The Slammer is where nights go to die, often at the hands of one-too-many games of Big Buck Hunter. Centrally located and dangerously close to the excellent Rum Club cocktail bar, it’s become a haven for people who call Southeast Portland home. The wraparound bar is oddly lit and TVs pepper the walls, but its dive-y charm is undeniable. And come holiday season (and sometimes into springtime if no one’s taken the time to dismantle the decorations), its light display unparalleled.
