices are still dirt cheap. The old E.J.'s* crowd will be well pleased.
Menu may be limited to burgers (the usual meaty goodness, and tasty housemade veggie burgers, too), fries, tots, and onion rings, but they do an outstanding job on all. The onion rings, in particular, are something to write home about.
Regular prices: $3.50 well, $2-4 draft, $5 wine. Menu avg $7.
Open 11:30am-2:30am all 7.
$1 off menu, 50 cents off drafts and well, $1 off wine, 3pm-7pm, every day.
$10 bottomless Mimosas during brunch, 11:30am-4pm, Sat & Sun.
*E.J.'s was an iconic rock club across the street from Club 21 (where the pawnshop is now), 'back in the day.'

To management As I didn't find any other address to approach, I took this opportunity. My name is Sardar, 28 years old piano and other keyboards player with a considerable audition experience such as in USA (SXSW Festival twice and two over the states tour) which where with my alternative rock band by the name of 127. Please visit 127 band.com. to evaluate my playing. But more relevant to the case is my strong passion and experience in Jazz piano for many years. However I do play light style and background piano (solo and also within the band) which I have experience and had auditions in that style Now that I will land in Portland in less than a week to continue my academic studies (Jazz Piano) at master level in Portland University, I have started looking for job as well as auditions in the field of my expertise for any and every evening. I wonder if my abilities do fit into your club possible need or entertainment programs. If so, please in touch me through the below E-mail address.
firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks for your kind attention Sardar
Club 21 has recently changed hands and has undergone a god sent of a makeover. Gone are the cheesy Budweiser banners, withered paint and layers of dust. These have been replaced with some alluring period lighting and a whole slew of cool breweriana that fits so naturally its hard to imagine the place without it. It looks sublime. Other welcome changes include Burgers that dont come from a stack in a frozen bag from Sysco. Ive had their 'Build Your Own' Burger many times now (you have a boatload of choices for this) and I am not BS'ing when I say that it is one of the best in town. Ive learned to request it "medium rare", because otherwise it comes well done, but that is the only trick you need to know. Anyhow, thankfully everything is still pretty much priced like the days of old; $3 wells during Happy Hour, $3.50 the rest of the time; so you dont feel like you personally paid for the remodel (which was one of my fears going in). With the exception of the one located behind the bar, all the TV's are gone. But fear not! They have a projection screen that will be rolled down for those Blazer games as they come along. In the meantime theres always the Pinball to keep you busy. Yes, I think theyve done a knock out job bringing this historic building back to life. It still feels like a dive bar, but now it has some much appreciated style going for it. Other bars in the neighborhood should take note. Living just across the way, I may have finally found my new home away from home.
Jaquee is the reason to go to Club 21~ She is awesome! She treats you right and if you treat her right, you'll have an awesome bartending friend forever!!
The new patio is great, especially now that it's starting to get warm.
I love Club 21 and so should you!
She serves our beer in a pint glass You know this girls got a whole lotta class Dollar beers every Wednesday Night Judy, Judy, You're out of sight!
