This is a gem. If you like jazz and you like food and you aren't an uptight jerk, you'll be as happy as a clam.
Outstanding place to hear jazz and eat pizza. And other things. Drinks are well made. Service is fantastic. Great vibe. Hope they can bring more big time acts like Tain Watts and Orrin Evans. Filling a needed gap since the end of Jimmy Maks. One problem. They allow people to stand in front of reserved tables blocking our view. If you’re going to allow SRO, make sure they’re not blocking the view and sound. More...
The funk jazz band Fade to Black was fantastic great service & ambiance
Outstanding Jazz, delicious food, charming people and all in a comfortable, cozy atmosphere.
This is my favorite jazz venue in Portland. The setting is intimate and the music is always good....7 days a week. Great pizza too!
Beautiful and unique atmosphere... wonderful music and people.
Great place for jazz
Live jazz. Great food. Always a fun time. Local PDX Jazz scene since Jimmy Mack’s closed. Nice outdoor patio area too!
Amazing night in here! Reasonable price of pizza(and was really good) and drinks, very good quality of music ($10 cover was worth it!)
Perfect spot for some food, drinks and live jazz.
One of my new favorite spots in the city. My fiancée and I come here often for date nights. The music is absolutely phenomenal in addition to the vibe, great selection of drinks, and amazing pizza. Big fan of this place!
Strangely upscale pizza with a beautiful patio if the weather is good, and pretty awesome cocktails. It becomes a music venue/piano bar at night, but I've not stayed that late. I just had cocktails and pizza with friends, which were awesome. More...
We had seats on the patio tonight (8/31/2019). The place was really busy due to fan turnout for Tahirah Memory. Our server was courteous and effective despite a large number of customers. She never lost her sense of humor! We will be back. More...
Great place for live music, good for a date night or just to hang with friends you will definitely enjoy the food and service. they have large outdoor patio for these beautiful summer days and warm evenings.. Check it out for yourself trust me you won't be disappointed! More...
Atmosphere and food reminds me of Denver! :-) The bartender makes a mean bloody mary without Vodka. I'd defintely recommend this spot!
Great hang. Wonderful Brazilian Jazz. Good pizza
Great drinks and the truffle pizza slice is our of this world! $10 per person cover charge to stand inside (all seats were taken) for the entertainment was insane, so I deducted 1 star.
I love this place! Just know depending on what time you go it can be very very packed. They now charge to enter and honestly it's so understandable. A lot of people were coming in and not buying anything or much so the place was struggling. I hope this place stays open forever. The Jazz is the best. More...
Nice, reasonably priced place.
The atmosphere was amazing, what a great spot for live music on a Sunday afternoon! The singer and piano man, were stunning and so talented, really set the mood for a nice warm atmosphere. The cocktails are absolutely delicious and at a reasonable cost, great spicy bloodys and the coffee is outstanding. We did not get to try much of their menu tho, the restaurant had run out of some of the necessary items to make brunch...so the 4 of us shared and tried their crepes as a appetizer but were not completely impressed. Moved on and ate somewhere else, but will be back to try again on a better stocked day. More...
Fabulous pizzeria with craft cocktails. This joint is fantastic! Excellent pizza, astute adult beverages, fab decor and groovy music. Parking can be tough but hey. It's Mississippi Street. PRO TIP: The Where There's Smoke There's Fire cocktail is bold and flavorful. Best restaurant I've tried in a while. ✌ ✌ More...
Different food offerings, but delicious. Wait staff just needs to listen better.
Wow is all I can say.I went here on a family outing. We all enjoyed our dishes very much. The pesto eggs benedict is superb. The egg and pesto paired with arugula and light and flaky pastry makes a wonderful combination. The lemon ricotta pancakes are a delicacy. They come with real maple syrup, but that is not needed as the lemon ricotta topping more than satisfies.The outdoor seating is nice. I hope to come back here for breakfast again soon. There was no wait time as this is a little nook in Portland that has yet to be discovered. I am sure that soon it will be busy with lines out on the street just like the adjacent restaurants. I would also like to try out the pizza menu one day. Also a shout out to the very polite and courteous wait staff. More...
Generally known for their jazz music every night and their great cocktails, they also have a great happy hour. Cheap slices of pizza, reasonable drinks, low key atmosphere. Great place for a quieter drink after work. More...
Great food and beautiful atmosphere!!@
Jazz. Beer, drinks, decent edible food
Great pizza (get the truffle slice!), beer, & music
If you want to spend a great time listening to best local jazz artist and drink a bunch of beers this is your place.
It was good. The entrance fee was $10, but we waited outside until the door closed @ 10pm
There is an outdoor area that is dog and kid friendly.
Great place for drinks and jazz.
This place has the best live music in Portland!
Great patio, good drinks, nice tunes, didn't try the pizza.
Went during happy hour and enjoyed cheap pizza by the slice. Good craft beers too. Nice patio area to enjoy food and drink outside.
A great jazz!
