Lovecraft is a fun place. I went there with some friends. It is considered a “goth” bar but I would say it is much more “new wave”. It is like walking into a Talking Head’s nightmare. You will hear a lot of good music from bands like Joy Division. There is a lot of dancing, it is really dark with a lot of lights. They have live bands here some times. It was a great place to check out and definitely one of the coolest bars I visited during my stay in Portland.
