About The DeSoto Rooftop Terrace
The ideal location for your upcoming event
Perched above the historic DeSoto Building, and overlooking the lush Park Blocks in the bustling Pearl District, the Terrace is the ideal rooftop location for any summer celebration. With a true Portland ambiance, this unique venue will leave a lasting impression for your upcoming Wedding, Reception, Cocktail Party, Elegant Dinner Gathering, or Summer BBQ.
The iron trellising combined with a rust brick wall, contemporary while intimate lighting, designer Italian chairs, market umbrellas, and dramatic potted plants all create the classic urban chic atmosphere for which Portland has become famous. Just below the terrace, the DeSoto Building is home to a number of influential art galleries and museum spaces also available for rent.
