A converted motor lodge became a design destination, now you need to book well in advance
Only one place to stay in Portland has a hair salon, tattoo parlor, thriving music venue and sells thong underwear as a souvenir item – Jupiter Hotel, in the Lower Burnside neighborhood. What was once a 1960’s motor lodge was recaptured in 2004 when it opened as Jupiter with all new rooms and a central courtyard where the parking lot used to be. What coolhunting.com calls a “HUB of effervescent creativity,” with a diverse cross-section of people, is where 4E cools it jets on the Northwest weekend getaway.
Doug Fir is the log cabin music venue, built underground on-site with modern fixtures and a disco floor. It’s perfectly Portland. If you can catch the Portland Cello Project doing their “Extreme Dance Party” on July 20/21 or Seattle favorites “The Young Evils” at the end of July, you’ll see what we mean. If you are so inclined ask about the DreamSUITE for a penthouse level accommodation, or the “Midnight Special” where rooms booked after midnight are $59.
Until Sept. 30th they are offering an advance purchase discount, that allows you to hold a room without paying upfront. Cancel 24-hours prior, no questions asked. It’s loud, young and keeps late hours and for all those reasons the New York Times said: “the intersection of local culture and contemporary design makes Jupiter one of Portland’s most eclectic places.”
