This historic building has gone through a multitude of incarnations over the last century, from mercantile to bank to bar. Getting back to its World War II roots, the downstairs serves Portland’s premier dim sum fare. PortFringe takes over Empire’s upstairs venue – a destination for local and national acts alike. Fill up on steam buns and climb the stairs for the show.
Please note: This venue is 18+ or with guardian.