Great place with a fantastic venue and phenomenal bands. I've never had a bad experience here and will happily continue to come for dinner and a show
Great live music and good ...
Loved the live music sound. Seems like a nice place to go just to have a drink or two and enjoy the jazz bands.Ordered the Oregon Truffle pizza and it was superb, one of the best I've ever had.
This is a delightful little spot. Great jazz and they often have artists exhibit in the space. I haven't eaten the food but they have great drinks and the ambiance (inside and out) is laid back and relaxing.
Great music and service, cool place!
Caitlin V M.
In town from La on vacation and sat at the bar and bartenders were so sweet. Food and cocktails were great and the Jazz band Thankusomuch was playing and killed it!
This is a fantastic venue that you don't want to miss! My husband and I accidentally made reservations for the wrong night, but they still took excellent care of us. Even though it was our own fault, the owner felt bad and bought us a drink. We waited a little while and ended up with a table right up front due to a no-show. The Chris Brown quartet on Wednesday night was phenomenal! (Greg Goebel is wicked at the piano and John Nastos tore that sax up!) The food and service were wonderful as well. Garlic knots, Caprese salad, pizza, it was all fantastic. Don't miss the Tipperary cocktail - yum! The atmosphere was fun and the crowd was great. We had so much fun, we made reservations for the following night. This is definitely a new regular hang out for us. More...
My absolute favorite place in Portland. The nicest owners, bartenders, servers etc. ever. This environment is unbeatable! Reasonably priced and delicious food (pesto mac is my personal favorite) along with great local music. This place treats its customers and the musicians with the utmost respect, love and admiration. Not a place you want to miss out on. More...
Great music, food and company! The environment has a very cool, casual vibe. Highly recommend!
You've left out high quality music at a very reasonable price. Love the 1905, on my way there now!
What a great spot. Monday night jam with Ron hosting was a treat. Beautiful pizza. We'll be back for more.
Wonderful brunch on the patio listening to the music.
Excellent Jazz bar with wide selection of drinks and amazing pizza
happy hour has 1 dollar slices!
I almost don’t want to post this because I feel like I have found a precious gem! As a native Portlander, I am a foodie and I also enjoy the arts. The 1905 is such a magical combination of both! To top things off (besides the amazing food and music) the service is top notch! Every server I have ever had is very attentive and thoughtful and truly takes the time to take care of us. My glass is never empty. I am a bit hard to impress and this place deserves a shout out! If you are looking for a chill yet classy ambiance, to be entertained and taken care of all at the same time, The 1905 is it. *** On top of that, they have the best pizza comparable to only the most authentic and delicious pizza you might get on the East Coast or in Chicago! More...
It is such a treat to go listen to great jazz! Impromptu decision to go outside our lane and it was so worth it! Aaron was so accommodating, Holly is so friendly, and lovely, and Ireland was our server and was a doll. I can’t wait for next week! Thank you 1905! More...
That new server with the head scarf is . Good pizza too
Great space, staff and the music was top notch
This place is POPPIN’ and the pizza and dranks are STELLAR. Friendly, accommodating staff and a super vibey space. 12/10 would recommend.
The service was fast and friendly, and everything we tried from the menu was amazing. Highly recommend the Oregon Truffle pizza!
Best pizza in Portland!
I LOVE THIS PLACE! I have been twice and after my friends and I getting "asked to leave" bar bar's music venue we were angry and wanted a place to have a fun girls night with live music. I remembered about this place and we showed up while a live jazz band was playing and we had so much fun! The music was amazing and the atmosphere was great too! More...
Great atmosphere, good pizza great Jazz
Great spot!! I love this little neighborhood. You have to try the Oregon truffle pizza. Wowwwww!
Lovely night out with the husband! Walked into 1905 with live jazz and a great atmosphere.Highly recommend checking this spot out if you enjoy live music.
The Butter lettuce salad was really super good. And remarkably enough, the pizza was yummy....environment was hip and comfortable and on Friday night the music rocked! If the weather is good...keeping in mind where we are...there’s a really nice patio...I want to try the Mac and cheese and the garlic knots..those are another visit! More...
Great jazz. Great food. Great drinks.
I have visited The 1905 a few times over the years and have always had excellent service and a great experience! The staff is extremely friendly, the food is fantastic, and the nightly events are always enjoyable. I would confidently recommend this place to any of my friends or family. During pizza week is an exceptionally great time to give it a try as they always come up with a uniquely delicious slice. Check this place out if you are looking to have some fun, try some great food, and meet some great people! More...

Just had a fantastic brunch this weekend at The 1905. Fabulous live jazz music and the best breakfast (eggs Benedict w/ hollandaise & pesto) I've ever had. Our sweet server, Ireland, couldn't have been more attentive or helpful. Loved our entire experience at The 1905! More...
What an amazing place! This place reminds me of going to your friends house and then like 30 other people show up unexpectedly. Its like family. Sometimes service might be slow but how can you complain with the incredible food and music. Be chill. This is THE place to be if you love music, amazing food, an really great cocktails. I would come every night if I could. So fun! More...
