McMenamins is a prominent name in the city of Portland, Oregon. What started as a local neighborhood pub in the early 1980's has grown into 56 properties (and growing!), in both Oregon and Washington, that range from simple bars and breweries to large hospitality resorts taking old historic landmarks and buildings and bringing them back to life as restaurants, hotels, wineries, concert venues, and would you believe it, gardens!
I am currently the Gardens Manager for their largest property in Washington State in the city of Bothell called the Anderson School. It was a former junior and alternative high school, but now transformed into a hotel, restaurants, multiple bars, a movie theater, a brewery, a community pool and extensive gardens I helped design and install.
