Downtown Portland, Oregon’s newest meeting and event space, The Corner, is located inside of Mother’s Velvet Lounge & Café. Available for private gatherings, business meetings, seminars, conferences and team-building, the venue offers two packages: the basic space rental for alcohol- and food-free meetings and events, and full space rental, which includes a fully stocked bar.

Portland will be home to the first Ritz-Carlton in the Pacific Northwest. Developer BPM Real Estate Group is bringing the brand to the city, with an anticipated opening in early 2023. Plans call for a 35-story tower with 251 hotel rooms and 138 residential units, including eight penthouses.

 

One of the best things about the chill of winter is the warmth of a roaring fire. Northwest venues are particularly adept at creating spaces where guests can gather and collaborate around a stunning fireplace that is as much a work of art as it is a necessity. Here are some of our favorites.