The 1905 is one of my favorite places to listen to great local jazz artists while enjoying the chill vibe of the club's atmosphere itself. Fantastic service, great drinks and the Oregon Truffle pizza... a great way to unwind after a busy week. More...
Absolutely wonderful good food. Service was top notch too!
Un lugar cálido y acogedor donde puedes disfrutar de una buena pizza y tragos mientras escuchas música de Jazz en vivo El espacio interior es algo pequeño pero genera de por sí un ambiente muy íntimo.Si el tiempo lo permite, tiene mesas en un simpático jardín ,para quien así lo prefiera.Es ideal para compartir una velada con amigos.La visita valió la pena. More...
Great jazz music.
Fantastic staff, atmosphere, and music. The drinks are on point and the pizza is absolutely delicious!
Wonderful space for jazz in the neighborhood
My favorite place in Portland, especially during Ron Steen's FANTASTIC Monday-night Jam Sessions. World Class classic-jazz pros and tons of skilled amateurs too. - Pizza is terrific but they have other things. I try to find a starving jazz-fan student and share my pizza with him, especially if I get to hear him play, later. DO NOT MISS this wonderful place which is building a nationwide reputation! More...
1905 has the best pizza in Portland! Baked to perfection. Staff was very gracious and welcoming. Music was quite enjoyable.
We were well taken care of. Needed to move to a low table as my friend’s injured leg couldn’t handle high chairs. We were quickly accommodated. Food was delicious and service was excellent. Music by Subtonic Trio was amazing. We will be back. More...
Stumbled on this place walking down Mississippi and I feel terrible writing a review when the wall behind the bar clearly states "DON'T TELL." But! Live jazz, low lights and candles, you can see people throwing pizzas in the open kitchen area (smells amazing), strong drinks, open late... so glad we found the 1905 and we'll be back again! More...
I like this ppace..I'd like it more if I could ever get a seat inside. That's kind of my fault though, I'm not a jazz head to spend hours and hours waiting for the main act just so I can have a front row seat. Food is good, drinks are better and the music? Well, it's great. I recommend sitting and order from a waiter. The bartenders seem to only really care for pretty girls. More...
Come for the pizza. Stay for the jazz! We’ll be back
Lovely newly planted patio, tasty morsels, great service, and excellent live music.
Plenty of delicious brunch dishes and interesting cocktails. Live music made conversation a bit challenging. Nice outdoor seating area. No line when we had brunch--on Mother's Day no less. A hidden gem in the Mississippi neighborhood? More...
I’ve enjoyed the music, great food and service. I love this place.
Tiny spot, but so adorable. Great jazz. Great patio. Fabulous food. Servers were prompt and sweet as could be. It’s a hidden gem.
This is about the first place I've been to that focuses on a jazz style ish environment. Really good atmosphere. A little pricier but well worth it. Good people and great music. When I went it was quite popular. The food was good and the drinks where satisfying. I went here during Pizza week. They had a vegan pizza but it was still quite amazing. More...
Super amazing place. We went there for brunch on Sunday and it was delicious. Their patio is super cute and chilled. Our server was super nice and attentive. I ordered the pesto eggs Benedict and a grapefruit mimosa. We also went back at night. They had live music and their drinks we pretty amazing too! Super recommend! More...
Great food and service! Having the live music was also an added bonus! Will definitely be back!
Excellent pizza. Darnell Newton played and did not disappoint! Drinks were good. Service was mixed but I wouldn’t let it stop me from going back. If you want to sit inside, make a reservation! More...
Live Jazz and Pizza - what more could you want?We live nearby The 1905 and it is our goto.Great, accessible local talent.Yeah it's loud - but what do you expect when you're there to hear live music?Glad to see they're now on Open Table to handle reservations More...
Had a grear time tonight. $5 dollars to get in but that's nothing compared to the amazing performance offered by the live jazz band!
A cozy, comfy, non pretentious little jazz bar, with a small stage, good wine and good service from friendly folks.
End of pizza week. I went in after my shift at Sidecar 11 realizing I hadn't eaten all day. I walked in 20mins before close, and got 2 slices of the amazing pizza week special, but also the Oregon Truffle (my favourite). I am a fan of the crust, and the staff. Big thank you! I was starving. More...
Very good pizza and cocktails. Highly recommended the fries and garlic knots too. Plus they have well made cocktails and good service. As a venue for local jazz, I'm all in. More...
I went here on a Saturday night for something different with my girlfriend. We aren't huge Jazz enthusiasts but love live music. 1905 was wonderful, the Kareem Kandi Band was playing that night. They had 3 friends in the audience that went on stage and performed with them periodically. The energy was high, the place was packed and the music was amazing. The food was an added bonus as it was also good. In the summer and on warm nights they have a garage door with an outdoor seating area. Over all 1905 has a nice charm, good food/service and a great atmosphere. We will definitely be going back! More...
