The Ultimate Bothell Bar Crawl Guide

One of the best ways to get out and truly experience a new city is on two feet. Add some fresh air and your favorite draft beer to the mix, and you’ve got yourself an adventure. 

There’s no need to search for “breweries near me” when you arrive in Bothell — we’ve got you covered. From The Bine Beer and Food to The WoodShop at McMenamins Anderson School, we’ve concocted the perfect bar crawl route for you to truly explore Bothell, WA. 

Did we mention it’s completely walkable? Crawl on!

Stop #1 | The Bine Beer and Food

What better way to start a Bothell bar crawl than right on Main Street? If you’ve never been to Washington, The Bine Beer and Food is a great place to discover your new favorite local brew from their rotating draft list. 

Stop inside for a small bite and a beer, or enjoy their heated outdoor patio for a few. 

Stop #2 | The Bison on Main

Just a few steps down the street from stop #1 is The Bison on Main — you don’t even have to cross the road. 

Not many things are better than a crisp draft beer in hand, but a burger in the other certainly tops it. From the Cowboy burger to the Buffalo Bill burger, this is the place to fuel up before venturing to your next bar crawl spot.

Stop #3 | The Hop & Hound

When you reach the intersection of Main Street and 101st Ave NE, make a left to be greeted by Bothell’s original community craft beer taproom, The Hop & Hound

This locally owned and operated taproom, bottle shop, and beer garden features a rotating selection of vendors during Food Truck Fridays and is dog-friendly, so you can bring your fur bestie too!

Stop #4 | Stack 571 Burger and Whiskey Lounge

Now that you’re halfway through your Bothell bar crawl, it’s time to lace up those walking shoes and head over to Stack 571

This can’t-miss spot is a six-minute walk from The Hop & Hound. You can trust us when we say you’ll want to take a look around this adventurous menu. May we suggest the Lucky Charms S’mores Shake with a shot of Brandy? 

Stop #5 | Poquitos

On the corner of Bothell Way NE and NE 185th Street, you’ll find Poquitos, a Mexican restaurant that’s all about serving food and drinks with quality ingredients and honoring Mexico’s culinary traditions. 

Visiting Bothell during the week? Stop in for Mezcal Mondays or Tequila Tuesdays. Their robust margarita menu also deserves a glance, if we do say so ourselves.

Stop #6 | The Woodshop at McMenamins Anderson School

Last but surely not least, The Woodshop at McMenamins Anderson School is the ultimate ending to your Bothell bar crawl. 

With a pub-like atmosphere complete with brews and games galore, The Woodshop is the perfect place to relax with friends while watching your favorite teams on the big screens. 

Pro tip: Book your stay at McMenamins Anderson School, so you don’t have to crawl much further to make it to your home away from home!
