Makes a great memento of your visit to McMenamins in the Pacific Northwest!
Nestled in North Portland's industrial neighborhood, underneath the mighty span of the city's Fremont Bridge, the legendary White Eagle Cafe and Rock 'n' Roll Hotel echoes with tall tales of resident spirits, poker games and Shanghai tunnels, as it has since its opening in 1905.
Originally a civic and social hub for Portland's Polish immigrants, today the place is known for its vintage charm and nightly rock 'n' roll shows. By establishing residency at the White Eagle in the early '70s, rockers such as The Holy Modal Rounders and blues man Robert Cray helped launch the bar's live music tradition. Drop-in acts such as the Isley Brothers, ZZ Top and Big Walter Horton were followed in the '80s by Northwest music icons including Paul deLay, Curtis Salgado, Norman Sylvester, Terry Robb, Pete Karns, Jon Koonce and Steve Bradley.
