Our staff love where they live, and we want to share all our insider tips, tricks, and hot spots that make our city so livable. It's Women's History Month, y'all! Women are such a vital part of the Jupiter story, from our owner to designers to staff, and beyond. We're happy to share some of our favorite women-owned shops to get you out there exploring all the great offerings that women have brought to our great city. Before you start your shopping spree, make sure you...
Portland's oldest topless bar (and now fully nude club) is a family-run business, now owned and managed by original owner Roy Keller's daughter Vicki, plus a few granddaughters and a daughter-in-law who help the place run seamlessly. This is the perfect type of Portland strip club - an epic bar selection, fine food options, a stunning array of beautiful ladies, and a location just a 10-minute walk away from the hotel. They recently had to move from their original spot, but they're just a few blocks away towards the Burnside Bridge (seriously, so close to the hotel!).
A little bit of a longer stroll away (okay, a bike or car would be way more efficient), you'll find COMMUNION, an independently-owned boutique on the corner of SE Hawthorne Blvd & 35th Place in Portland, Oregon. COMMUNION takes great pride in being part of this community and actively supports other local businesses, artisans, makers, and non-profits. As fellow community-lovers ourselves, that's a mission we can totally get behind.
Never sacrifice personal style for function when you can have both. Stonedware Co's pipes deliver a powerfully smooth smoking experience for the aesthetically inclined with design-centric smoke wares for on the go, at home, and on display. Handcrafted in Portland, Oregon, each pipe is designed ergonomically for ease of use and made from the finest materials. Stonedware Co. pipes are porcelain, finished with food-safe glaze and 22K Gold, without any fillers. They're so unique and so fun to show off. Check out owner Ariel Zimman's Instagram for lots of custom jobs, display inspiration, and occasionally some really epic sales!
The appropriately named Sports Bra is the Portland sports bar that's dedicated to women's sports. Their mission: To make great food, delicious drinks, and provide a space that supports, empowers, and promotes girls and women in sports and in the community. Plus, they have an awesome cocktail list, great food, and a chance to catch all your favorite women's sports teams on the big screens. And you gotta check out their merch... yes, they sell sports bras, too!
Established in 2012, Psychic Sister is a woman-owned and operated small business with two locations in Olympia, WA and Portland, OR. From Psychic Sister's website: "People come in for the lush shopping paradise, and stay for our incredibly good vibes. We’ve witnessed countless miracles, big and small, as we connect our customers to our crystal gardens, library of tarot and esoterica and over 50+ independent vendors and 20+ healing practitioners across our two locations. We believe magic is intersectional and we prioritize inclusivity and diverse representation."
Established in 2009, Seagrape offers self-care for inside and out: think premium body oils, skincare and makeup products next to shadow work books and tarot cards. Stop in for a gift for your witchiest loved one, or join them for workshops that always manage to help you find the magic in the mundane. In the words of its founder, Maria, "If you’re new to tending your flame, or if you’re simply here to re-ignite it, you are in the right place- I can’t wait to watch you grow."
After you've check out these spots and shopped til you drop, then hang out on site at Hey Love or Doug Fir Lounge, where you can unwind in the center of it all! Spring at Jupiter Hotel is unparalleled. All we need is YOU.
