The Lovecraft: Every Day Is Like Sunday

“I’ll buy a free drink for anyone who sings an Erasure song!” yells the bartender, her face hidden behind dry ice and a series of red and green laser lights straight out of a televised Muse Christmas special. Welcome to Sunday-night karaoke at The Lovecraft (421 SE Grand Ave., 971-270-7760, thelovecraftbar.com), Portland’s new “horror-themed tea shop and bar” and definitely the only place I’ve ever been where Goth kids and aging Trekkies meet to serenade their loved ones over Kate Bush and New Order hits. With black lights on the ceiling and artificial cobwebs dotting nearly every corner, the Lovecraft—named after H.P., if the quotes in the men’s room mean anything—feels like you’re drinking in a haunted house, or at least at a dance party where everyone is a member of the Bruce Campbell fan club. Here’s your new home.
