4 Unique Experiences You Can Only Try in Bothell

When planning any vacation, it’s typical to note hotels you’d want to stay in, restaurants you want to try, and activities that are unique to your destination — and a trip to Bothell is no different!

Read on to discover five can’t-miss spots in Bothell that set our city apart.

Zulu’s Board Game Cafe

Zulu’s Board Game Cafe combines two of our favorite pastimes — playing board games and eating delectable dishes with friends. Located on Main Street, the restaurant regularly hosts game events and meetups, and has an astonishing number of board games for you to rent and play at the cafe.

Aside from the community, the best part of it all is the food. Chef Tony Jutt constantly whips up new recipes that are inspired by your favorite games, fantasy, and science fiction franchises. Play a round or two of a new board game and order the Rumblecusp Ahi Nachos — if you lose the game, you’re still a winner!


Schedule a one-hour shopping appointment at CoCapsules and you could bring home a beautiful sweater, trusty new jeans, or a new staple blouse as a memento of your trip to Bothell! During the appointment, you’ll be matched with a stylist and they’ll review your needs, walk you through CoCapsules’ current collection, and make personalized recommendations that fit you and your lifestyle.

The Bothell boutique specializes in capsule wardrobes, but if that’s not your vibe, you can always level up your style with their individual pieces.

Wildwood Spirits Co.

Stop by Wildwood Spirits Co., a Bothell distillery, and get an insider’s look at how their expert distillers make their award-winning spirits. The distillery is proud to source nearly all of its ingredients from local farms in Washington, making it a true gem of the Pacific Northwest.

When you’re in the store, you can chat with their experts about their Dark Door Bourbon, Kur Gin, and more. And even better, enjoy a free tasting with an in-store purchase!

Kro Bar

Self-described as an “eclectic bar with a speakeasy vibe and a passion for spirits that nods to another era,” Kro Bar is an intimate Bothell spot that specializes in craft cocktails, wine, and an impressive menu of more than 25 gins.

Make a reservation during your next trip to Bothell — Kro Bar’s mixologists will work with you to create a cocktail that fits your mood, and their small plates menu is one you can’t miss out on.
