BarFly's Review of Plan B (CLOSED)
"PLAN B" is CLOSED.
Please check out the "White Owl Social Club" in it's place!
Located in the spot that once housed Acme. While the new management initially got off to a shaky start, it quickly re-established itself as a must visit Portland staple. A variety of acts grace the stage, from rockabilly to techno. HUGE partially covered, semi-heated, patio (great for smoking cigarettes).
Sundays: Hive - still-popular, longstanding, goth night. Guest deejays, fire dancers, and the occasional live act. Dressing up very much encouraged. Cover usually around $5.
Open at 4pm - all seven.
2x pinball, 1x megatouch, 3x skeletons, 1000 x creepy baby doll artifacts.

What a bunch of losers. I'll bet 95% of the crowd is on food stamps. And the music stinks....if one could even call it music.
What a bunch of losers. And the sad thing is that they will always be losers.
uh just went over there cause you guys said it was awesome and i was in the mood for a few dozen cheep beers and it's fuckin closed, c'mon ya can get the hours right on this joint?
Никита и сам глядел на Лави, тоже мечтая обнять ее, и ругал себя в уме за такие мысли последними словами. Вериль посматривала то на одного, то другую, приподняв бровь. В глазах Целительницы прыгали хитрые бесенята, она явно посмеивалась над ними. Но почему? Контрразведчик не понял, зато понял другое он попался. Теперь его под конвоем отведут в каюту и уложат спать. И никакие протесты и ссылки на то, что дел немерено, не помогут. Целители, мать их! Если уж что втемяшится им в голову добьются своего любой ценой. Повторяю, господа, мы пришли с миром! снова заговорил светловолосый. Профессор Сартад зажмурился и принялся монотонно ругаться. Рад, что ты это понимаешь, кивнул тот. Кстати, что ты думаешь по поводу новой политики ордена? Все эти посольства, торговые компании и так далее. Это если они имеются, эти опытные менеджеры, усмехнулся старый орк. А если их нет, да еще и в фирме есть люди, подталкивающие мальчишку вкладывать деньги в заранее проигрышные проекты?

It isn't my scene, but I could see how it would be for a goth, punk or anyone looking for some alternative fun. I'm only writing to make a correction. They do not open until 9pm on Sundays. The website I'd found mentioned they had happy hour 7 days a week, but when we got there, they were closed and we were told to come back at 9pm. We decided to go back at 9 to check the place out. The staff was very cool and it looked to be a fun place to dance and hang out if I was a lot more hardcore - anything.
I love the shows here, they really need to do more punk shows and get rid of all that grind core faggy shit
Last night I Saw Clackamas Baby Killers and Puke'n Rally, And they we're fuckin awesome!!!!!!!!!!1 Plan B needs to put them on the bill MORE and SOON!!!! The chili dogs are dank as fuck!!!!!!
To those that bitch about the service at Plan B: fuck yourself. I've never had a bad service experience there, but this may be explained away by the fact that I'm not a douchebag and I tip. The drinks are stiff, the place is industry friendly, the employees are actual individuals and not corporate drones, and the food is fabulously delicious and un-healthy. Not to mention the music (live or on the sound system) is often something I actually want to listen to. You either get it or you don't.
I just had a friend visit from the LA goth club scene. He ordered a screwdriver, then dropped his jaw when Dean mixed it up for him in a pint glass, mostly vodka with barely enough OJ for color. Second drink, same deal. When my friend bellied up the third time for a Jack and Coke, he had to plead with Dean to dial it down a little.
If this is the bar for you, you'll know it as soon as you walk into the place (and lament having taken so long to discover it). If it isn't, at least get a drink before you go -- it's as good as three anywhere else.
came down to plan b for the first time monday night with some friends and bettie mayhem was KJ'ing! i remember her from other nights around town and she never fails to provide entertainment! we all had a blast, everyone was dancing and singing along. definitely coming back down to karaoke next monday. thanks guys!
Went 'To Altar Of The Riff' there on a Tuesday night, Purple RhineStone Eagle played, it was a free show and it was fuk'n packed ! Balz' Out Show (woah) and the bartender there got every-body real happy, fast too !!, well done son !. Love This Fuk'n Bar !!