Of all the 2019 Pizza Week participants The 1905's entry looked the most appealing. It was creative and light, not a gut bomb.While I'm not fan of the stand in line and order at the bar trend the bartender was nice. This process seems to limit re-orders and tips so not sure why some places opt for it.I love Portland Pizza week! More...
This spot combines great food, solid drinks and a relaxing and fun atmosphere. Not easy to hit on all of those marks and they succeeded.
I did not eat here and the servers seemed a bit frazzled but you can go up to the bar yourself and order drinks. The great thing about this place is the music for sure! We went here on a Wednesday night and the band performing was absolutely fantastic! More...
Amazing place!! If you are in Portland, you must go here! Holly and Aaron are so warm and welcoming! Our server, Ryan, could not have been nicer or more accommodating! The pizzas and cocktails are fantastic, and the music...? Unbelievably great! Great vibes from everywhere. Can not recommend highly enough. I'd give it 100 stars if I could!! More...

Great jazz, great pizza, great cocktails, and now yummy brunch! Love it!
The bartender working last night (3/31/19) was awesome. Great service. We missed the music but his service made our night!
H O Donnell
This place has it all! Outstanding music, staff, cocktails & food. Atmosphere is intimate & comfortable. For my birthday weekend in Portland, this was my favorite haunt! Go here, you will have a great time!!! More...
Amazing live music for a $5 cover. The pizza is decent. The drinks seemed strong and herbaceous to me, I was very happy with them. The service was a bit slow but friendly. Would definitely come back, especially on a Jazz night. Street parking. More...
Neat little place with good drinks.
Arrived at 8:45, almost two hours late for a friend/co-worker's birthday party. The place was packed on a Tuesday night, but to be fair our party took up a good quarter of the space. The $5 cover was more than fair for the fantastic set that the Matt Sazima trio (and friends) put on. The bartender poured me one of the best Torontos I've ever had, and the Luchagroni was a very earthy and unique take on a negroni, made with Vida mezcal that you could smell from across the bar and a flamed rosemary spring that really stood out. Too bad I had to neck it quick before we made our way to Prost up the street. The garlic knots were great too, super garlicky with just the right amount of doughyness. I'll definitely be back soon. More...
Awesome bar! Food was great! Atmosphere was perfect! The Jazz Band was off the chart!! Our mixologist was incredible! Couldn't ask for a better night. It was a packed house for the live band and they killed it. We had the garlic knots and Brussels and they tasted great. We had beer and mixed drinks all night. Parking is scarce so we to a Lyft. Get there early if you want a good table. You can have happy hour too. Cheers! More...
Good jazz and good pizza
really good pizza, awesome jazz club
Wonderful place to meet for great food and the best live music daily!! Arron the owner is awesome!
Mother's day was a blast thank you for having the Noah Simpson trio they were jamming I do hope you will have them back especially with the big Hammond Organ
The 1905 is more than another bar in the Mississippi neighborhood, it is a water hole for anyone that cares about good food (brunch or dinner), handcrafted cocktails, and good jazz. This place was a miraculous find when I stumbled across it in August, and has me coming back on a weekly basis. Highly recommend for a good, loud night on a weekend, or a fun weeknight of pizza and booze.Keep up the good work! More...
Great venue for live jazz and good pizza.
Awesome live Jazz, pizza, beer, and cocktails!
Small and friendly place with a big patio with outdoor seating. Jazz trio plays brunch on weekend starting at noon, get there early to get a seat if you don't have reservations.
Update:Finally, we made a proper visit! We came to try their highball week cocktail, the Bananas Imposter, and lucked out that it was also happy hour. My partner and I both got the Bananas Foster, a deliciously fruity, but not too sweet concoction of rum, pineapple, orange, orgeat and vanilla bitters, with a torched banana segment. I would get this again or try to make it at home. We also had happy hour pizza slices: one cheese ($1!) and two Oregon truffle ($3). Wow! I loved the Oregon truffle pizza since it didn't have red sauce and it had the perfect ratio of cheese, truffle flavor, and crispy crust. The cheese slice was good too. We will be back for more pizza and come in later so we can catch the jazz - we tried to pop in later but the place was packed, so we only stayed for a few minutes, but the music was great! The guy outside said you can make reservations so I think we will plan for us to go with friends next time to enjoy some music and pizza. More...
Villeda Ily Rosaura
Such a blast!! Food and service spectacular... Great music as well
Can I just say: The loveliest jazz! AND NOW SUNDAY BRUNCH! Yum - come to the 1905, peeps - it's the sweetest!
Great pizza, garlic knots, and mozzarella sticks. Cool venue! Super swank. And great jazz. Get there a bit early to get seating. It's a small venue. We got there 15 minutes before the start of the show and got the last table. Highly recommend this spot. This will be a highlight of my trip to Portland for sure! More...
The best Jazz in town and great pizza. Now they’ve added brunch with some delicious options. I would highly recommend the Burrata Breakfast sandwich.
