North Bank Pub - McMenamins
A wonderful spot in Eugene, overlooking a serene stretch of the Willamette River near Alton Baker Park. Tiered inside seating and an outside deck provide a beautiful, panoramic view.
In 1979, The North Bank Pub became one of the first buildings constructed along this stretch of the Willamette. John Costello opened the restaurant in April of that year with riverside dining and live jazz by Eugene legend Emitt Williams and others. After a successful 21-year run, Costello handed over the torch to McMenamins, who reopened the North Bank on May 10, 2000.
