McMenamins Anderson School
We revitalized Bothell’s first junior high with pure fun in mind; for dining, moviegoing, overnight stays, live music, swimming, games, shopping, private events, meetings, tastings and all-around enjoyment for visitors of all ages.
No hall pass is needed to explore our multifaceted grounds. Have a handcrafted beverage in the hallway. Order drinks in the Principal’s Office, play pinball in The Woodshop, and forgo the lunch line for casual, sophisticated dining at The Tavern on the Square, surrounded by lush courtyard space in place of concrete. Escape the everyday at the North Shore Lagoon; swimming and South Seas rum drinks await. After all that, book your hotel room in the original schoolhouse and relax with a bottle of wine or breakfast in bed. We invite you to explore the reimagined space around you—all 5.41 acres!
Once part of the school's woodshop, the Anderson School Brewery is now where crafting of another sort happens: beer made on the 10-barrel brewing system! Anderson Brewers create McMenamins standards, all of our company seasonals, and rotating property selections like Bobcat Pale Ale and Back to School Helles Bock. Our brewers have the freedom to create unique recipes of their own, be it Porter or Pilsner, Witbier or Wheatwine.
Throughout it all, note the one-of-a-kind artwork, which local artists created based on historical photos and interviews from alumni, families and colorful residents.
To create new memories in our space, we host special all-ages events, such as assorted holiday gatherings and live music.
McMenamins Anderson School welcomes one and all to explore our reimagined school, in session daily.
