Eugene, OR, United States for Barmuda Triangle

Between the legal weed, heavy local beers and a plethora of bars only a stones throw from the next, Eugene does not disappoint. Ever been to a place where the locals claim to drink a lot? The wish they were as hearty as these Oregonians. The bars in downtown Eugene will serve up a night of hazy hilarity followed by a much needed blood mary and a very black cup of coffee in the morning. So without too much more rambling and to save what little self-respect I have, here is a list of the bars located in the Barmuda Triangle of Eugene.

Jameson’s Bar

From The Website: The groovy ’70s flow that permeates Jameson’s Bar welcomes its normally talkative crowd. Colors in sharp medium-tones and a Las Vegas-chic carpet give this bar true personality. There is never a cover charge at Jameson’s and there is indoor and outdoor seating.

The Davis Restaurant & Bar

From The Website: Fancy restaurant by day and a poppin’ club by night. Catering mainly to rap and hip-hop fans, there is always a cover charge on weekends. Davis doesn’t serve Long Island Iced Teas or AMFs, which can be popular among college students who are looking to get the most bang for their buck. Dancing is widely accepted and the dance floor is often packed with people eager to get down.


From The Website: Known not only as the most gay-friendly bar in downtown Eugene, but home to a number of electronic-centric DJs performing every weekend. It is typical to see a few drag queens there on a Friday night, as well. Cowfish has the biggest dance floor and the best hoochie drink in town.

Sidelines Grill & Sports Bar

From The Website: Sports fans will feel more than at home at Sidelines. This bar offers numerous screens and several games for their customers, such as beer pong, darts, pool, foosball and shuffleboard. Sidelines is known to be filled with avid sports fans ready to party on game day.

HorseHead Bar

From The Website: This bar could be described as the local watering-hole. There is ample outside seating and music that matches a typical Eugenian atmosphere. HorseHead offers several pool tables and without a doubt, the best bar grub in Eugene – especially their fried pickles or mac n’ cheese. They will also deliver to Jameson’s for a $2 delivery charge.

Luckey’s Club

From The Website: Established in 1911, Luckey’s is one of the oldest businesses in downtown Eugene, as well as one of the oldest bars in Oregon. The venue provides an alternative vibe and often hosts local musicians from around Eugene. Luckey’s also became the home of GLAM night after John Henry’s closed down. Luckey’s often boasts an older crowd, and isn’t the typical place for the raging 21-years-olds.

Starlight Lounge

From The Website: For many regular downtown bar patrons in Eugene, Starlight Lounge is the first stop. The $3 patron shots and $3 well drinks until midnight, are a hot commodity among customers, as well as leather couches and a sophisticated atmosphere. The patio in the back offers a breath of fresh air for partiers and space for the smoking crowd. Starlight also has a private room fully equipped with a pool table available to rent for birthday parties.
