Doug-Fir-2

Goals

Portland’s Doug Fir Lounge, open 365 days a year, debuted in 2004 as a full-service music venue, restaurant, and bar, with an attached sister hotel, The Jupiter. After nearly a decade in business, Doug Fir sought to reestablish itself as a destination not just for music fans, but for tourists and locals looking for a great meal. To achieve this, Doug Fir needed a technology partner that understood their vision and could help them overcome their marketing hurdles while saving time and money.

Results

Increasing revenue and ticket sales
In just three years with Ticketfly, Doug Fir is now booking great talent nearly every night and putting Ticketfly’s full suite of integrated ticketing and marketing tools to use. As a result, the venue is selling more tickets and driving revenue back into the restaurant and bar.

Seamless & effective branding
Doug Fir wanted a website and purchase experience that conveyed its identity and complemented the venue and restaurant. Ticketfly collaborated with Doug Fir on dougfirlounge.com, custom Ticketfly purchase flow, and email templates so all online properties have the same look and feel.