Everything on your list and more. You guys have the best pizza I have had in Portland. I am from New Jersey originally ,and we pride ourselves on pizza. You guys pissed me off a little you are so good. The music was top shelf last night. . It was a great place to hang out after the Mardi Gras parade. I may have to move up to North Portland because of you guys. More...
Great music, great food, great people.
This place is really cool!! The first time I've been there and they had a live jazz band who were AWESOME. The beer is great and they have really good pizza too!
Great music and drinks, but need more vegan options for food
Mmmmm pizza is off the hook!
My new favorite place for White Pizza ... Pepperoni pizza the kids had was also pretty solid.
Dollar slice happy hour!!!
A great place to hear some great music and eat some good Italian food :)
We ordered online, and took to go, which worked pretty well, I went to the bar and said I had an online order. The mozzarella sticks were excellent! instead of the normal frozen, processed you remember from being a kid, they cut up a mozzarella ball in slices, then bread and fry those. The flavors are much fresher, and the mozzarella's real flavor comes through. The truffle pizza was full of flavor and the crust had a great crunch and chewiness that is really enjoyable. They also have a small stage for live music. More...
awesome music. their pizza is very good too
Great space snd serious talent!
Gracia Elena Durón
Loved it! Great pizza, and several original variations. Must try! They always fill them with ingredients, so much so, that even though the crust is thin, I get full with only 2 slices, when normally I'd eat three! (And I consider myself a normal eating person!) They have live jazz concerts the first two Thursdays of every month. And the staff is very friendly, they can even make you cocktail drinks that are not in the menu, so totally worth checking them out! More...
I love this place. I love that there is an early set of music and I don't have to wait until 9 or 10... I love that I can get nice drinks and simple, delicious food while chilling to some really cool Portland jazz artists. So fun every time. Thank you making pizza that actually tastes good! Keep it up! More...
Great performances! And Pizza
I LOVE THIS PLACE! I am so in love with Sundays at the 1905. I first came here for my friend's birthday and it was a blast. The food is delicious and affordable, the staff is friendly and laidback, and the live jazz is remarkable. I came for "Other Barry" and it was fantastic. I cannot wait to take all of my out of town friends to this spot and to eat my weight in mozzarella bites! More...
Awesome drinks, awesome pizza, great service and I love the live music! The outdoor space is really lovely as well and you can still have a view/hear the inside music. One of my favorite establishments in Portland by far! More...
Order the damn truffle pizza, have you ever wanted to erase your memory and taste something like is brand new all over again? Well thanks to the 1905, I have decided change my field of study to neuroscience because I am literally trying to erase my memory just to tast e that damn truffle pizza again. I don't know anything about their service because I literally blacked out when I ate that truffle pizza.. what music? I didn't hear that high school band play because I was blacked out on how great that damn pizza again. 5/5 would probably fight a mediums-sized bear for that pizza again.. More...
Best pizza on Mississippi
Karen Maria Capo
Always great jazz and their pizza is the real thing!
There was live music, the food was great and I really enjoyed the drinks, the 1905 has a good atmosphere.
Excellent Jam Sessions - The best jazz musicians from the area seem to congregate here on monday nights. The pizza is great and not very cheap. Seating is very limited, when I arrived for the session, it was about 40 minutes before I sat down. More...
Very cool, intimate music venue and a great addition to N. Mississippi.
Great pizza, wonderful music venue.
K Lynn Trunfio
very good venue, small, intimate great atmosphere. We did not have reservations, they put us at a table right in front of the stage.
So I went back to the 1905 last night. My favorite music venue in Portland so far. I ordered a pizza last night, small 1/2 Truffle, 1/2 Sausage. The pizza is good, not excellent. I will definitely be going back for music. I wish the pizza dough and crust were better. I will admit I am a pizza snob. Unsure if I will order pizza next time. Great service by Ryan. More...
If one rated places by the quality of the music there, this place would get 6 stars cause the Charlie Porter Quintet was most amazing. Even without the music this is a pretty fine place--i imagine even better in warm weather cause their outdoor patio is twice as big as the indoor part. Really friendly service here, tasty pizza and a wide drink selection. More...
Good pizza, nice wines and beers, but especially the live jazz. Yay!
Best jazz spot in town! Hands down!
One of the most important pizza places on the west coast. Great food, music, and helpful and friendly staff.
Local crowd, great Jazz music! Food was great as well. Could keep more beer choices.
La Shonda Curry
Awesome place to be!! Very welcoming and down to earth atmosphere. The owner and wait staff are really great and not to mention the pizza you can't just eat one slice so buy a whole pie.
Great food, even gf pizza! Of course the main attraction is the music!! Sometimes they don't have the GF pizza crust but they have other options and reasonable drinks.
Great music across the jazz spectrum, musically hospitable thanks to Aaron Barnes musical roots and killin pizza! Plus all ages to hear great music until 10 pm most nights! Bring the kids for a musical adventure!! And the staff is great!! More...
This place is incredible. The pizza is fabulous, the venue beautiful! The service was fantastic and I can't believe they didn't have a cover for the amazing music we enjoyed. I'd give this 6 stars if I could!!
