Mcglinn's Public House

COMMENTS: Exposed rafters, the kitchen in full view, a long bar and tables filled with folks carrying on with laughter and the clink of glasses, the ping of forks on plates, a serious conversation over in the corner. The smell of food is intoxicating. Grab a table early, it's crowded every night.

KEY FEATURES: The Garland Building, constructed in 1922 by Charlie Garland,  was originally home to the Orondo Recreation Clubhousing a variety of entertainment options including a billiard hall, card room, lunch counter and cigar shop. Rock Island Dam project workers frequented the club and some residing in the upstairs apartments.

In the mid-thirties, Garland brought a semi-pro baseball team to Wenatchee. A farm club of the New York Yankees, the team became the Wenatchee Chiefs. Players occupied several of the upstairs apartments and worked at the Club for extra income. Major League players were also attracted by the opportunity for employment and could be found working there during the off season. 

Throughout the forties and fifties the Club continued a long run as a successful and vibrant social spot. During the sixties thru the eighties business declined and the Garland fell into disrepair. With the opening of McGlinn’s in 1991, the charm and character of the Garland is once again home to one of Wenatchee’s favorite gathering spots.
