Great music and super good pizza and drink in an intimate space where we can share our love of jazz with the rest of the attentive audience and feel personally connected to the band! Owners’ concern for a fine customer experience is also reflected in the staff’s friendly and efficient service. 😍

Love the music and hand made pizza. This is a fun place to go with friends that love jazz and casual atmosphere. The staff is friendly and helpful if you don't know what to order. You can also watch them make the pizza and fling the dough....

We were there before it got busy so we had no trouble finding a seat (or parking). Our bartender/server was attentive and helpful. The GF pizza crust is REALLY good! I would love to go back!

Our second time coming to 1905, and it was a really nice evening. Pizza was excellent — way better than we remembered from the previous visit. Caesar salad, though very non-traditional, was also very good. Service was reasonable, considering the fact that the place was busy and probably a bit understaffed. But our real reason for going in the first place was the music, which was outstanding. The Tony Pacini Trio provided just style of jazz we went there hoping to hear; they were the best part of a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

This is a great place to see live jazz. The musicians are top notch. I don't love that I pay a cover and then buy a nice meal but I assume the cover goes to the musicians, so I roll with it. Definitely get a reservation. This pizza is good. The drinks are good. So, go!

Ryan was a very attentive server. The Jazz from Jack Radsliff’s band was very smooth and pleasant. The kitchen put candles on the pizza for our friend! Thank you Aaron for saving local Jazz for all of us to enjoy along with great drink and food!

I had heard a lot of good reviews from friends and was looking forward to checking it out finally! I was sure the music would be good and pizza is always good to me, but everything way exceeded my expectations! My friend got the mushroom and truffle pasta and insisted everyone at the table try it--it was sooo tasty and rich and lovely, and it was especially sensual trying that while the band was playing a ballad. The pizza, too, was deliciously seasoned and the drinks were tasty too! I was glad the sparkling lemonade was more tart than sweet, and my friends who got cocktails said they were really tasty for how strong they were! The server was also very helpful with suggesting drinks suited for their tastes. Michalangela was playing the night we went, and we were really digging her and her band's sound! She had some real tasty vocals and harmonies from modular synth, and we were OBSESSED with the pianist, who was brilliant! They were super kind and chatted with us during intermission.

Love that 1905 has stepped up as Portland’s premier Jazz club. You can pretty much count on hearing good to great playing 7 nights a week. The pizza is incredible. The Mac and Cheese too.

Only complaints- gets way too crowded and some people rudely stand in front of those with seats. The metal stools at the rear tables are very uncomfortable The cocktail list could use help.

Other than that, we’re lucky to have them. The folks working there are as good as it gets.

We live nearby so frequent this gem of a destination for the live jazz and excellent pizza (yeah, we're New Yorkers, so are 'particular' about pizza). It's always a great evening the 1905 - but even more so for New Year's Eve, when Charlie Porter and his quintet lit the place up. Amazing talent. The owner and his team do a great job. You should check it out.

The contact to make a reservation was via email but there was no answer for two days on the listed phone number. Nonetheless we received a timely phone call with a table inside and not outside. The venue was warm and wonderful and the staff was stellar!

Love the 1905! Great little jazz club in the Mississippi neighborhood. The pizza was one of the best I've had in Portland. The ambience was perfect - cozy little jazz club with good acoustics and an audience that was there to listen. Very affordable - we'll certainly be coming back!

Experiencing this place inside and out, I'm convinced the 1905 makes the list for "must go to places in Portland, OR" really experience the magic this place has to offer.
