The Dude Ranch was a jazz venue in Portland, Oregon that operated during World War II in the 1940s. It joined other jazz clubs along and nearby North Williams Avenue, a Black neighborhood. The venue was the self-proclaimed, "Pleasure Spot of the West." The Dude Ranch was regularly covered by The Observer in a recurring section known as "Rhythm Round-Up". The Observer also regularly ran advertisements for the venue. The Dude Ranch closed a few months later after a shooting at its 240 North Broadway location. It reopened nearby but it did not have the same level of popularity.
