What's a shucking room?
According to BarFly Magazine, there's a lounge downtown Portland with an open well in the middle of the place. Maybe it was a temporarily left open during a remodel. It's called Dan and Louis' Shucking Room. Can any locals out there confirm or deny this? Here's the rundown from BarFly:
Pocket-size lounge in circa 1907 oyster house is chock full of unique Portland memorabilia.

Beware and bring your own moisturizer.
