If you aren’t familiar with shanghaiing, it refers to the capture and illegal sale of men to sea captains in need of crewmen. Unscrupulous middlemen kidnapped men and sold them off. It was a practice that occurred in Portland as well as other locations along the West Coast. According to some historical data, men were shanghaied in Portland from roughly 1850 to 1941. The Shanghai Tunnels or Portland Underground consist of tunnel passages linking Portland’s Old Town (Chinatown) to the central downtown area of Portland.
The Shanghai Tunnel Bar is the perfect spot to experience the Portland underground feeling with a drink in your hand. Please register for this event by clicking the Accept Invitation button. Feel free to bring your international friends and co-workers!
