The Jade Lounge


Perfect for small gathering - An Eventective User from Portland, OR

We had a birthday party in the Jade Lounge and it was easy, stress free and fun! Eugene is great to work with and a personable host. Many of our guests were interested in booking here for future events. Highly recommend!

Wonderfully cozy and inviting atmosphere - An Eventective User

We had our holiday party at the Slide Inn and it was perfect. The owner/bartender/cook was perfect! He didn't hover and just let us do our own thing, but was willing to help when ask. The food was great. EVERYONE loved the space and the outdoor greeter-kitty was an awesome addition, even if it was just a neighbor's cat!

Best 40th birthday venue ever!!! - An Eventective User from Beaverton, Oregon

I would highly recommend the Slide Inn/Jade Lounge for any private event. I hosted a 40th birthday there and it was just perfect. The slide inn has this cozy but spacious setting, and the owner Eugene is a gem. He will work with you on making sure that it is exactly what you want, and he is very accommodating to any requests. We were able to have a dance party and awesome time, and cocktails were affordable for all of the guests. It is a great deal too, if you pay for food you can have the whole place to yourselves!!! The food was on point, and anything I needed Eugene made sure it was taken care of. If you are planning a party, a wedding reception or anything special I would absolutely tell you this is a great place to do it.

Great place with genuine Portland historical character. - An Eventective User

We hosted an after party for a wedding/ reception here. Loved that it could be converted for a band and dancing! Food was good and generous. Staff was kind and helpful. Reasonably priced! Thank you!

Event Venue - An Eventective User from Vancouver, WA

Great food, service and location! The food was authentic, unique and amazing and Eugene was a great host for our company party. Highly recommend!

Great venue for our off-site - An Eventective User from Portland, OR

This was a great venue for our group of 12. We had plenty of space for discussions and the food was great. The host was very friendly and accommodating. I would definitely recommend this for someone looking to take a team off-site for a day of discussions in a relaxed environment. There was a screen on the wall for us to present (we brought our own projector).

40th birthday - An Eventective User from Hillsboro Oregon

A very unique ambiance that requires no need to bring anything with you. It’s perfect! Parking is minimal so encourage carpool or Uber/Lyft for your guests. The food is excellent! Eugene is fabulous to work with and will do what it takes to make you happy and your event experience memorable. We had a bit of a rocky start only because my guests showed early instead of fashionably late, but...Eugene was very accommodating and at the end of the party took care of us! It was more than I could have asked for! I highly recommend this place! It was a hidden Gem that all my guests were asking how I found this place!

Great place. Wonderful ambience. - An Eventective User from Duluth, MN

Lovely people. Great food.

Great food and service - An Eventective User from TUALATIN

Great place if you want great food, great service and with a funky portland vibe. Eugene was very accommodating with prices and set up. We ended up having our party elsewhere only because parking was going to be an issue, we had 30 guests. However, with a smaller party we would gladly go there. Definitely check it out!! The food is worth it!

Amazing party venue! - An Eventective User from Hood River Oregon

I highly recommend The Slide Inn as the perfect venue to host any intimate gathering! The staff are wonderful to work with and they were very accommodating to our needs! They were diligent throughout the planning process and very attentive during my dad's surprise birthday party! Such a lovely, fun space with delicious food and reasonably priced!

Perfect Private Event Space and Food - An Eventective User from Portland

I just celebrated my 40th birthday at the Slide Inn. This was simply the perfect place ! It is cozy and intimate. It is very well decorated thanks to the owner Eugene's wife art work. Eugene is very responsive either by phone or by email and very easy to work with. He makes his space available for private events. We worked on the party menu together based on what he has on his menu. All of my friends were raving about both the food and the place. The food is not only delicious, it is very healthy and hearty. We had curry sliders burgers which were a big hit, the gnocchis, yam fries, kale chips and Eugene had made small chocolate and caramel tarts for dessert. He also helped by printing drinks tickets. Eugene is passionate about good food. He makes his own mustard, ginger beer, sausages. Check-out his brunch as well. I was there a few times. Delish ! I can only highly recommend this place for both brunch and dinner, as well as private events. Both the experience and food are guaranteed to be a hit ! The Slide Inn and Eugene made my 40th birthday a very special experience. Thank you Eugene ! Carole

Fantastic Venue - An Eventective User from Sherwood, Oregon

We had our wedding reception there and it was fabulous!! I cannot say enough about this place. The Slide Inn was very eclectic with a very chill vibe. We had about 40-50 people attend and it was very roomy with a good flow to it. I pretty much let Eugene pick the menu and he did a spectacular job because the food was fantastic!! I would highly recommend this place for any type of event.

Meeting a Sucess - An Eventective User from PORTLAND, OR

Our meeting went extremely well at the Slide Inn. I was the host for a Vistage business group and really enjoyed with owner/chef Eugene. The setting actually caused the group to "loosen up" and that worked. The food was fantastic. Simple use of computer and projector on a vintage screen was fine for us. I easily recommend Slide Inn and Eugene.
