If you want to feel super fancy, take in a show at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall. The performing arts center is home to the Oregon Symphony, Metropolitan Youth Symphony, and Portland Youth Philharmonic, but also hosts non-classical events—icons like Louie Armstrong, Madonna, and Prince have played there, and more recently artists like Solange have graced its stage. It was built in the late 1920s, and hasn’t aged much. The inside is ornate and massive, with an orchestra level and multiple balconies overhead. Its exterior is immediately recognizable by the beloved “Portland” sign. Tickets are pricier, since the seated venue primarily hosts internationally-acclaimed touring acts, but even up in the nosebleeds with a sippy cup of too-expensive wine, any visit to the Schnitz is worthwhile.
