You will find that the ambience is quite a wonderful change. It isn't quite a small town dive bar tavern, but it does have a nice home-style feeling to it. Decoration is ecclectic (note the skis and old wooden sleds attached to the ceiling above the bar, and the old traffic signal) but has the feeling of being tied to Wenatchee history.
It isn't a pub located in Wenatchee attempting to be an out of place European style pub, but is instead the spirit of an old world public house, done in a fashion that agrees with what an odl world public house should be if it is part of Wenatchee culture.
The results seem to be quite good: among the awards won by the establishment include Weantchee World's Best Place to Take a Date in 2007, and the Best Public House / Nightclub for 2004 for Go! Magazine / Wenatchee World.
Granted, the world of Wenatchee isn't that big, but at least it says something of the establishment compared to its competition.
The structure is one of the preserved historic buildings in Wenatchee. The effort inside makes the building look as though it were built new from scratch to imitate an older building. However, look closely at the outside photos: you will notice ancient worn advertising paint on the outside of the building - from a past never experienced by the structures surrounding it.
Favorite Dish: Both the Nachos Plate ($8.75) and the Black & Blue ($9.75) are quite good.
if you go downtown wenatchee, to the shopping areas, you will find some small restaurants, run by mexican families. Here you can get a good mexican meal. I can´t remember the name of one of these small resataurants. Just go downtown for a walk and check, what you prefer.
