Week Ending August 9, 2020


Sanctuary will be open Wed (6 p.m.), Fri (5 p.m.) and Sat (5 p.m.) Portland is still in Phase 1: Everyone must wear a mask and a 10 p.m. curfew.



WEDNESDAY Game Bang! Your favorite Wednesday event is back – with masks on. Play games, hang out, stay safe. Sanctuary has been open for four weeks and our covid protocols have drawn praise. Everything must be wiped down and sanitized. Due to the current requirements, we are going to limit groups to certain games: Janky Jenga, group pictionary, truth or dare and the type. You may choose to play different board games with your group. Due to the intimate and vulnerable nature of interacting physically with humans one might not know very well, there are a few extra guidelines we will ask you to follow. Respect and courtesy required. $10, 21+



FRIDAY: It was May 2020. Oregon was flattening the curve and re-opening in some places. Many people were learning for the first time how sucky the Oregon unemployment office is. Nothing else happened. Literally nothing. Especially no birthday parties. Sanctuary hasn’t forgotten you. Those of you who had birthdays in May are invited to Sanctuary to celebrate a little late. Get your free birthday drink on us! $10, 21+














Saturday: Sanctuary’s comedy night returns. Only the jokes will be dirty. Advance tickets recommended and available via eventbrite. Masks and social distancing required, plan your group size accordingly and lets party. We will be selling a reduced number of seats to the show to accommodate spacing, so make sure to grab one before they’re gone. If you’re sick stay home, we will try to broadcast the show for you to see as well.










Sanctuary is 21+, LGBTQ+ and does not discriminate based on race, gender or sexual preference.

Portland is still under Oregon’s Phase 1 rules!

We’ve had several weeks to perfect our Covid protocol and we are pretty solid. As the science reporter Apoorva Mandavilli says: “There are ways to be responsible and socialize, but people don’t seem to be able to draw the line between what’s OK and what is not. For too many people, it seems to be binary — they are either on lockdown or taking no precautions.”
We will be taking responsible precautions.

***If you have Covid symptoms, are high risk, or have been in contact with an infected person in the last 14 days, please stay home***


MASK RULES: You must wear a mask in all common areas. You do not need to wear a mask in your group’s area or while eating or drinking. If you don’t want to wear a mask, stay home.

GROUPS: A group is defined as 2-10 people. These should be people you know and feel comfortable around. You will be seated together. Therefore, while you do not HAVE to come in group, we strongly recommend it. A group is defined as 2-10 people. You can reserve your own area and do what thou wilt! Reserve by writing info@pdxsanctuary.com or by PM at https://www.facebook.com/pdxsanctuary/

ROOMS: One group at a time may use a room.

FOOD: Phase 1 is set up for restaurants not nightclubs. Therefore we have a new Phase 1 Menu: chicken/steak/pork/veggie tacos, chicken/steak/pork/veggie quesadillas, Nachos, vegan wings, pizza, fries or tots, and chips with Jose’s salsa!
WHAT TO EXPECT: When entering, we will check your temperature. If your temp is high, we will ask you to wait and take another. If the temp is still high, we cannot let you in the facility as a precaution.
Everyone must wear a mask to enter. You must wear a mask when ordering, when waiting for the bathroom, when moving about the room. Basically, wear a mask anytime youre not eating or drinking with your group in your section. We ask that you remain seated for the most part in your section.
Upon entry, you will be met by one of our Covhosts. You will be asked to sign the Sanctuary waiver and then pay. If you have a reservation, you will be taken to your group’s area. If you are part of a group reservation, just mention the name of the person who reserved it and you will be taken to their area.
All sections are 6 feet apart. We ask that you observe this social distancing guideline. We will be there to remind you.
If you want to use the rooms, you will tell one of our Covhosts and you will be put on a list (obviously first cum, first served). When the rooms are clean, we will let you in.
DANCING? Unfortunately, Phase 1 prohibits dancing on the dance floor. We have made this impossible 🙂
ROAMING/CRUISING? This is a big no-no under Phase 1 rules.
DISTANCING? If furniture has a Square Sanctuary sign or giant butt plugs… don’t sit! It’s too close to another area. There are circles on the floor near the bar and bathroom indicating where to stand. We cannot have a line up at the bathroom, so we have a one person waiting area. If the waiting area is empty, the next person can step into the space.
SINGLES? Since everyone must remain with their own group, you might not be able to socialize normally. Just be prepared for that situation. We will still do our best to entertain you.

Sanctuary is 21+, LGBTQ+, ADA. We welcome all races and genders. Enter on Ninth.

NOTE, 5-10 are meal times.

We’ve got you covered.
