This year's BarFly Ball will take place in the venerable Rialto "complex" in the heart of downtown Portland, at 529 SW 4th Avenue.

The BarFly Ball will encompass all three of  The Rialto's bars, as follows:

In the main hall of The Rialto, proper, we'll have Eye Candy Video DJs projecting the best of the MTV golden era of 80s and 90s dance classics!

In the Jack London, the subterranean discotheque beneath the main hall, we'll have longtime Portland favorite, King Fader, mashing up creative dance tracks, new and old, for your rump-shaking pleasure!

In the speakeasy-esque Corner Bar, we'll have the inimitable Bettie Mayhem's Kaustic Karaoke, for all your crooning needs!

In the main hall of The Rialto, we'll also have a fabulous live photobooth with photographer/rockstar Dan Eccles and stylist-to-the-stars, Jeffrey Kyle, capturing your inner supermodel for posterity!

Complimentary champagne will be served at midnight in all three bars!

With your BarFly Ball wristband firmly in place, you'll be free to move throughout the three bars, and come and go as you please into the outside world, as well.

Doors for the BarFly Ball open at 8pm. DJs and karaoke start at 8pm, too!

Advance ticket purchase required - there will be no ticket sales at the door.

The BarFly Ball is proudly sponsored by Effen Vodka, Jim Beam, and Stella Artois.

We'll have drink specials all night - no jacked-up NYE pricing at the BarFly Ball! 

There's no dress code, either, so Teva-and-socks it up all you want (or dress to the nines, darlings!).
