In 1995 renowned architect Brad Cloepfil (Allied Works Architecture) designed the restaurant for founders, Bruce Carey (Zefiro, Bluehour, Clarklewis, and 23Hoyt Restaurants) and Christopher Israel (Zefiro, Gruner), pioneering Portland’s Deejay-Cafe movement, with equal emphasis on food, service and vibe. Since 2000 co-owner Joe Rogers has been the lead operator.

For over fourteen years Saucebox continues to stimulate all senses with bright flavorful food, delicious cocktails, two glamorous dining rooms, groovy sounds from the deejay, and an energizing mix of customers and staff.