Live jazz. Good pizza. You really can't ask for much more than that!
Fantastic live jazz
Lisa Shields Brock
Great jazz venue, with excellent pizza.
I love their pizza and the staff is great. My only complaint is that when I try to call in a to go order, they rarely ever answer the phone, and this isn't during busy hours at all (4-5pm weekdays).
Always a great show. One of my favorite places in town.
As a venue, The 1905 is solid. Great performers regularly and good space acoustically for the groups they host. As a bar, they have great drinks, and a fabulous bartending staff. I always enjoy a cocktail or two when I visit.As for pizza, this is one of my favorite spots in town. There are so so so many pizza places in this town, but I have my go-to spots. This is always solid and Aaron has the wizardry, science and art down of a good pie. Come check it out if you haven't yet. It's worth it. My personal favorite is the Oregon Truffle but honestly, I've liked every pizza I have had though, so IMHO you can't go wrong. Cheese Slices on HH between 4-7pm are $1. More...
Myndall N Bill Shivers
Great pizza, cocktails and music!
This place is home to low key some of the best pizza in the state! Also, the jazz is almost as hot as the bartenders! Cheers!
If I could leave 6 stars, I would. This place has a great vibe. A perfect spot for musicians to meet eachother, and have a good time. I love being on the stage, and attending shows as well. The food, the cocktails, and the atmosphere. I love it all. More...
Great (free) live jazz music and very good pizza. What more could you want? The pizza is one of my favorites in town.This place gets packed when certain bands are playing so come early if you want a seat. Don't expect stellar service when there is live music, the place is sometimes packed to the brim and staff can't keep up. It's not a big deal and the service isn't bad considering, just enjoy the music! More...
So many great artists come to perform here! Excellent atmosphere.
First exposure to jazz. Loved it.
Funky friendly neighborhood bar/grill with pizza, live music some nights.
Awesome jazz, great cocktails. Can get kinda crowded
We love coming here for a night of pizza and live jazz.
Great music, almost every night. Good pizza, friendly staff.
Awesome drinks, awesome pizza, great service and I love the live music! One of my favorite places in Portland by far!
Great Jazz and food
Best pizza in town
Great place to hear music. Attentive crowd and the owners seem to care about the quality of musicians.Good food great service.
My favorite place in Portland! If you love great jazz, this is where it happens! ...and the Pizza is TERRRRRIFIC!
The truffle pizza is killer, live band every night
This place has everything I like about Portland. Great food, drinks, and service. I'm not normally a jazz bar kind of guy but the music here is always great, they bring in some real talented bands. It's great to have both the indoor area close to the music and an outdoor part where you can chat or read. Electic crowd. Prices are totally reasonable. More...
great jazz music and food
Great music, great service, lots of fun
What a gem just off Mississippi. I noticed the sign from the corner of my eyes and it draw me to a welcoming patio surrounded by an old black iron fence that lead to a small lounge with stage and a small bar in the back. The layout is very open and from every side you have a direct view of the band.The bar staff is really friendly and knowledgeable and all seem to have an affinity for jazz music. One of the server on a couple occasion picked up the mic and wow. Just an amazing voice.Prices are super reasonable for such a place with an elegant classy feel. $3.00 PBR and $1.00 large slice of pizza for happy hour. Thats a deal. More...
The 1905 is just off of Mississippi Avenue on Shaver Street on the east side of Portland. It features live jazz music most nights of the week and often has outstanding performers such as Christopher Brown's Quartet, George Colligan, Alan Jones' group "Social Music" Noah Simpson, and Storm Nielsen. One of my favorite places to eat good pizza and listen to good jazz. More...
The people - awesome people everywhere and combine that with some fantastic music, live jazz, really good groups and singles - great combo! Hey, I visit on line so haven't checked out the food - but know there was some real Italian flair introduced recently! Check out others comments on food - I'd bet "great" on it! More...
This off the beaten path bar with a lovely patio and live jazz music is a must experience. While the inside is not for those that may experience claustrophobia; those who are willing to dive into a small music venue won't be disappointed in their overall experience. The food is fantastic with a true care to make sure all ingredients can be tasted. The drink choices are also very reasonable and taste fantastic. This is a highly recommended establishment. More...
Great music, better food.
I can't quit thinking about how amazing the food is here! We started with the caprese salad and mozzarella sticks. Super fresh. Could've stopped there but ordered a margherita pizza and I'm so happy we did. I'm always looking for pizza crust that tastes as good as the crust made in Venice and I think I finally found it here. In addition, the service was great and a good jazz band was playing while we ate. Can't wait to go back. More...
I have not eaten here but I know someone related.
Great live music, and atmosphere
Awesome Truffle Cheese Slices and great atmosphere with live jazz.
Jazz, pizza, beer, and cocktails. Lovely outdoor patio. This is not elevator, easy listening Jazz. This is the best of Portland's world class musicians converging on the tiny 1905 stage.

