Bio: Our story begins in 1907 with the building of The Calumet Hotel. Portland was the largest city in the Northwest and the Rose Festival was launched to celebrate Portland's prosperity. The hotel was renamed The Willard Hotel during the Thirties. A private club was formed on the first floor for the flying men of World War I, this club was the famous Aero Club. When the Aero Club relocated in 1939, the Actor's Club moved in and was eventually replaced in the late Forties by the Western Club of Oregon The hotel was renamed the Esquire Hotel in the early Sixties and it was during that time that The Headless Horseman was one of Portland's most successful night clubs, boasting the sounds of the Kingsmen and Paul Revere & the Raiders. In 1978, The Brasserie Montmartre began its life as a dinner house inspired by Parisian cafe society and was open until 2006 when the Brasserie closed its doors for major structural and seismic upgrades. Today, under new ownership, the Brasserie Montmartre has been renovated back to its original grandeur and exhibits its architectural prestige on the National Registrar of Historic Places. The new construction also achieved a LEED® Gold certification for the building. The antique chandeliers have been again hung over the stage, over one hundred year old fir columns have been sanded and stained back to their natural pristine state, and artwork from the past century decorates its walls.
