I would say, catch a good band and you will love the Big Easy. From taking a date there, to hanging with some close friends the Big E is a must at least once in your night life quest.
The Big "Sleazy"!!!.
The Big Easy - A great spot in Portland for Blues. A slightly older crowd. The only spot in town for good music. Good drinks. Gets crowded later in the evening. Good dance floor. Get there by 9PM to get a table - or else you stand for the night.........
Look for Laurel and Rick (bald, tattoo'ed guy in the front) - and their sidekick "Acorn"