Sad that my first night there, was the last night of Open Mic! Nice joint. Decent food, super friendly staff .
Great outdoor area with seating. Get the Oregon Truffle Pizza! Live music makes for a great atmosphere.
Good pepperoni pizza
Remarkable and pleasant experience. My expectation met upon my return visit!

The music they bring in is top notch!
great spot. must be on your list
It was my last night in Portland. My bestfriend, her sister, and I stepped into this beautiful gem of a place where there was an Open Mic happening. We really enjoyed ourselves there. Had a few drinks, ate some really good garlic knots w/fresh marinara sauce, and I had to buy a slice of pepperoni pizza. I was not disappointed!!Open mic was so good too. We all love live music and all these artists were so deep in their feelings that it came out in their music and poetry. The only complaint I personally had was that I didnt know if I had to go to the bar and order because I did see a sign but it was tucked in the corner and I did see a few servers taking plates and serving pizza especially mine but nothing else. I also had to flag the chef down for a menu. Other that I enjoyed myself and I will be coming back for the food and drink and the live music. More...
Jazz baby, jazz! Top end players in a low key setting, fine pizzas and cocktails.
Best spot in Portland for Pizza, cocktails, and music! Some of the best music I have ever heard has occurred in that room! Support the Portland music scene and go hang at The 1905! More...
Awesome band "Just Friends" staff are very pleasant!
Great pizza, entertainment and drinks. It gets busy so get there early to grab a seat. The patio is awesome in the summer.
Great garlic nots.
Awesome music, great atmosphere and excellent service.
Kind of a secret of being one of the best pizza spots in Portland.
Great pizza and music
Delicious food, great bartender, and a great jazz band played! The outdoor seating is abundant and probably my favorite part next to the staff.
Good pizza, Great drinks, and some chill Jazz,
It's like an out of body experience

Great music and even better pizza!
Great food, staff and drinks. Nice spot to see a band.
Great open mic on Sundays
Great Jazz music
Excellent customer service and staff. Good eats and live entertainment make this place special and fun. Drinks at the bar or on the porch with the kids the 1905 is a regular place for me.
Delicious pizza! Friendly staff, good sized menu, nice atmosphere, I can't wait to come back!
Good dancing after 11ish
Love the pizza and atmosphere. All the musicians I've heard are excellent.
The pizza is delish! Staff is awesome! Music is the icing on the cake. Can’t wait for warmer weather and the patio opens up.
Sooo happy to find this place. Fabulous jazz with no cover. Best pizza around that you can also get by the slice, and I am a native NY'er with an attitude in that arena. Lovely patio that is dog friendly and one of the owners Holly couldn't be more warm and welcoming. Very comfortable casual environment. New favorite spot! More...
Went here for the first time last weekend and had a blast! Keep the slaps coming, definitely going back.
Cocktails and pizza were amazing and unique. Loved the vibe and atmosphere here.
Best pizza & best talent in our week stay at portland
Great place to enjoy great pizza and drinks while listening to live jazz!
Live music! Friendly bartender. Pizza by the slice. Best bar on Mississippi.
Good live jazz. Delicious drinks. Would recommend.
Really good, Italian-type/roughly Neapolitan-ish pizza. Some very pro jazz quartets, if you're into that sort if of thing (Mel Brown's kid, Chris Brown, plays there regularly). No complaints.
The live music was incredible!! Can't wait to go back!!
Seriously excellent experience. The Best pizza, terrific wait staff. If I lived closer I would eat here way too often.
Great hip hop nights on Fridays and Saturdays
Best pizza and best live jazz in Portland, bar none.
Excellent pizzas! Nice outdoor patio to enjoy a drink while listening to live music.
Great atmosphere! Jazz bands are awesome! And the pizza is amazing!
Great pizza and jazz
Amazing music and great pizza.
I went to The 1905 last night with a friend. Chris Brown and friends were playing. I loved this place. Good music, laid back atmosphere and good food. Already planning my next visit. I believe this is my new favorite hangout. Just wished I lived closer. More...
Adrian P Baxter
Great vibe, drinks, food and music the DJ a few Fridays ago killed it.
Great local music and drinks!
Good pizza, better staff!
I went in with my family and had this wonderful waitress and the pizza it's great. I believe her name was Lauren!
Great pizza, nice staff, cool live music.
Best Pizza in NE portland!
Great music cool atmosphere
We were there for a special event but the place has the best outdoor seating area and some really great bartenders and servers. We'll definitely be going back ..... More...
Sharon D Edwards
Excellent food and live musiic.
Standing room only for world class jazz and some of the finest pizza in Portland... I'm not kidding!
All I'm gonna say is, truffle pizza.
I'm not a jazz club regular, but I think I am now! The band playing was greaterkind and they were fantastic with great energy. The pizza, cocktails, and environment combined with the music made for a great night! More...
The Oregon Truffle Pizza is one of my most favorite pizzas. It is exceptional! I love this place. It’s a 2-3 time per month treat!
