Two guys searching for a place to hang out, play games and socialize with friends while staying sober discovered that no such place existed in the Portland area. So they decided to do something about it. Through a mutual friend, they met business owner Stan Herman, who happened to have an empty warehouse on Mississippi Avenue near the MAX Yellow Line Albina Stop. After pitching the idea to Mr. Herman, the 4th Dimension Sober Club was born. “In recovery we talk about reaching a certain level of sobriety, ‘the great beyond’ the 4th Dimension. That is how we came up with the title of our organization” says co- founder Devon Andrade.