Plan B is my favorite hangout on Sunday nights. The bartender is always speedy, always nice, and very sweet to look at. :) The bacon wrapped hot dogs are superb and the crowd is relaxed and inviting. I love the mix of people who hang out at Plan B and THANKFULLY I haven't ran into any snobby hipsters (read: yuppies) there.
I saw AGENT ORANGE there a week or so ago and I had the best Fucking time ever ! I want to see THOR here and KING DIAMOND too !. Anything is possible with these cats !
I went there tonight for a bday party, not really my crowd...but it was alright! Good bands, and I was so impressed by the bartenders. Never waited for a drink despite a huge crowd. They were 4 deep but still gave speedy, friendly service. They know how to handle the crowd and still be friendly, even to people aren't the usual demographic there... which usually doesn't happen at a hipster bar. I'll pass the word that they rock!
I used to pine for a long lost bar in Seattle called The Store Room. That was by far my fav bar ever.
This place usurp'd its place in my heart. Err, and liver.
If you are a real punker and like real people and enjoy punk rock service, this is the joint.
You know, as matter of fact, stay the fuck away. I want it for myself. HA!
Oh don't forget the food.
***** food/service/atmosphere * prices
I like this bar. I like the bartenders. I think because of the size of the place, that people assume that the bar has table service. But if you get off your lazy arse and go to the bar, than you will get served ( a rather strong ) drink in a timely manner. Although different than ACME by far, I like plan B just as much.
Give it a stop by sometime. you will like it. I promise. and if the wait gets to long, just start making out with the stranger next to you hardcore. eventually people will retreat to the bathrooms to puke or jackoff and your wait is over.
clean toilets, friendly bar staff, great beer, excellent atmosphere, killer patio outback,awesome punk scene, live music, the place rocks! pLAN b is the dogs bollocks!
Strange that this focuses so much on service. I never really thought of Plan B as a "diner." It seems like a bar/club to me -- in which case, I plan on *hanging out for awhile*! That means that slow speed doesn't really matter. What I care about is the ambience, the music, and the fellow patrons. So far, Plan B has excelled immensely in all three of those areas!
I guess I can understand how people can get frustrated by something and then come home and write an angry review, but I like this place. It's a good hang-out. If you're that hungry, go to a RESTAURANT.
Remember when the Barfly was unbiased and considerate (In Print) ? Now any cunt with a keyboard can slander businesses for ANY REASON WHATSOEVER. That sucks. Are we to be bullied by our own occasionally unhappy customers who threaten scathing reviews?!!! THAT SUCKS!!!! You and I both know, many people can be UNAPPEASABLE CUNTS only empowered by anonymous reviews.
I said dear god to myself as I watched the very awesome bartender of Plan B pour a heaping amount of sweet, sweet juniper berry love into my G&T. The well priced menu looked very good, all decked with vegetarian goodies from top to bottom, including vegan chili. Nice tap selection, and quick friendly staff make Plan B a nice alternative to the relatively close Green Dragon.
Remove the stick dangling offensively from your flabby flabby ass before you decide to assassinate these hardworking newcomers because I know for a fact that the only reason these cats would EVER give you less than polished, stylish, and stellar service is if: A. You have a shitty attitude, and not a fun shitty attitude, because we all know shitty attitudes can be fun but yours? Nah, yours is just SHITTY. Lighten up. You look better when you lose the furrowed brow. B. Your mom called and told them not to serve you because every time she gives you a $20 spot and lets you out you piss your pants and wreck her car. C. You were so drunk you forgot you were actually at Dante's.
In closing, we all have bad days, maybe you prefer a bartender with their brown nose constantly nuzzling your anus. Me? I like a stiff drink and real people and Plan B meets both of my requirements. Bottoms up.
Plan B is awesome. I've never encountered any thing less than 100% friendly service there. I live in the neighborhood, and it's the perfect neighborhood bar. The music is great (lots of Dead Kennedys, Black Flag, and GBH), the food is pub-tastic (try the bacon wrapped hot dog), and the atmosphere is awesome. It's nice to sit down with a cold beer, listen to some old punk, and watch a truly bad 80s horror flick on the big TV.
