Rising like a phoenix from the ashes of a demolished Denny's, Trio Club is the only place in PDX where you can sing "Waterfalls" while actually looking at them, thanks to a super-swank, ultra-modern setup that includes flowing falls behind the glowing bar and three different high-tech karaoke stages.
The main room's divided between dining booths and perhaps Portland's biggest karaoke stage... or at least its most laser-y. In addition to a high-tech lighting system seemingly bought from Pink Floyd's garage sale, there's also a booming sound system large enough to guarantee the entire East side will hear your Bieberesque falsetto.
Sound-proofed by sliding glass doors (so you can watch your rivals), there's a secondary stage right by the main one, which also boasts a light-up dance floor. "Billy Jean" fatigue is basically unavoidable.
Lunch is panini & burger intensive, while the dinner menu features "country food" from various regions of the world, including this espresso/Chianti pot roast, Asian noodle dishes, linguine & meatballs, and dry-rubbed ribs.
During M-F happy hour (3-6p), you can score discounted drinks (including a daily specialty cocktail), plus $5 bites like crab puffs, charcuterie, and these hand-cut mozzarella sticks... after which it's recommended you wait 30mins before chasing or swimming in waterfalls.