If you're looking for a quiet spot off the beaten path with quality live music and good food, this is the place. My wife and I stumbled across this retro pizza place on our honeymoon, and we couldn't have been happier. The pizza was fantastic, the restaurant wasn't crowded at all, and the live music was phenomenal. More...
Stellar pizza! Music most nights. Can be a bit loud for conversation. Came for pizza week, return multiple times for the top-notch food.
Good Music, good drinks, relaxed atmosphere! This place is chill and it's easy to connect with people or just bring a bunch of friends to hang out with...
Amazing live music, and fantastic pizza.
Whoa. Pizza, jazz, and excellent cocktails?!?! Yes. Sign everyone you know up. Everything about this place is great.
Music: Beyond words good.Food: GreatService: Good.
Love to hear Gigi and Elite !
Went during one of their live jazz nights. The band was amazing and of course you can't go wrong with pizza and beer. Will definitely be back.
Great place for local jazz (especially since the loss of Jimmy Mak’s) and pretty good pizza, beer & wine. A bit crowded at times, but it has a great vibe about it. In the spring & summer their outdoor space doubles the size of the crowd for listeners if the music. Highly recommended this place to anyone wanting to listen to live jazz! More...
Great Music, Atmosphere and Pizza. Drink lines are less appealing
Great pizza and live Jazz on Mondays!
Really good pizza! The center was a little soggy, but the flavor was top notch. Nice vegetarian options. The salad wasn't impressive though. For that price, butter lettuce, cherry tomatoes, a scattering of croutons, and some dressing isn't really cutting it. If it were bigger then okay, but the combo of size, price, and mundanity didn't work for me. But, again, really really tasty pizza~ More...
Having such a good time in this cozy little spot, chatting with the awesome bartenders, didn't even notice that they accidentally gave our pizza to someone else. When they realized their error, they insisted on comping it. Now THAT is how you gain a loyal customer! Doesn't hurt that the pizza was delicious, too, and the place had a really great vibe. More...
Great food and drinks topped by killer musicians . Support live music. Don't forget to tip!

Great place , excellent Pizza , live music every evening !!! Great place for a date. Highly recommend.
Really good pizza! Truffle one was amazing
Great live band
I really want to love this place. They support music and musicians which is awesome. The drinks are great. As far as food goes, I've only tried the pizza -- and only without cheese as I don't do dairy and normally don't bother with vegan cheeses. It's okay. I think it would probably be much better with cheese. I've seen some of the other food and it looks great. I'll definitely have to try more. The two times I've been in, it's been pretty loud and crowded, so the bar has been busy. The first time, I waited patiently, following all of the "rules" I've heard and read for not annoying the bartender. I waited and I waited for my turn to arrive. Finally, the people in front of me were served and it was my turn. A woman rushed up to the bar and barked her order. The bartender, who had seen me waiting, helped her. Younger and prettier? Sure, but I'll bet that I'm the better tipper. The second time I went, I was served much quicker, but paying was kind of a mess. I had ordered one large pizza and two manhattans (for which I had drink tickets as I was at an event). My bill was $49. I asked the bartender -- $49 for my pizza, really? He said, "You had two manhattans, too, right?" I said, "Yes, but I had drink tickets for those." He took brought me a new bill for $71. Again, I said, "$71 for a pizza?" He said, "Yes, they're a bit spendy." Finally, after explaining, ad nauseum, the situation, I got my $27 bill (for just the pizza). What the bar lacks in the area of clues, the kitchen makes up for. The kitchen staff is fantastic. Both times I've been there, I've received apologies for my pizza taking so long. Neither time did I notice it was taking too long (I was enjoying my drink and the music). The second time, the kitchen manager bought me a drink for my wait. The owner seems really great, too. I highly recommend this place, but urge some patience as they fine-tune some things. More...
It has a typical club atmosphere. And it's also a pizza place. The staff were all polite. The place can get super packed some weekends.
Live jazz almost every night, great cocktails, good food, lovely crowd
Excellent music and pizza.
Cute place good appetizer
Great music & good pizza.
What a great gem, show up early if you want to get a seat. The venue is on the samller side,but the jazz was awesome. The drinks were tasty and the place has a great ambience, we are very much looking forward to coming back for more music.
The night we went, they had some awesome jazz artists playing live music and it was wonderful. The pizza is good but we really enjoyed the appetizers, especially the truffle fries and the pesto Mac and cheese. Great beer selection, friendly service, and a great spot right off Mississippi. More...
My wife and i are in our 70s and came here for the Portland $5 Highball event. This was the second of four places we intended to hit so we didn't order any food except for the Garlic Basil fries---probably the best fries we have ever eaten---hot, fresh, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, garlicky and tossed with fried basil. The drink was delicious and the pizza LOOKED so fantastic we knew we had to come back. I NEED to find out what they use as a base for the garlic aioli! Actually I just want the recipe. :-) More...
Delicious pizza and drinks but if you don’t like jazz music then stay away during the dinner hour because they often have live jazz music.
