Revolution Hall is a music venue in the Buckman neighborhood of Portland, Oregon.[1][2] It is located within the former Washington High School, and was originally constructed as the school's auditorium.[3][4] The auditorium was in use from the school's opening in 1924 to its closure in 1981, and became unused until February 2015. As part of a larger redevelopment that saw the school converted into office and retail space, the auditorium was renovated into a music venue. During construction, two bars and a roof deck were added, but the original wooden seats were preserved.[3]

The venue officially opened on April 17, 2015, with a concert by Neko Case.[5]
