Staying Safe in Portland Restaurants

Dear Patrons of The 1905:

In an effort to do our part to limit the spread of COVID-19, along with our colleagues at many other restaurants and performance venues, on Wednesday, August 11th, we will begin requiring proof of COVID vaccination (or proof of a negative COVID test within the last 48 hours) for indoor seating. This is for the protection of all of our guests, performers, and staff.

To be seated indoors, please bring your vaccination card (or a photo of the front and back) or negative test results, along with state- or school-issued ID. Seating on the patio does not require proof of COVID vaccination or negative test.

Regardless of vaccination/test status, we will require that you wear your mask, except when actively eating or drinking.

We genuinely thank you for doing your part to keep our staff, performers, and patrons as safe as possible while helping to ensure that we can continue to present world-class jazz music.

Partnering with the Kareem Kandi World Orchestra

At The 1905, we are grateful for the relationships we have made with Portland’s jazz community. Before the pandemic, we were thrilled to have provided the stage, cocktails, and pizza to support the musicians, their work, and their fans. We are excited to return to seven nights per week of some of the best music Portland has to offer. We have some big plans and are excited for our newest partnership: The Kareem Kandi World Orchestra.

Like The 1905, The Kareem Kandi World Orchestra shares our values in bolstering the Jazz community across the country:

The Kareem Kandi World Orchestra exists to create and sustain cultural exchanges by collaborating, educating, and performing through jazz and is a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to providing high quality performances and music education to communities around the globe. Through the use of concerts, workshops, composing, recording, and cultural exchanges, the Kareem Kandi World Orchestra brings people together through the broad scope of music and the jazz art form.

The alignment of their vision and ours has allowed for an excellent, mutually-beneficial opportunity to raise funds for:

• Live music
• Jazz education & outreach
• Venue enhancements (stage, lights, sound, etc.)

Moving forward

As we learn to live in the world of COVID19, The 1905 is committed to the health and safety of its staff and customers, while working to deliver against the promise of our Brand.

Delicious Food. Quality Booze. Live Jazz.

Over the past several months, we have seen tremendous innovation in our small business that has allowed us continue serving our delicious Italian food for you to enjoy from a distance. 

We have reopened our patio with very limited seating space, and expanded our menu, so you and a friend or two can join us (safely) in person, and enjoy a cocktail. 

We’ve streamed some incredible live Jazz performance on the internet, and are actively working to bring a safe, fun, and live experience to our patio. 

We’ve done all this to help bring to you the comforts our little jazz club has provided for you in the past. Stay tuned for more updates as we continue to explore new safe ways to deliver quality FOOD, BOOZE, and JAZZ.  

Stay Healthy. Stay Happy. Eat Pizza.
The 1905 team


Dear 1905 Community,

In the face of the novel Coronavirus and COVID-19 illness, The 1905 has opted to close its doors temporarily. We feel strongly that this is the most socially responsible step we can take. However, as you can imagine, this will cause extreme hardship for this small  business and its hard-working employees, as well as the musicians who perform here.

We kindly ask you to donate to our gofundme. Our top priority will be to keep our staff paid so that they may be safer and healthier while we weather this storm.

We will post updates when possible, as we hope to host a couple safe events for people in the very near future. Stick with us and be kind to one another.

The 1905

For The Love of Jazz Gofundme
