Originally called Cotillion Hall, the building was erected in 1914 and was used as a ballroom dance theatre. It grew to prominence throughout the Great Depression but hit new heights in the 1960s. Following the San Francisco hippy movement, a stream of counterculture values travelled north to Portland. The Crystal Ballroom became a hub for events themed around psychedelic rock, jazz, blues, and beat poetry nights. Tina Turner, Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Little Richard, and Jimi Hendrix are all slated to have played – although some are considered urban myths! Now part of the McMenamins empire, the Crystal Ballroom is still a brilliant concert venue with a bizarre spring-loaded dance floor and house-brewed beer. Image Credits: Matt Walk Wild
