The People's Courts are making The City of Roses fun again, and everyone is welcome. The 48,000-square-foot social venue has indoor and outdoor Pickleball courts, Bocce Ball, Ping Pong, Cornhole, a 9-hole Disc Golf putting course, an arcade, and two excellent restaurants.
Inside, The People's Courts will have five full-size Pickleball courts, two "skinny singles" courts, a "dinkum" court, five Bocce Ball courts, six to ten Ping Pong tables, and six to ten Cornhole courts, as well as an arcade with old and new games, a unique nine-hole putt-putt style Disc Golf course, and a well-stocked pro-shop. Outside, there will be six different Pickleball courts and a covered area where people can eat, drink, and talk to each other.
The People's Courts will have things to do for fun and two restaurants called "The Kitchen" and "The Parlor." The Kitchen will have a great list of local beer, wine, and cocktails and a bar and grill menu designed by Nate Tilden of Clyde Common and Olympia Provisions. Brian Spangler of Apizza Scholls will make tavern-style pizza for the Parlor and soft-serve ice cream and shakes.
The People's Court owner Dave Sacks said, "We're excited to bring a new kind of entertainment to Portland." "The People's Courts will be where people can play and have fun all year. We want to give everyone something fun to do, and we think we've done that.
Dave Schrott, Dave Sacks, and Robert Sacks have a long history of investing in Portland's restaurant and tourism industries. They built the downtown Ace Hotel, which they sold last year, and they own the buildings that house Coopers Hall Winery and Taproom, Spirit of 77, Oven and Shaker, and other well-known venues. As a result, the People's Courts are making a special place for fun, social, and high-quality recreation.
The People's Courts will be open on weekdays from 9 to 10 p.m. and on weekends from 8 to 12 a.m. Different activities and times of play will have additional fees. You can rent individual courts by the hour, and there are rental packages for larger groups and leagues. There will be open space during certain times.
