Dining Bar
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.

    Great little (very little) spot. Friendly service, interesting food and a wide and creative drink menu. Restaurant is very small and cramped, even with roll up door open on a lovely evening. Would be claustrophobic in cold weather with the door down.

    This place is amazing! The drinks were top notch and so was the service at the bar. The smokey sausage gnocchi was to die for if you love really pronounced smoke flavor. I would be happy eating that dish every day for the rest of life honestly. So good!

    Kro BarResponded on September 18, 2022Hi Laryssa, Thanks so much! We are delighted that you had such a great time and enjoyed Chef Dan's food along with Sinag's libations. Cannot wait to have you back and get some feedback on our Fall Menu (coming out September 28th). Exciting additions to both the food and cocktail menu are spectacular. See you soon and thanks for taking the time to post a review. The entire team appreciates it.

    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.

    Kro BarResponded on September 18, 2022Hi Leslie, Wow, we cannot thank you enough for such a kind review and look forward to having you back to enjoy our new Fall menu coming out September 28th.

    We had heard good things about this place and finally decided to give it a try. We made reservations for the next night and looked forward to our dinner that night knowing that they had a small offering, which is cool. We arrive a little early and were gladly showed our table and introduced to our waitress. She was friendly and helpful and enjoyable. We ordered a couple of cocktails which were done quickly and were everything you would expect for your drink. I ordered the Steak which I was told was tender, not like a tenderloin, but tender. My lady had the scallops and risotto. Both dishes were very tasty and attractively presented. The only issue I can remark about is that they were some of the smallest portions I have ever seen, more like an Hors d'oeuvre than an actual meal. And at $30+ ?? I'm far from frugal and definitely not a cheapskate, but I won't be back knowing I can get a lot more for my meal almost anywhere else I've been. Nice place, friendly staff, great ambiance, and food is delicious, just don't expect to get much.

    Kro BarResponded on September 8, 2022Hi Richard, Thank you for the kind words. Very happy to hear that the cocktails, food and service were excellent. You are correct, we do offer small plates and strive to provide the highest quality ingredients. Unfortunately, that sometimes comes at a price. We do our best to keep costs down as we all feel the effects of inflation. We have chosen not to include automatic service charges like other establishments. The fall menu will have more options to choose from. Hope to have you back soon.

    Great small plates and cocktails. The red wine was a little warm, probably because it was a hot day and they are open air, not AC.

    Kro BarResponded on September 1, 2022Hi Growit2eatit, Glad you enjoyed the food and cocktails, and we appreciate you taking the time to both review and provide feedback. We apologize if your wine temperature was not to your liking. Although we do indeed have AC, when we have the garage door opened, it is tough to keep up with the new Desert Climate that is upon the northwest. We are always torn on having it open on hot days or closing it to keep the space cool. Hope to see you again soon.

Shoutout to Cameron, the bartender who really made our experience fun. He gave my mom and I some good laughs and made us amazing drinks. The food is small plates which is nice for sharing but they are a bit pricey. It's unique food though and very tasty! Kro Bar is awesome and you should definitely check it out!

    Perfect, polite, on-point service. Delicious food. Stupid-good cocktails. Sat on the patio on a warm sunny day, equipped with screens to diminish the sun. A little pricey, but it's 2022 and an excellent experience like that deserves to an appropriate price tag, especially with restaurant overhead and supply shortages being what they are. Loved it, definitely going back for special occasions!

    This was our first time here and our dinner companions second time. The cocktails and service are the stand out winner here. We loved every drink we had, they are true mixologists and waitstaff is great at guiding your tastebuds to a drink you will enjoy. The only place they seem to fall a bit short is the food. The drinks are 5 star and the food is about a three. It's a bit of a let down. The food seems a bit slap together and disjointed. The dinner plates are a bit small for the price point and I would say the small plates and dessert were better than the mains. We highly recommend the rosemary brown sugar mixed nuts.The mains need a bit more thought. We will go back again. It's still new and they are still working on things.

    Kro BarResponded on August 12, 2022Hi, Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. It is important for a fairly new(6 months..) establishment to use this feedback to get better. We do change our menu seasonally as well as provide weekly food specials, so please do come back, enjoy the libations and continue to let us know how we are doing.

    This was our second visit and we came back specifically because Cameron is the BEST bartender! If you’re looking for a place with craft cocktails and delicious food, Kro Bar is a great choice!!
