The Rec Room in Yakima is Closed
It's with a heavy heart that I let you know The Rec Room Bar & Grill is closed. This announcement was made on their Facebook page. Owner, Anthony Davis, said their closing was due to overwhelming constrictions from Glennwood Square management.
As anyone who has ever been to my bar knows, our focal point is live entertainment. The poor decision made by Glennwood Square management to rent out the suite below The Rec Room to a restaurant has severely hindered my business. Secondly the poor decision of the restaurant to not research their location before opening business under a live music venue that has been in business almost two years. I have received orders to only play music at a certain volume level only after a certain time and only till a certain time. This has restricted me from being able to conduct my business or grow my business. I was planning to have regular Saturday afternoon all age’s shows for the underage music fans and bands in our area, that’s not possible anymore.
This sucks for me because, not only am I friend with Tony and his brothers, but this place had some of the best food in Yakima. I'll never again find wings the size of what I could find here. Here's to hoping they want to maybe find somewhere else in town to open shop and feature great food and awesome, live entertainment from comedy to local music. You'll be missed.
