When McMenamins takes over a property, they try to find purposes for unique spaces. One such area is the Back Stage Bar at the Bagdad Theater in Portland's Hawthorne district. The bar is tucked behind the theater screen in a room with seven-story ceilings. This allowed room for a 20 foot by 20 foot custom mural created by McMenamins artists Joe Cotter, Kolieha Bush, Olivia Behm, Myrna Yoder, Jenny Joyce and Lyle Hehn, The mural depicts the history of the theater from it's 1927 grand opening to its latest incarnation as a McMenamins destination, all in the Bagdad's original exotic motif.