As for the service, this ain't the Laurelwood. It's a neighborhood bar. If you walk up to the bar, you will get served in a prompt manner. Enough with the belly-aching hipsters already.
I find it even more interesting that chunko the cat tries to single-handedly discredit every negative review on here by insinuating they're written by the same person. I'd say it's more likely that review was written by a Plan B employee (who are indeed the rudest, most unattentive, slow-serving and inept bartenders I've seen in my eight years of frequenting bars in Portland). Furthermore, as far as accusing another poster of libel, I don't know what exactly the "credit card story" the writer was referring to (because it appears to be curiously absent), but one night when I was there (and the last I night I will ever be there), I witnessed firsthand the bartender getting defensive about having given a customer's credit card to the WRONG CUSTOMER who then signed it out and left with it. Not only did the bartender not apologize for the mix-up, but suggested it was the customer's own fault that somebody else left with their credit card. Direct quote from bartender to the rightfully irate customer: "You know how many cards I have back there? You can't expect me to keep every single one straight!" Uh, outside of serving drinks, isn't that your JOB? Glad it didn't happen to me, but I refuse to go there ever again after having seen how that customer was treated. Their service has always been bad, but that certainly clenched it for me permanently. For the love of god, stay away!
Plan B is NOT your old hipster place, so go fuck off!
Jeff and company has really trasformed hipster bar into a place that is now one of my fav spots. The food is great, great beer selection and the staff is fucking rad. I love music they play and sometimes some great movies are playing on the big screen. The bar was changed from that old sqaure set up to a custom bar with some really rad vinyl records in it. The patio is awesome and heaters a plus. I love Plan B and go there at least twice a week.
I've had nothing but good experiences at Plan B. I've never had to wait, the staff are friendly, the food's great, and the music selection is a breath of fresh, emo- and alt.?-free air. I think they had some missteps early on but, in the past month or two, it's been a very pleasant affair.
I've been here quite a bit since it changed hands.. to be honest I never actually went to acme because the first time I did try to go there it had already been taken over by Plan B. Which IS a much better plan. I love the outdoor seatting area, the fact that they are going to be having lots of shows and the staff is really really friendly. I've never waited long for a drink there and they have great specials and pretty good food.
I'm hoping to host the next Portland Zombie Walk afterparty there for 2008 since I didnt give them enough notice for this year.
dontcha think it's interesting that all of the reviews are written in the same tone and cadence and the only variation is the length of the post? Hmmmmmm. Maybe it has something to do with all of the ACME hipsters who don't get to score all of those free drinks they were getting before. Fret and pout....I have only been in there a few times but virtually every night I heard some crybaby lamenting the loss of the fave bartender that would cut them deals. No wonder the old owner sold it. It was overrun with freebie seeking rich kids. I has been pretty decent so far...maybe the guy who makes claims about his credit card should go talk to the owner and try not to make libel inducing claims on the internet. kinda sounds like bullshit.......
Tried sharing a few pints with some friends at this place since it became the Plan B. Like the tunes an awful lot and vibe, but man the service awful. Couldn't get a whiskey and coke to save your life. The place wasn't even busy at all but you never saw a bartender, and when they did they just looked at you and would walk away. Really dissapointed. Really poorly trained bartenders. Think me and the guys will be having drinks somewhere else till they can get their game on.
Whoa what happened to this place? You think in a saturated market like Portland that it would not be this hard to get a drink. Unfortunately I had not known that ACME had left and been replaced by the Plan B owner and staff. The day I went in there were only a handful of people but it took 22 minutes to get a drink (I had just made a phone call before I got to the bar and was surprised at how long it took and checked the phone). No kidding. I saw people darting back and forth from the bar, and though I stood beneath a giant shark drawn in chalk that said YOU HERE, I was blatantly ignored by the staff. At least three different people looked at me but before I could open my mouth they ran in the back. I thought maybe there were a lot of food orders, but there wasn't even someone in the kitchen. This was perplexing and though I like the punk music and the crowd the staff were less the enlightened on how serve customers. Several people had made the same comment and after I got my whiskey I just finished it and walked out with my friends to other places that were more busy, but you could get a drink in less than half an hour. I hate to see such a good venue go to waste, but they aren't making a loyal following with the service.
