Portland was once one of the nation's best kept secrets. That was before Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen let the hipster out of the messenger bag and lampooned everything that makes the city great. Yet, as America's fastest-growing city becomes increasingly mainstream, one of its most cherished and appreciated attractions, the quirky and oft-discussed strip club culture, has never quite made headlines. In case you didn't know, there's a running rumor that Portland has the most strip clubs per capita. Whether it's true or not is beside the point. All you need to know is that there are a hell of a lot of strip clubs in Portland. If you're expecting these clubs to be full of bodacious babes like Miami's King of Diamonds, think again. This place is touted as the "Whitest City in America," so think less Buffie The Body and more Tatted Tina and the television show Cheers. Still, it's definitely a scene to explore, whether you're a local or just passing through. Here are eight of the most fascinating clubs you should check out in Portland, each conveniently rated by its atmosphere, dancers, and food.
