For seasoned Eugenians, the downtown bar scene is synonymous with its namesake: The Barmuda Triangle. It’s a relatively small area that’s easy to get lost in and you’ll likely lose part of your evening as well.
The guide below should help you navigate the infamous area without trepidation.
The groovy ’70s flow that permeates Jameson’s Bar welcomes its normally talkative crowd. Colors in sharp medium-tones and a Las Vegas-chic carpet give this bar true personality. There is never a cover charge at Jameson’s and there is indoor and outdoor seating.
The Davis Restaurant & Bar
Fancy restaurant by day and a poppin’ club by night. Catering mainly to rap and hip-hop fans, there is always a cover charge on weekends. Davis doesn’t serve Long Island Iced Teas or AMFs, which can be popular among college students who are looking to get the most bang for their buck. Dancing is widely accepted and the dance floor is often packed with people eager to get down.
Cowfish – known not only as the most gay-friendly bar in downtown Eugene, but home to a number of electronic-centric DJs performing every weekend. It is typical to see a few drag queens there on a Friday night, as well. Cowfish has the biggest dance floor and the best hoochie drink in town.
Sidelines Grill & Sports Bar
Sports fans will feel more than at home at Sidelines. This bar offers numerous screens and several games for their customers, such as beer pong, darts, pool, foosball and shuffleboard. Sidelines is known to be filled with avid sports fans ready to party on game day.
This bar could be described as the local watering-hole. There is ample outside seating and music that matches a typical Eugenian atmosphere. HorseHead offers several pool tables and without a doubt, the best bar grub in Eugene – especially their fried pickles or mac n’ cheese. They will also deliver to Jameson’s for a $2 delivery charge.
Established in 1911, Luckey’s is one of the oldest businesses in downtown Eugene, as well as one of the oldest bars in Oregon. The venue provides an alternative vibe and often hosts local musicians from around Eugene. Luckey’s also became the home of GLAM night after John Henry’s closed down. Luckey’s often boasts an older crowd, and isn’t the typical place for the raging 21-years-olds.
For many regular downtown bar patrons in Eugene, Starlight Lounge is the first stop. The $3 patron shots and $3 well drinks until midnight, are a hot commodity among customers, as well as leather couches and a sophisticated atmosphere. The patio in the back offers a breath of fresh air for partiers and space for the smoking crowd. Starlight also has a private room fully equipped with a pool table available to rent for birthday parties.
