Owner's Statement

The Mississippi Pizza Pub and its Atlantis Lounge pack an exciting mix of events for adults, children and the entire family into every day, all at different times of the day. Pioneers of gluten-free pizza, you’ll also find a delicious variety for meat lovers and vegetarians to add to our thin-crust pies, while the Atlantis serves fresh-squeezed fruit cocktails and has craft beers on tap. Most nights have dinner time, family-friendly music events followed by 21-and-over shows featuring everything from local indie rock to world music.

    From Eight Venues, Seven Days, One City: Portland's Venue Bucket List:

    Whether you’re seeking a slice or a full pie, let it be known that Mississippi Pizza is not a parlor. There is the typical dining area with the glass case displaying cheesy concoctions that you’d find in any pizza place, but then there’s a door that leads into a separate, spacious music venue with a back-corner bar, the Atlantis Lounge. The calendar’s always full of local talent, and early shows are donation only while later 21-and-over concerts—featuring everything from three-band bills of indie rockers to hip-hop to plenty of bluegrass, blues, swing, jazz and singer-songwriters—often have a cover of no more than $5-10. Plus, international flavors are represented by Balkan and Middle Eastern music as well as two nights a month of salsa dancing with a live band.

    Check these off your list:

    ▶ Most nights see multiple acts (or events like Bingo and Bourbon with Brian Perez on Mondays, Baby Ketten Karaoke every Tuesday, trivia, or DJ nights) take the venue’s intimate stage and evenings often start with family-friendly performances by the likes of kids' music mainstays Red Yarn (Thursdays), Mr. Ben (Tuesdays) and others.

    ▶ Parents or those coming for later shows can order fresh-squeezed juice cocktails (like the ever-popular margarita) or glasses of wine and pints of beer from one of the eight rotating taps.

    ▶ Showed up hungry or worked up an appetite? The pizza is worth your time, and it comes sauced with reds, whites or pestos and topped with countless options that are meat- and veggie-filled as well as vegan and gluten-free
