|The new state-of-the-art music venue offers a robust schedule of nationally touring bands of all genres as well as the best of the local scene. The spacious three-story space, formerly a movie theater and then a sports bar, has been completely redesigned and rebuilt as a performance venue. Port City Music Hall was committed to working with local businesses in developing the venue working closely with Portland architect Mark Sengelmann (ALPHAarchitects) and interior designer Joshua Bergey (Joshua Bergey Design Studios, Portland/Philadelphia) to create a comfortable yet elegant multi-use space. Special attention was paid to acoustic elements and outfited a top-of-the-line sound system for the venue. The central music hall can accommodate audiences of up to 550. Depending on the genre of music and the size of the expected crowd, flexible seating arrangements can offer cabaret seating at small tables; seats in rows; or standing room and a large dance floor.
