That horse on top of the Ranch Club has been on a wild ride the past few years.
The landmark bar, opened in 1950 at 3544 W. Chinden Blvd. in Garden City, closed in 2017. Then it reopened months later, proudly remodeled under new ownership. Then the Ranch Club got sold and temporarily closed again in early 2019.
New owner Tyler Reynolds recently reopened the bar and grill with a spiffy front patio (and comfier indoor seating) — just in time for spring.
And the property is for sale.
Got an extra $858,000? It’s yours. The 4,680-square-foot building is listed by Intermountain Commercial Real Estate. It’s had the same owners for many years, even though the Ranch Club business has changed hands.
Here’s what you get: “100 percent occupied with new five-year lease. Offering includes 3544 W. Chinden (building and parking) and two parking lots located on E. 36th Street immediately behind the building. There is also a liquor license which the current tenant is leasing that can be obtained for an additional $175,000.”
The building has a lot of history. It was moved in pieces from New Plymouth in 1949. It had slot machines when it opened in 1950; gambling was still legal in Idaho.
In 1980, it was used for a scene in the Clint Eastwood movie “Bronco Billy.”
