The krō bär is an eclectic bar with a speakeasy vibe and a passion for spirits and great food with a nod to another era.

Tucked away on Main Street in Bothell, a walkable neighborhood teaming with local art, culture and food, the artfully handcrafted krō bär has been reclaimed from the bones of Bothell’s historic hardware store in the Mohn building. The 16-foot-high tin ceilings, a hanging catwalk and the original wood floors were uncovered and restored.

Please note we are 21 and older only.

    Another pleasant evening at Kro; Keira did well to help us feel welcome and well taken care of. The cocktails were delicious! I loved the cloves in my Revenge! Our previous visit we sampled small plates but this time had to try their Mains and these did not disappoint. Spouse had the short ribs and I had the curry prawns: both quite nice. Did not try dessert - as we had some pumpkin pie leftovers at home from Thanksgiving. Already looking forward to a return visit.

    The bartenders were so attentive and friendly. I went by myself but I never felt alone. Learned a lot while they were making drinks and explaining ingredients. Let me try samples from things I didn’t order. Food was good, but this is def a spot to go to for fun cocktails. Buttered popcorn washed bourbon and peanut butter washed Irish whiskey. Can’t beat it!

    Kro BarResponded on November 21, 2022Hi Amy, Glad you enjoyed your time at the bar. Our mixologists definitely provide a unique experience and have a wealth of knowledge to share with guests. They go above and beyond to create the best craft cocktails offered while offering something more than just a drink. Greatly appreciative of your review and thank for taking time out of your day to post a review. Cam and Sinag will be very happy. Come again soon!

    The food was amazing. Our server was very knowledgeable and answered my many questions about the food and drinks we saw coming out of the kitchen. We ordered the white cheddar gougeres which were fantastic. Followed by a charcuterie board, parsnip soup (I’m not a fan of parsnips but this soup was soooo good!). My husband and I split the curry prawns so we could order the chocolate crèmeaux for dessert. Good call as that was probably the best dessert I’ve had in a very long time. Will definitely be heading back to try more of the menu!

    Kro BarResponded on November 21, 2022Hi Foodsnob, Great review! You captured the essence of what Kro Bar strives to provide. I too was skeptical about the parsnip soup.......but Chef Dan has proven that he can make me like anything......it is really the perfect thing on a cold fall evening to enjoy with a tasty craft cocktail. So glad you enjoyed and thanks so much for taking time to post a review. The Kitchen staff will be very proud to see that you loved what you had and hopes to see you back to try more soon! The pork chop!!

    The Kro Bar is a very special dining experience; from the history of the building, to the cuisine, to the cocktails. They change up their menu seasonally and, although limited, it seems to always have something for everyone. The cocktail menu is great but even if you don't see a cocktail that appeals to you, the bartender is more than happy to make you a creation of your own design. My friend asked for a not too sweet cocktail that included St. Germain liqueur and he delivered the perfect concoction. All three of us ended up ordering it. I love the ambiance of this little gem and I've never been disappointed. The servers are also friendly, helpful and informed about the cuisine, making great suggestions. They have it all dialed in. Can't wait to go there again!

    I wish I knew this place existed in Bothell sooner! I’ve lived here for 8 years and just discovered it. Took my girlfriend for her birthday. Absolutely outstanding flavor in both the drinks and the food. I mean you will be hard pressed to find more creative flavor combinations anywhere around Puget Sound! Drinks were very unique and well crafted. Small plates were an adventure in culinary craft. Hands down my favorite restaurant in western Washington. Almost don’t want to tell anybody for fear of not getting reservations in the future. But these guys deserve the recognition. Also, best service I’ve experienced in years at a restaurant. Just the right amount of attention.

    Kro BarResponded on October 23, 2022Hi Lincoln, We are so happy you found us! Also, very glad that we were able to provide a memorable experience for your birthday celebration.

Hope to see you back soon!

    Absolutely amazing! The food is to die for! So many wonderful and exciting dishes to try (I am pretty sure we tried them all) it’s a taste explosion in your mouth. The menu changes based on what is fresh for that time of the year and we can’t wait to come back for all the fall favorites. Reservations are required starting at 4:00pm. Cocktails are not your everyday drinks unless you prefer that, they are exotic and and refreshing. This place is definitely on my list of top 10 places I will continue to visit again and again.
